Another fruitful week for Kayf Tara

21/01/12 - Five winners in two days for Britain’s leading jumps sire

With a strike rate that continues to improve, Kayf Tara added five more victories to his seasonal tally this week with three winners in Britain and Ireland on Thursday and another two on Friday.

Point-to-point winner Overnight Fame secured her fist victory under Rules when winning the 2m5f handicap chase at Lingfield on Thursday. Bred in Ireland by Malachy and Anne Hanley, the eight-year-old mare has also been placed over hurdles and fences.

The 145-rated hurdler Micheal Flips, another who was bred in Ireland, has made a successful conversion to fences and he won his second chase, this time at Taunton, also on Thursday.
Completing the trio of winners that day was the Dermot Weld-trained Merchant Royal, who scored at Thurles to being up his hat-trick of hunter chase victories. Bred by Sandra Nolan and John Prunty, the eight-year-old gelding races for Weld’s son Kris.

The following day, seven-year-old Altan Khan recorded his third win when landing the Goodbye 32 Hello 33 George Primarolo Birthday Handicap Chase, named in honour of the Betfred/Totepool spokesman, over two miles at Catterick.

Also in the winner’s enclosure on Friday was the Paul Nicholls-trained Hawkes Point, a full-brother to the four-time winner Alfie Sherrin, who was bought for £110,000 at the DBS August Sale in 2010 and has now won over hurdles and between the flags in just four starts.

With 45 winners from 122 runners this season, Kayf Tara has the highest strike rate (37 per cent) of the top ten National Hunt stallions in Britain and Ireland.
