Kayf Tara "on fire" after thrilling day at the sales and races

‘The sire is on fire at the moment,’ said Frannie Woods, purchaser of the session-topping 35,000gns Kayf Tara two-year-old on day two of Doncaster’s January Sale, and we couldn’t have put it better ourselves.

With a yearling colt and two-year-old gelding both fetching 35,000gns, Kayf Tara was responsible for the top two lots in the Doncaster sales ring on Wednesday, 30 January, while on the track his offspring won at three different racecourses.

The two-year-old out of Fairmead Princess (Rudimentary) was consigned by Mill House Stud and bought by Woods on behalf of Rathbarry Bloodstock Services, while the yearling, who had won the TBA Kenneth Oliver Memorial Foal Show Championships (colts’ and geldings’ class) on Tuesday, was knocked down to Irish agent John O’Byrne. He is the first foal of the nine-time dual-purpose winner Cool Spice, who is by Karinga Bay, and was consigned by Trickledown Stud for Paul Brewer.

At the races, Young Yozza started the ball rolling with his eight-length win in the opening two-mile hurdle at Leicester for his owner/breeders David and Lynne Yearsley. Kornati Kid is one of three winning Kayf Tara geldings from Philip Hobbs’ stable and he has now won his last two races over hurdles after his victory at Exeter. Touch Of Irish brought the curtain down on Newcastle’s card with a touch of class, winning the Bumper easily by 11 lengths. The scopey-looking six-year-old, making only his second racecourse appearance, is owned by his breeder Bill Walker and is the first foal of the Zaffaran mare Portland Row.
