First-Crop Sire Kiss My Hocks Gets Two Winners and Two Stakes Qualifiers

ELGIN, TX—APRIL 5, 2019—Barely a month into the 2-year-old racing season AQHA Racing Champion Kiss My Hocks sired his first and second winners and first and second stakes finalists on Friday at Remington Park.

Liarliar Hocksonfire, a $32,000 Heritage Place Yearling Sale graduate, broke his maiden in his first career start while posting a :16.915 clocking for 330 yards to set the second fastest qualifying time to the $895,210 Remington Park Oklahoma-bred Futurity. The race final will be contested on Saturday, April 20.

Trainer R.L. "Rick" Robinson conditions the son of Kiss My Hocks for owners Jose Guzman and Rito Sosa. The sorrel gelding, out of AQHA Racing champion mare Blazin Fire by This Snow Is Royal, clocked a :16.915 time into a 6 mph headwind for the 330 yards. He is a half-brother to five black type runners including Grade 2 winner Fire Burning. Blazin Farms LLC and Conda Maze is the breeder.
