Kayf Tara filly among top lots

28/01/10 - The 2010 sales circuit kicks off at Doncaster where Britain’s leading jumps sire is well represented

A Kayf Tara filly foal out of the high-class chaser Heltornic was among the top five lots at Doncaster’s January sale when selling to Simon Hubbard Rodwell for £30,000.

"She walked brilliantly and I loved her when I saw her,” Hubbard Rodwell told the Racing Post. “She's got the pedigree which you have to have now if you're breeding and really ticked all the right boxes. Hopefully it's a family going places.”

The owner of Scottish National winner Hot Weld and breeder of Canford Cliffs, Hubbard Rodwell is compiling a National Hunt broodmare band at his Saxtead Hall Stud in Suffolk and hopes eventually to breed from the filly. Prior to that she will be trained by Nicky Henderson.

Also among the 36 Kayf Tara weanlings catalogued was a colt out of three-time winner Valentines Lady, who was sold to the Jamestown Consignment for £24,000 and the Trickledown Stud-consigned son of Cool Spice, who was selected by Highflyer Bloodstock for £20,000. This colt’s full-brother sold for £35,000 as a foal two years ago.

Trainer-turned-bloodstock agent Mark Pitman bought Goldford Stud’s Kayf Tara colt out of Rosita Bay for £17,000 and colts from Exit Baby and Realms Of Gold made £15,500 and £15,000 respectively.

Kayf Tara’s new stablemate and fellow young jumps sire Sagamix took part in the stallion parade on the first day of the sale and has had a favourable reception from National Hunt breeders in Britain since his arrival in the country.
