Breeze-Up Sales Topper by KALANISI
A 3 year old gelding by Kalanisi topped the DBS National Hunt Breeze
Up Sales held at Kempton Park on Friday 4th December. Selling for
£70,000, the handsome gelding was purchased by Bloodstock
Agent Gerry Hogan, who was acting for Nick Mustoe. The gelding impressed
in his morning workout and will go into training with Emma Lavelle,
who trains a number of horses for Mustoe.
The gelding is a half brother to Grade 1 winner Glencove Marina
and was offered by Eugene McDermotts Kennycourt Stud. McDermott
had purchased the gelding at Goffs Land Rover Sale in June from
breeder Mrs Elizabeth Murphy.
Hogan commented "Emma loved him and he looks a tailor made
bumper horse and hopefully he should be ready to run in January
