News: 9 August 2011

Court Cave and Kalanisi were to the fore at Downpatrick on Sunday (7th August) as they combined to sire an amazing 1-2-3 in the bumper.

It was the odds on favourite Court Lexi, a 4 year old daughter of Court Cave, who proved victorious leading home the debutante Pond Cottage (by Kalanisi) with Mullawhillin Boy (by Court Cave) staying on strongly at the finish to complete the clean sweep.

Court Lexi is another great advertisement her young sire as she looks destined to achieve greater success than her dam who was just a winning plater on the level and over hurdles. Bred here at Boardsmill Stud, she becomes the third winning filly by Court Cave to be bred by Boardsmill. Trained by Gordon Elliott for his stables Racing Club, Court Lexi was shrewdly purchased as a foal by Mr Charlie Johnston and his judgement is being rewarded now as his pride and joy has won and been 2nd twice from all three starts to date.

Not to be outdone by his younger Stud Mate, Kalanisi notched up two more winners the following day (8th August). Morar notched up her 4th success by landing a staying handicap at Lingfield for trainer Laura Mongan, whilst the towering 'Alhellal' was the facile winner of the 2m4f maiden hurdle at Ballinrobe. This was Alhellal's 2nd victory, following his recent bumper win at Roscommon and he looks like a nice prospect for trainer Michael Phelan.

All this success, comes on the eve of the 3 day Tattersalls August Sale where Kalanisi and Court Cave in particular are well represented.
