02/03/10 - Another trio of victories for Kayf Tara’s offspring; two black type performers for Bertolini

Six-year-old Tom O’Tara made it two wins in less than a fortnight with a battling performance which saw him get the better of last-time-out winner and race favourite Nous Voila at Warwick on Friday, 26 February. The son of Kayf Tara won at odds of 50/1 on his previous start but was a much warmer 9/2 for his most recent outing during which he led for much of the race and fought back after being headed at the third last hurdle.

Also on Saturday, the Jessica Harrington-trained Taravada, a winner in bumpers and over hurdles, took third in the G2 Nas Na Riogh Chase at Thurles.

Earlier in the week, Wordy’s Boy saluted the judge on his fourth bumper outing, winning over two miles and a furlong at Doncaster for his owner/breeder L Wordingham of Wordingham Plant Hire. The Kayf Tara five-year-old is out of the Welsh Captain mare Wordy’s Wonder, herself a multiple winner in bumpers and hurdle races.

Adding his name to the scoresheet on Tuesday, 2 March was Circus Of Dreams, now seven and a winner in December 2008 over hurdles at Folkestone. David Knox’s homebred has since posted several placed efforts in steeplechases and took the two-mile Captain Machell Beginners’ Chase at Leicester by 16 lengths, leaving his rivals trailing from the second-last fence.

A delighted Mr Knox was on hand to be interviewed on camera for At The Races after the victory and said that Circus of Dreams’ dam Foehn Gale, by Strong Gale, is his sole mare and has so far bred him nine colts!

In the northern and southern hemispheres, two of Bertolini’s stalwart campaigners added yet more black type to two honourable race records on Saturday. Suits Me, 11 times a winner, including at Listed level, found only American Grade One winner Gitano Hernando too good for him in the Listed Winter Derby Trial at Lingfield and Juice, previously a Group Three winner and Group One-placed in New Zealand, finished runner-up by less than a length in the TRAC Stakes at Matamata.
