3 winners in a week! It's been an excellent few days for our first-crop sire Kessaar, who fired in his third winner of the week when King Of Scotia justified favouritism in the 7f maiden at Dundalk on Wednesday.
Highly tried having been placed on his first two starts for Michael O'Callaghan, King Of Scotia made the most of the opportunity on Wednesday, always travelling well under Colin Keane before picking up in the straight to win well by a length-and-a-half.
King Of Scotia was bred by John Martin McLoughney out of Princess Rose, a daughter of Royal Applause who has also produced Listed winner Andromaca. He was a €42,000 foal purchase by Lynn Lodge Stud and subsequently resold to Michael O'Callaghan for 62,000gns as a Tattersalls Craven breezer.
He is Kessaar's second winner within a week at Dundalk following the maiden success of Dynamite Katie. Dayron also broke his maiden on Sunday at Pisa.
They continue a fine season for Kessaar, which began at Newmarket's Craven meeting in April with the impressive debut success of the Roger Varian-trained Tajalla. Other highlights include the Group 3-placed Ipanema Princess and the tough Listed-placed Bolt Action.
Kessaar will stand for €5,000 in 2023.
