Second helping of success for Long Lunch

Kayf Tara gelding cores on hurdles debut after recent bumper victory 21 October 2013

 

Charlie Longsdon has his string in great form and one of his up-and-coming stars is the Kayf Tara four-year-old Long Lunch, who on Monday added a debut victory over hurdles to last month’s bumper success.

Out of Relkeel’s half-sister Royal Keel, Long Lunch was bred by Overbury Stallions Ltd and is a brother to the winning mare Kayf Keel and half-brother to six-time scorer Hidden Keel (Kirkwall) and Torta Nel Cielo (Bertolini).

Describing Long Lunch as having a “very likeable attitude”, his trainer paid €28,000 for him at Tattersalls Ireland’s Derby Sale last year and the youngster is already repaying the faith shown in him, his four starts having resulted in two victories, a second and a fourth.

Kayf Tara was represented by another winner on Sunday at Kempton as eight-year-old Gallox Bridge took his tally of victories to five when winning a two-mile handicap chase in the hands of Richard Johnson. Kayf Tara is once again leading the stallion table for British-based National Hunt sires with 23 winners to his name so far this season.
