News: 27 May 2012


Exciting weeks lie ahead as Kalanisi’s 1st crop of National Hunt 3yo’s come under the hammer at the premier store sales in Doncaster, Goffs and Tattersalls.

Standing at Boardsmill since 2008, Kalanisi has been supported by some of the leading NH breeders in Ireland and UK covering 150 mares each year to date.

Originally retired to stud at HH Aga Khan’s Giltown Stud in Kildare, Kalanisi has enjoyed lots of success with progeny on the flat, including stakes winners Hasanka, Rajik, Alaivan, Sindirana and Enforce. However, it is the success of his flat bred progeny over jumps to date that has really attracted the attention of all the good judges.

Despite not covering large books of flat mares whilst at Giltown Stud, Kalanisi has sired a string of high class runners over jumps to date. Champion Hurdle winner Katchit, became the first horse since Persian War to follow up a Triumph Hurdle win with a Champion Hurdle win the following year. The ultra tough Barizan was the leading juvenile hurdler of his year. Other graded winners include Simarian, Alaivan and Kyrie Eleison. Whilst other highly rated performers include Act Of Kalanisi, Kartanian, Alhellal etc.

The most striking feature of Kalanisi’s NH runners to date are his phenomenal winners/runners strike rates. He has sired 45% winners/runners under NH rules to date which is surely one of the highest among his peers. Also, his first runners over fences are now appearing and to date he has sired 67% winners to runners over the larger obstacles- definitely the best % amongst his peers.

Siring all bay/brown progeny with good attitudes, Kalanisi progeny are sure to be on the top of most buyers’ lists. Listed below are all lots catalogued- click on each link to view pedigree…..
