Unusual double for Overbury stallions

08/05/10 - Kayf Tara and Bertolini represented by winners on the same card

It’s not often that Britain’s Champion National Hunt stallion Kayf Tara and leading speed influence Bertolini get the chance for a double on the same card but Saturday's mixed meeting at Haydock provided just that opportunity, Tara Royal winning a novice chase half an hour before Prime Defender won a competitive sprint conditions race.
Bred by Christopher Mason, Prime Defender was winning for the sixth time in an admirable career, those victories including three Listed contests: the European Free Handicap and Sandy Lane Stakes in 2007 and last season’s Cammidge Trophy at Doncaster. He has also been Group-placed on three occasions.
Since the beginning of May, Bertolini’s offspring have won races in New Zealand, Hong Kong, America, Italy and the UK and he celebrated his first two juvenile winners of the European campaign on 3 May when Dads Amigo scored at Beverley and Palazzo Reale landed a conditions race in Florence.
Tara Royal struck early in the new jumps season for Kayf Tara, landing his fourth victory in only nine career starts in the two-and-a-half mile beginners’ chase. The Donald McCain-trained five-year-old has also won two hurdle races and a point-to-point and was bred by Cobhall Court Stud.
