2022 fee: €5,000 - FIRST RUNNER IS A WINNER!




Kessaar’s explosive winning performances in the Gr.3 Sirenia Stakes (won by 2.5 lengths) and Gr.2 Mill Reef Stakes (won by 2.5 lengths) in 2018, marked him out as being among the very best of his generation.

His sire Kodiac has made an outstanding start as a sire of sires - sons ARDAD, ADAAY, COULSTY, KODI BEAR and PRINCE OF LIR have all sired stakes winners out of their first crops to race. 

Kessaar is the first son of Kodiac to stand at Tally-Ho Stud alongside his sire.

Kessaar's first crop are 2yos of 2022 and he has made an exceptional start as the sire of TAJALLA, an impressive winner on debut at Newmarket. So impressive was his win for Roger Varian that he was designated a 'TDN RISING STAR'.


Varian also trains impressive Leicester debut winner BOLT ACTION, a £160,000 breezer, while Andrew Balding handles TOSTADO, an impressive winner at Chester.

''We are delighted that Kessaar, one of the best two-year-olds sired by Kodiac, will be returning to Tally-Ho as a stallion. He's a good-looking, tough horse with the juvenile speed so typical of his sire and we look forward to him contributing to Kodiac's legacy''
