News: 28 October 2010


Kalanisi enjoyed a notable double recently, as he sired two more winners over fences in England and France. He has now sired 3 chase winners from his first 4 runners over the larger obstacles- an impressive strike rate to say the least.

First off the mark was the Evan Williams trained Sheshali, who was the facile winner of a 3 mile beginners chase at Southwell on Monday 8th November. Sheshali has been a great servant to the Williams yard and has won on the flat, over hurdles and over fences since joining the Welsh trainer.

The second leg of the double was completed in Enghien in France, where the 4 year old gelding ‘Kalmonto’ was the game winner of a 4 year old chase on Wednesday 10th November. Kalmonto has shown rapid improvement since switching to the larger obstacles and should win plenty more races.

Another recent winner

Another notable recent winner for Kalanisi was the 4 year old filly ‘Kalanelli’ who made a hugely impressive winning debut in a Limerick bumper on Sunday 7th November. Trained by Bridge Stud owner Noel Henley, Kalanelli was ridden very confidently and when asked to quicken did so very effortlessly and won by a very comfortable 5 length margin. The Racing Post described the win as ‘a very impressive performance…it was very impressive in every way and she looks a mare with a real future’. Kalanelli will next run in the Listed Mares Bumper at Navan on Troytown Day on November 21st.

Other noteworthy performances

Other noteworthy runs from some of Kalanisi’s offspring recently included two fine efforts in defeat at the Cheltenham Open Meeting.

The Phillip Hobbs trained Kartanian ran a fine race in finishing 3rd in the LISTED Bumper on the Sunday. It was a great performance from the 4 year old who only made his debut at the end of September. He was prominent throughout and did most of the ‘donkey work’ in front. Despite being headed early in the straight, he stuck to his task well and stayed on all the way up the hill. He looks a really nice prospect for hurdles, be it this season or next.

Another mention must go to ‘Kalamill’ who ran in the Grade 2 JCB Triumph Hurdle Trial on the Saturday, a race that has been won twice by sons of Kalanisi in the past. Having only his second run over hurdles, Kalamill ran a very gutsy race and despite being outpaced at the top of the hill, he finished a staying on 6th in the finish, beating 8 previous winners in the process. Kalamill looks a fine dual purpose staying prospect for his trainer Shaun Lycett and owner Rich Davies.
