1st Boardsmill Winner for Kalanisi
Kalanisi sired his first winner
from his 1st Boardsmill crop on Saturday 12th January 2013 at Wetherby.
Ifits A Fiddle, a four year old filly trained by Richard Phillips,
ran out the comfortable 5 length winner of the Junior Fillies Bumper
in the hands of Jason Maguire. Her trainer describes her as a real
tough nut, characteristics that her sire has clearly passed
on to many of his progeny.
Owned and Bred by the Jersey
based Mrs Bunny Roberts, Ifits A Fiddle was having her second outing
following a gallant half-length defeat on her debut at Towcester
in November. Ifits A Fiddle is the first foal out of the dual
bumper winning Hernando mare Fiddling Again, who is one of 3 winners
out of the Grade 1 winning chaser Fiddling The Facts. An interesting
connection is that Fiddling The Facts is by a past Boardsmill sire
in Orchestra and her dam is by Furry Glen- also a former Boardsmill
This family traces back to
the great family of the Countess Of Mount Charles - that of Irish
Grand National winner Last Link, Fortria and Last Suspect.
With a winner and a second from Kalanisis first two Boardsmill
runners- is this the start of something BIG?!
