Belmont Futurity Stakes (1998) Travers Stakes (1999) Brooklyn Handicap (2000) Suburban Handicap (2000) Whitney Handicap (2000) Woodward Stakes (2000)

Lemon Drop Kid (foaled 1996) is a Champion American Thoroughbred racehorse. He is among many stakes-winning Thoroughbreds to be descended from Triple Crown winner Seattle Slew. Seattle Slew is the son of, Charming Lassie. Kingmambo was his sire, himself a son of the very important Champion sire Mr. Prospector and out of the great mare, Miesque.

Lemon Drop Kid played the spoiler to Charismatic's 1999 U.S. Triple Crown run, winning the Belmont Stakes that year by catching the frontrunning Charismatic in the homestretch. Lemon Drop Kid followed up with a win in the important Grade I Travers Stakes. In 2000, he had an outstanding year, winning several major Grade I races and earning U.S. Champion Older Male Horse honors.
