Grade 2 Juvenile Hurdle winner for Kalanisi

Simarian (by Kalanisi ex Sinnariya) confirmed his position as the leading rated juvenile hurdler this year with an impressive win at Cheltenham’s open meeting last Saturday (15 Nov 2008).

In the best juvenile hurdle run to date this season, Simarian ran out a most impressive winner by bounding up the Cheltenham hill and leaving 10 previous winners toiling in his wake.

This was Simarian’s 4th hurdle win and amazingly his first win was back on Derby day (June 7th) in the first juvenile hurdle of the season. He has shown enormous improvement in his last two starts (both at Cheltenham) and the manner in which he has powered up the hill on both occasions leaves you wondering how much more improvement has yet to come.

As highlighted in the Racing Post this win was a case of déjà vu, as the corresponding race two years ago was won by another son of Kalanisi, who too showed immense improvement from one run to the next- that horse was Katchit! Is Simarian another Triumph Hurdle winner in the making?

Trainer Evan Williams said ‘He improves in front of your eyes every week. His improvement at home has been dramatic to say the least. If he improves between now and the spring as much as he has improved between the summer and now, then God knows where he’ll end up’

Williams purchased Simarian at the Doncaster HIT Sales last January from HH The Aga Khans Studs for £21,000. He is a keen fan of Kalanisi’s offspring and purchased another of his sons at Doncaster in October. The winning 2 year old ‘Barizan’ cost £26,000. Watch out for him next year!
