Plenty of winners on the track and success in the sales ring for Britain’s leading National Hunt sire.

As the jumps season clicks into top gear, Kayf Tara is once again enjoying a fantastic spell, with four winners across the card on Friday and some decent results in the sales ring.

The 11-year-old Cantlow led the winners at Cheltenham on Friday when galloping home to a nine-length success in the Glenfarclas Cross-County Chase for JP McManus, scoring his seventh victory in the process.

Grade 2 Aintree bumper winner Kayf Grace made a successful conversion to hurdles for her owner-breeders James and Jean Potter when landing the National Hunt Novices’ Hurdle over two miles, and four-year-old gelding Kayf Mariner landed the bumper on the card on his debut for Alan King.

The well-bred Two Swallows, out of the good hurdler One Gulp, a half-sister to Grand National winner Rule The World, landed her first win at Doncaster, taking the handicap hurdle for Ben Pauling and owner Mrs Waters. Two Swallows was bred by Bobby McAlpine at Richard and Sally Aston’s Goldford Stud.

At the Goffs December Sale, Kayf Tara’s multiple Listed-winning hurdler Give It Time was the second-most expensive horse of the sale after being knocked down in foal to Walk In The Park for €75,000. Top price among the National Hunt foals on offer at Goffs was given for the colt out of Gaye Memories, who was bought by Aiden Murphy for €57,000.

A long-term supporter of Kayf Tara, Aiden Murphy also signed for his three-year-old out of Seemarye, who was the most expensive of the breezers at Tattersalls Ireland’s Cheltenham Sale at £95,000. Bred by The Glanvilles Stud, the gelding had previously sold for €53,000 at the Derby Sale back in June.

The outstanding Thistlecrack, who is unbeaten over fences this season, heads the Christmas raiding party for Kayf Tara and is currently second-favourite to stablemate Cue Card for the G1 King George VI Chase at Kempton in which he could be joined by his paternal half-brothers Tea For Two and Blaklion.

Kayf Tara is currently lying in second place on the table for all active National Hunt sires in Britain and Ireland behind Presenting.
