KALANISI- 1st Boardsmill crop 3yo’s in 2012

Having moved to Boardsmill in 2008, Kalanisi has now spent 4 fully booked seasons at stud covering mostly National Hunt mares. Therefore, his first Boardsmill crop has just turned 3 years old. It is amazing to think that all his success under National Hunt rules to date has come from a limited number of his Flat Bred progeny who switched codes.

He has sired 45% winners/runners under NH rules including Grade 1 winners Katchit and Barizan. And even more impressive is his winners/runners % over fences- currently running at 67%.

Whilst his 1st Boardsmill representatives are 3 in 2012, there were some astute National Hunt breeders who used Kalanisi in his final year at the Aga Khan’s Giltown Stud in 2007. The resulting offspring are 4yo’s this year and it is with great excitement that we await their arrival on the racecourse. Some of these have received favourable mentions in recent weeks from their connections and are in the safe hands of Paul Nolan, Colin Bowe, Wilson Dennison, Charlie Swan, Niall Hannity, Stuart Crawford, Edward O’Grady to name a few.

Many breeders have told us that they see Kalanisi with a very similar stud profile to the ill-fated King’s Theatre with very similar early results with his Flat Bred offspring. If that’s the case, then surely there isn’t a better time to use Kalanisi just as his first National Hunt bred progeny are hitting the track and the store sales ring!
