A fan favorite and the 2007 New York Horse of the Year, Naughty New Yorker is a striking dark bay stallion who won an impressive 11 stakes races, highlighted by a 1 ¾ length victory in the Grade III Red Smith Handicap at Aqueduct. A son of Quiet American, Naughty New Yorker was trained by Patrick Kelly for owners Fox Ridge Farm and frequently squared off against fellow Old Friends at Cabin Creek residents Be Bullish, Commentator, and Driven By Success. Some of his other notable victories came in the Albany Stakes, the Noble Nashua Stakes, and the Saratoga Sunrise Stakes, all at Saratoga. In his 7-year career, he made 67 starts with 12 wins and 20 in-the-money-finishes, which included a pair of thirds in the Grade I Cigar Mile and Grade III Gotham Stakes.

Retired from racing at the age of nine in 2011 with total earnings of $1,089,884, Naughty New Yorker began his stud career a year later at Ascot Stud in Ontario, where he lived for nine years prior to retiring to Old Friends at Cabin Creek. His best progeny is Dirty Dozen, a six-time winner of over $100,000. Naughty New Yorker arrived at Old Friends at Cabin Creek in March of 2021. Thank you to Chris Blake at Ascot Stud for trusting us with his care.
