KETTLE WON created quite a stir in his 2-year-old debut during the 1998 Saratoga meet as the Todd Pletcher-trainee blew away the opposition with a ten and a half-length romp in maiden special company. He has since competed successfully on dirt and turf, going short and long, and fiinished second in the Fort Lauderdale Handicap-G3 over Gulfstream Park's turf course in March of 2000. A half-brother to the durable allowance horse GLIDE HOME, KETTLE WON is out of championSAFELY KEPT's half-sister SAFE AT THE PLATE, a stakes-placed winner of $114,923.

Six times in his 4 and 5-year-old seasons, from Pennsylvania to Kentucky, COGNAC KISSES hit the board in stakes events, including the final start of his career, the Gr. 3 Maryland Sprint H. on Preakness Day at Pimlico in 2008. That race epitomized COGNAC KISSES's career—the tough competitor just missed in a three-horse photo finish in which the final time (1:09 2/5) was just two-fifths of a second off the 18-year-old track record. In six starts during his 5-year-old season, he was never off the board, with a win and four stakes-placings. For his career, COGNAC KISSES earned $178,094 from 28 starts (5 wins, 5 seconds and 6 thirds).

A half-brother to graded stakes-placed KETTLE WON and the durable allowance horse and $365,683-earner GLIDE HOME, COGNAC KISSES is one of nine winners out of champion SAFELY KEPT's half-sister SAFE AT THE PLATE, a multiple stakes-placed winner of $114,923.
