Tally-Ho stallions are well represented within the early entries to both the 2,000 and 1,000 Guineas in early May at Newmarket.
Kodiac holds a particularly strong hand as the sire of Kevin Ryan's Hi Royal, an easy novice winner at Ayr last autumn for Jaber Abdullah, and the Tally-Ho-bred Indesctructible, who ran second in the Acomb and Champagne Stakes for Amo Racing and Michael O'Callaghan.
In a testament to his growing reputation as a broodmare sire, Kodiac's daughters also supply the entries Charyn (out of Futoon), winner of the Group 2 Criterium de Maisons-Laffitte for Nurlan Bizakov, and Ancestral Land (out of Swing Out Sister), a Group 3-placed colt for Clive Cox.
Ancestral Land's best performance to date came when chasing home the Mehmas colt Knight in the Horris Hill Stakes. Knight (pictured below as a yearling), a brother to Malavath bred by us out of Fidaaha, was a 210,000gns yearling purchase out of our draft by Stroud Coleman at the Tattersalls October Sale and is trained by Simon and Ed Crisford.
Also represented is our young sire Kessaar, whose son Forca Timao holds an entry for Amo Racing and Richard Hannon. The colt is a graduate of our sales arm, having been sold for £90,000 to Robson Aguiar at the 2021 Goffs UK Premier Sale.
Stakes winners headline 1,000 Guineas entries
Kodiac is also well represented in the 1,000 Guineas as sire of Amo Racing's Magical Sunset, who signed off her year with a victory in the Listed Radley Stakes, and Group 2-placed Olivia Maralda. Kodiac's well-regarded daughter Fully Wet, a two-time winner for John and Thady Gosden, is also entered as is Juddmonte Farm's Zarinsk, winner of last year's Listed Ingabelle Stakes.
Mehmas' tough daughter Believing, a daughter of the Kodiac mare Misfortunate, has been entered by last year's winning combination of Highclere Thoroughbred Racing and George Boughey. She was stakes-placed on three occasions last year.
Tally-Ho graduate Lezoo, last year's Cartier Champion 2yo Filly, also holds an entry and is best priced 14/1.
