Kalanisi- 1st Crop runners catch the eye

Kalanisi’s 1st Boardsmill crop are now 4 year olds in 2013 and already we have seen some eye catching runs from his 1st runners. Both his 1st two runners were just touched off in their respective Junior Bumpers.

First to represent him was his daughter ‘Ifits A Fiddle’ who made her debut at Towcester on November 8th in the Juvenile Fillies Bumper. Trained by Richard Phillips for Jersey based owner/breeder Mrs Bunny Roberts, Ifits A Fiddle ran a really game race and battled all the way up the stiff Towcester finish to go down by just ¼ length despite being bumped inside the final furlong. This was a very promising first run and the form has been franked since as the winner landed her next race also in a Newbury bumper carrying a penalty.

Kalanisi’s 2nd runner from his initial Boardsmill crop was the 3yo gelding ‘Kalucci’ who made his debut at Wetherby on December 8th. This was a well contested Juvenile Bumper and there were plenty of fancied runners in the 15 strong field. Kalucci took up the running 3f out and was headed inside the final furlong but battled all the way to the line and was staying on again at the finish, going down by just ¾ length. Interestingly, the winner ‘Master Red’ was sold for £100,000 to Donald McCain at the following weeks Brightwells Sale at Cheltenham.
Kalucci was due to re-appear in the prestigious 4yo Listed Bumper at Cheltenham on New Year’s Day, but unfortunately this meeting was abandoned. Kalucci was bred by prominent Westmeath breeder Cathal Ennis out of the good race mare Anno Luce. We eagerly await his next run.

All positive signs from Kalanisi’s 1st Boardsmill representatives- here’s looking forward to a prosperous new year!
