More Black Type Success for KALANISI

Kalanisi sired yet another black type winner as Alaivan bolted up in the LISTED Lenebane Stakes at Roscommon on Monday 6th July.

Alaivan was always travelling well under Mick Kinane and when asked to assert in the home straight, he powered clear of his 5 rivals to register a facile 3 and a half length success from the Aidan O’Brien trained Von Jawlensky.

This was the Aga Khan owned gelding’s second success from just 4 starts and he was also placed 2nd in the 10 furlong Group 3 Gallinule Stakes at the Curragh on his 3rd outing. On that occasion he was beaten just a short head by Grand Ducal. Given he only made his debut at the end of March this year, there is likely to be a lot more improvement in this gelded son of Kalanisi.

Alaivan is the 5th foal out of the winning Ela-Mana-Mou mare ‘Alaya’. She has already produced two other winners including ‘Alayan’ whose 5 wins includes the Leopardstown 2000 Guineas trial. ‘Alaya’ who is a half sister to the Irish Derby winner ‘Alamshar’, has a colt foal by Oratario at foot and is currently in foal to Epsom Derby winner ‘Authorised’. Incidentally, Alaya’s only un-raced produce of racing age to date is her 2003 filly by Indian Danehill. Named ‘Aladiyna’, she is currently in foal to Kalanisi and therefore carrying a three parts brother or sister to Alaivan. A shrewd mating choice by owners Larry and Anne Gleeson who bought Aladiyna in November 2006 for €20,000.
