MANALAPAN, NJ -- September 27, 2018 -- The trainer and co-owners of the New Jersey-sired stallion Hurrikane Kingcole enjoyed much success with him as a racehorse and now as a sire.

In 2012, Hurrikane Kingcole paced 1:48.1 at Mohegan Sun Pocono Downs to equal the then world record for a three-year-old on a five-eighths-mile track. Then in 2015 after going 2 for 2 on the season and posting a 1:49.4 win he suffered a broken splint bone and was retired to stud.

On Sunday (Sept 16) at the Red Mile Hurrikane Emperor, son of Hurrikane Kingcole, became a two-state champion for McDermott, Klee, Kuhen and their partners. Already a winner of the New Jersey Sires Stakes final, the John McDermott trainee captured the $250,000 KYSS final for 2-year-old pacing Colts at The Red Mile. Leading every step of the way, Hurrikane Emperor held off the competition to win in a blistering 1:49.3.

Jonathan Klee said, “This is a great win for New Jersey breeding, he is now a dual sire stakes champ and has posted the fastest 2-year-old time to date.”

This win earns Hurrikane Emperor his sixth win in eight starts and brings his earnings to $214,400 for breeder and co-owner Jonathan Klee Racing. He is also owned by Kuhen Racing, Pegasis Investment Group, and Lind Racing Stable.

McDermott, Klee, Kuhen, and partners have also had success with the Hurrikane Kingcole filly Hurrikane Empress, a full sister to Hurrikane Emperor who won a leg of the KYSS for 3-year-old pacing fillies. As a 2-year-old, Hurrikane Empress was a NJSS champion and the winner of the New Jersey Futurity and Renaissance Final. To date, the filly has eight wins and earnings of over $180,000.

McDermott, Klee, Kuhen, and partners are doing an amazing job with their New Jersey-sired horses. The trio has worked hard committing time and money to the New Jersey breeding program and are getting the results they deserve.
