Imperial Elysian followed up his previous success for Imperial Racing by winning easily again under Paddy Brennan in the Handicap hurdle at Kempton. The son of Kalanisi is on an upward curve for connections and there are sure to me more good days ahead for him.
Another son of Kalanisi to win was Supakalanistic, who made all to win the handicap hurdle at Market Rasen for Nigel Twiston- Davis and longtime clients of KRB, Jump For Fun Racing. This was the geldings third success.
Dorking Cock is another improving horse and he followed up his previous success when winning the handicap chase at Carlisle for the Galloping On The South Downs Partnership and trainer Tom Lacey. This was Dorking Cock’s fourth success.
Hawthorn Cottage also followed up her previous win by taking the handicap hurdle at Plumpton for the Melbourne 10 syndicate and trainer Amy Murphy. She was bought by KRB as a foal, and this was her third success.
Another foal purchase by KRB was the very promising Pencilfulloflead who easily won the maiden hurdle at Punchestown for Gordon Elliott in the colours of Robcour and ridden by Robert Power. The son of Shantou is a former bumper winner and looks to have a very bright future ahead of him.
Jungle Junction has run some good races in defeat against some quality rivals but came good to get up and win the maiden hurdle at Navan and beating another KRB purchase The Priests Leap. Both horses are nice horses for the future, the winner being bought by KRB as a yearling.
Snookered has been a fantastic serveant for Brian Ellison and he won the jumpers bumper at Newcastle this week. This was Snookered’s eighth success having now run over forty times, and he is still only six years old. He was another KRB yearling purchase.
At Kempton on the flat this week Irish Acclaim won the maiden for Paul and Clare Rooney. He is trained by Clive Cox and was given a confident front running ride by Liam Keniry.
At the February sale at Tattersalls Newmarket the Paul & Clare Rooney owned I’ll Have Another topped the sale when making £200,000 to Cormac McCormack. She was a yearling purchase by KRB costing £32,000 and she won four races and £100,000 in prize money. She is sure to make a lovely Broodmare for her new owners.
On Saturday at Kempton, Boothill made his first appearance on the racecourse for Harry Fry since being bought by KRB at Cheltenham sales after he had finished second in two point to points. He couldn’t have been more impressive when drawing clear of the field to win the bumper in impressive fashion for owners Brian and Sandy Lambert, ridden by Johnny Burke. The son of Presenting is a strapping big individual who is sure to have an exciting future over obstacles.
