News: 3 November 2014


Boardsmill Sires are well represented at the upcoming Tattersalls November National Hunt Sale.

Kalanisi is represented by 9 yearlings (8 geldings and 1 filly), 14 foals (10 colts and 4 fillies) and 3 older horses (2 fillies and 1 gelding) whilst there are also 2 mares carrying in foal to the Grade 1 sire.

Kalanisi’s first Boardsmill crop are still only 5yo’s and he has been enjoying a real purple patch of late with his progeny on the racecourse. Recent bumper winners have included Run Fly Run (WP Mullins), Mr Steadfast (Gordon Elliott), Black Zambezi (Colm Murphy), Alphabet Bay (Warren Greatrex), Callaghy Beauty (Gordon Elliott) and Professor Plum (Rose Dobbin). Over hurdles his first Boardsmill runners have proved equally impressive. The winning Grade 3 placed mare Storm Away and the Charlie Longsdon trained Kalane are two such recent winners.
Buyers who are looking for fillies should take note of Kalanisi’s high percentage of winning fillies and bear in mind he already has sired Stakes Fillies on the flat, over hurdles and over fences.

Having covered 150 mares in each of his first 4 seasons at Boardsmill and with his current crop of 3 year olds being of the highest quality of those crops- Kalanisi is not going to be short of representatives on the racetrack over the coming years. This is the year to invest in his yearlings and foals!

Court Cave is represented by 7 yearlings (5 geldings and 2 fillies), 26 foals (16 colts and 10 fillies), 1 older filly and there are 3 mares carrying in foal to the son of Sadler’s Wells.

Court Cave is proving as popular as ever with trainers in the sales ring. There were some notable pin-hooking successes this past year for consignors of progeny by Court Cave including horses realising £90k (cost €19k), £60k (cost €18k), €48k (cost €6k), €47k (cost €12k), €46k (cost €8,800) etc.

The success of his progeny on the track to date is all the more notable given that his crops of racing age range in size from only 17 foals to 58 foals and with much bigger crops aged 3 and younger to come on stream- his reputation is surely going to rise further in the next 2 or 3 years. All the more reason to be investing in Court Cave stock this coming sales season!

The new kid on the Boardsmill Roster is CALIFET and he covered over 150 mares in his first season here and there are 5 opportunities to purchase a mare carrying in foal to this popular sire.

Califet has enjoyed his most successful season to date with his progeny on the racetrack and with his current crop of 3 year olds (83) being his biggest crop in France- there is a lot to look forward to over the coming years. He has already sired 13 3yo winners and has of course got high class 4yo’s Clarcam, Analifet and Calipto to look forward to this season.

Califet had three 3 year olds offered for sale at the UK and IRE store sales this year and they proved very popular averaging €48k. Buyers included Tom Malone Bloodstock (for Paul Nicholls), Highflyer Bloodstock (Warren Greatrex) and Brendan Bashford.
