A brave fellow and not the biggest, Clifton Stud’s Prince Of Kahal fought courageously once again to add the Golden Loom Handicap Listed to his already impressive race record which now features several Black Type wins.
Orphaned at 2 weeks of age when his wonderful dam, Vogue (Model Man) died after a severe bout of colic, she has left a legacy in her daughters at Clifton Stud. She is also the dam of Gr3 winner Whatalady and Gr2 winner and Dubai export who subsequently died before racing there, Fort Vogue.
Roy Magner, who trains the chestnut Kahal gelding for Hong Kong owner Robert Chung, he is Merit Rated at 118 and has now won 9 races.
A R120 000 off the KZN Yearling Sale, he has earned R 1,160,788 in stakes, and has a brilliant rapport with jockey Dennis Schwarz, who has ridden his last 4 wins in a row!
Within his last 3 wins, he has taken the Gr3 Spring Spree Stakes and recently the Gr2 Joburg Spring Challenge – and has accounted for the likes of Gr1 winners Will Pays and Chimichuri Run.
Vogue, who was a beautiful striking chestnut with a great white blaze descends from the tremendous family of Thousand Nights.
Congratulations to Peter and Jenny Blyth of Clifton Stud!
