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, making him a very exciting prospect for the future.

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' and introduced at 14/1 for the Norfolk Stakes at Royal Ascot.

In addition, he was represented by a pair of colts who sold for £160,000 apiece at the Goffs UK Breeze-Up Sale in Doncaster.

''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''
