Kodi Bear ex Arbeel colt after selling for €66,000 at Goffs

KODI BEAR’S FIRST FOALS IN DEMAND

Kodi Bear ex Arbeel colt after selling for €66,000 at Goffs

The first crop foals by Rathbarry Stud sire KODI BEAR made an excellent start in the sales ring, as they sold for up to 66,000 at the Goffs November Foal Sale.

The colt foal in question, Lot 130, was offered by Awbeg Stud and represented an excellent return on his stud fee of 10,000. Bought by Rathbarry Stud to be resold as a yearling, underbidders included shrewd pinhookers Tally-Ho Stud and Eddie O’Leary’s Lynn Lodge Stud.

Rathbarry’s Paul Cashman commented on the sale, “He’s just a lovely colt, very like his father, and he’s come from a very good farm. He’s got a lovely way of going, with a great temperament and presence. He’s a good advertisement for his sire and we were delighted to get him.”

Grange Hill Stud also had reason to celebrate when their Kodi Bear colt sold for 40,000 to Robert Levitt. Bred out of the Galileo mare Fancy Vivid, the bay colt is a half-brother to Group 3 Amethyst Stakes winner Zihba.

The popularity of Kodi Bear’s first crop continued at Tattersalls, where Howson and Houldsworth went to 40,000gns for a colt from McCracken Farms. A three-parts brother to promising juvenile Reconcile, the bay is a grandson of Park Hill Stakes third Songerie.

SON OF SHIROCCO BREAKS CHELTENHAM TRACK RECORD

Shirocco

ROCK THE KASBAH (SHIROCCO) bounced back to his best to land the Grade 3 BetVictor.com Handicap Chase at the Cheltenham November Festival, beating the track record by no less than 12 seconds.

Tracking the leader under Richard Johnson, the Philip Hobbs-trained eight-year-old asserted before the second last and stayed on well up the hill to beat Royal Vacation by a length and a quarter.

Philip Hobbs, who trains the gelding for Diana Whateley, afterwards commented, “Rock The Kasbah jumped fantastically and we’re delighted with him. We have the National in mind – good ground suits him and we’ll work back from there.”

Rock The Kasbah was bred by Joe Rogers, whose Ballintry Stud sold him as a foal to Mount Eaton Stud. They later sold him to Aiden Murphy at the Derby Sale for 140,000.

SON OF SHOLOKHOV TOPS CHELTENHAM SALE

SON OF SHOLOKHOV TOPS CHELTENHAM SALE

Muckamore (Sholokhov) sells for £190,000 at the Cheltenham November Sale

MUCKAMORE, a son of Glenview Stud stallion SHOLOKHOV, shared top-price honours at the Cheltenham November Sale, after selling to Tom Malone and Paul Nicholls for £190,000.

Malone was excited by his new purchase, afterwards commenting, ““He’s a lovely animal. He’s by Sholokhov, has got a lovely pedigree, he’s 17.1 hands and it was the first run of his life, coming from a camp that wouldn’t bully them to be ready first time out.”

Described as “a fantastic looking individual” in the paddock ahead of his sole point-to-point start, Muckamore finished second on that occassion at Loughanmore for Colin Bowe.

It marked an excellent return on Muckamore’s foal price, having been bought for  €16,500 at the November NH Sale by Hill Head Stud.

Sholokhov was not the only Glenview Stud sire in demand, as Tom Malone went to £110,000 for PICANHA, a winning son of MALINAS consigned by Andrew Latta.

The four-year-old made a successful debut at Moig South, where he showed an excellent attitude to deny the well-named Defuture Is Bright, as the pair drew 30 lengths clear of the rest. Adding to the impressive debut was that Picanha recorded the fastest winning time of the day.

Picanha also provided an excellent profit on his store price of €24,000, given by Robbie Power at Part II of the Derby Sale. Power said after his successful sale, “He’s a very nice horse, we’ve always though plenty of him and best of luck for whoever bought him with Tom Malone.”

Warren Greatrex, meanwhile, found a new owner for his bumper winner, ENCORE CHAMPS (Robin Des Champs), as he paired up with Bryan Drew at £110,000. The bumper in question was a two mile contest at Ffos Las, previously won by Rock The Kasbah. Bred by Kevin McCarthy, he has since gone on to win his hurdle debut impressively for new connections.

Victory in the $2million contest  was a well-deserved top-level success for the three-year-old son of ACCLAMATION, having finished third in the Group 1 Prix du Moulin last time out and second in the Group 1 Sussex Stakes earlier in the season.

Robin Des Champs

ROBIN DE CARLOW streaked home 11 lengths clear of her rivals in the Listed Irish EBF Novice Hurdle at Cork. The five-year-old daughter of Robin Des Champs was following up on last month’s Listed hurdle win at Limerick, having won her hurdle debut in July.

Robin De Carlow was bred by Brian Griffiths and John Nicholson out of a Presenting mare, a cross that has also produced Listed hurdler Robbin’hannon and Grade 3 performer Geordie Des Champs.

Robin Des Champs stood for €8,000 at Glenview Stud in 2018.
