Awesome Patriot has his first winner with the filly Amberspatriot.

Amberspatriot First Winner for Awesome Patriot
Spendthrift Farm's freshman sire Awesome Patriot got his first winner April 19 at Keeneland, where Amberspatriot won a $60,000 maiden special weight going 4 1/2 furlongs by a length over males.
The juvenile filly out of the winning Limehouse daughter Starkey was bred in Kentucky by Jim and Pam Robinson's Brandywine Farm and was offered through the 2016 Keeneland September yearling sale, where she was bought back for $1,300. Starkey has now produced two winners from as many starters. Her first foal is Midway Playa, a 3-year-old colt by American Lion.

Sunny Skies just won the 1st at Keeneland, a 4 1/2-furlong MSW full of nicely-bred fillies. TVG said she is the first winner for Animal Kingdom, although I wonder if he has had a winner already in Australia, where he stood first before coming back to the US.
Sunny Skies looks like she could be something special, as the lovely chestnut opened up in the stretch to win by what looked like double-digits...and she did it with no urging and with her ears pricked the whole way. :D

Animal Kingdom has 3 winners so far in Australia. Sunny Skies is his first northern hemisphere runner and winner.

Holy smokes that was a fabulous debut. Really have liked what AK has been throwing. Types that look like any kind. That kind of debut (on dirt, no less) makes you dream if you have an AK in the barn.

Thanks for the info, which doesn't surprise me. IMHO, AK is going to be a very good sire, and I can't wait to see how his next US crop does.
I believe that many new sires are bred to speedy mares, in order to acquire good stats with precocious runners. If that goes well, the second or third season will see the 'stout' mares brought in, and that crop could hold the best chances for classic winners.

Wow, I'm over the moon to hear that about Animal Kingdom, I'm really rooting for him as a sire and think he could be a fantastic asset both in North America and the Southern Hemisphere. He's got such an interesting pedigree.
I imagine a replay for Sunny Skies's debut will be up on the Keeneland website?
