Another Stakes winner for KALANISI
sired another stakes winner on Saturday last, when his 4 year old
daughter Hasanka gained a deserved victory in the LISTED Ballycullen
Stakes at the Curragh. On her previous outing 2 weeks ago, Hasanka
beat all bar the classic bound Unsung Heroine in the
Group 3 Give Thanks Stakes at Cork.
The homebred filly, racing in the colours of His Highness the Aga
Khan, showed her rivals a clean pair of heels when turning for home
and once Michael Kinane had gained a 6 length lead, the result was
never in doubt. Hasanka won eased down at the finish to record her
2nd win at LISTED level.
Hasanka is out of the Top Ville mare Hasainiya who this year had
a filly foal also by Kalanisi. Hasainiya has foaled 9 foals in total,
8 of racing age and to date Hasanka is by far the most illustrious
of her progeny. All 8 progeny of racing age are by different sires,
illustrating the influence of Kalanisi as a sire.
Hasanka has rewarded her connections with their decision to keep
her in training as a 4 year old and they are contemplating taking
their chance in the final classic of the Irish flat season, the
Group 1 Irish Field St Leger.
