Royal Ascot Winner for Kalanisi
Kalanisi crowned a memorable first season at Boardsmill Stud by
siring a winner on the opening day of Royal Ascot today.
The 5 year old mare Missoula was the game winner of the 2 mile
4 furlongs Ascot Stakes in the hands of Sam Hitchcott.
Trained by Suzy Smith, Missoula finished with a determined late
run to deny a host of other horses in a thrilling head bobbing finish.
Bred by Pollards Stables, Missoula has now won 4 of her 16 starts
with earnings of over £65,000 stg. She hails from the 1st
crop of Kalanisi and was one of his first crop two year old winners.
Kalanisi is now the sire of a Cheltenham Champion Hurdle Winner
and a Royal Ascot Winner in 2008!
He has covered a full book of mares in 2008 and will cover a strictly
limited book again in 2009.
