An exciting young horse is offered for sale in training with Gold Cup winning jockey Sam Thomas. One 25% share remains in this attractive son of Kalanisi.
He remains unraced and will be aimed at a bumper in the New Year. His credentials look excellent from a pedigree perspective. His dam was placed in point-to-points and has siblings that won under rules.
The aforementioned dam Lady Taipan is a daughter of Taipan, who continues to forge his reputation as one of the most influential NH broodmare sires in existence. Recent examples of his prowess in this field are plentiful, including some of the most exciting young horses of modern times. Dual Grade-1 winning novice hurdler and exciting novice chaser Finian's Oscar is out of a daughter of Taipan, as is the late lamented dual Grade-1 bumper winner Fayonagh and Grade-2 winning novice hurdler Poetic Rhythm.
The sire of this young horse is Kalanisi, who has a well-earned reputation as a reliable source of NH performers. Winner of the Champion Stakes (beating Montjeu) and Breeders Cup Turf in his racing days, he has achieved lasting success in the breeding sheds. He has supplied a Champion Hurdle winner in the shape of Katchit and has had notable recent success with the likes of 162-rated Grade-3 hurdles winner Brain Power and Grade-1 winning novice hurdler Barter's Hill.
With such an excellent pedigree and winning looks, this horse will surely not be long in fulfilling his abundant promise. One 25% share remains, costing £5,000 plus VAT and monthly training fees.
