Kayf Tara to parade at Cheltenham 13/11/08

The three-day Open Meeting at Cheltenham kicks off on Friday with the annual TBA National Hunt stallion parade before racing at 11am.

Kayf Tara joins the 12 stallions on  parade as usual, which include Conduit Farm Stud’s Kirkwall. Dan Matty has been hard at work preparing Kayf Tara for his annual public appearance and we’re thrilled with how well he looks and really looking forward to showing him off on Friday.

His talents are set to be highlighted by a number of his offspring entered to run at Cheltenham over the weekend, including the exciting G2 bumper winner Mad Max, who is set to make his hurdles debut for Nicky Henderson’s stable on the opening day in the G2 Sharp Novices’ Hurdle.

Recent winners Tara Two Hills and Tot Of The Knar are also among the entries, as is Kayf Keel, who converted some promising efforts last year into victory on 3 November when winning a two-mile handicap hurdle at Warwick. Bred by Mrs M J Matthey, the five-year-old mare hails from a lovely jumping family. She is out of Royal Keel, a half-sister to the three-time Bula Hurdle winner Relkeel. Royal Keel returned to Kayf Tara in 2007 and her colt foal is with us here at the stud.

Kayf Tara’s most recent winner is Like Minded, already a successful point-to-pointer, who made his debut under rules for Don Cantillon on Tuesday at Lingfield. The four-year-old extended his unbeaten tag to two from two when landing the two-mile bumper. Like Minded, who was bred by Ian Low and sold at Goffs last year for €35,000, is out of Sun Dante (Phardante), who is a half-sister to the Nicky Henderson’s former smart jumper Chauvinist.

Kayf Tara’s stock has also been well received at the Tattersalls Ireland National Hunt Sale over the last week. His yearlings and foals have averaged €24,654 (£20,639) for 11 sold to date. Goldford Stud consigned a yearling colt out of Squaw Talk, who fetched €42,000. His three-year-old full brother sold at the Derby Sale in June for €82,000.
