There are three lights on a stoplight, you get three strikes in baseball, the genie grants you three wishes and last but not least there are three Musketeers, and this past Saturday, Kahal had three Musketeers of his own.
Saturday’s racing at Greyville saw the first three races won by none other than three sons of Kahal.
In the first race over 1300 metres, the Adam Kethro-trained and owned East Coast Gold, bred by Greenhill Farm, cruised in to win from Winters Edge and Jacob Davies. A half brother (Lot 140) to East Coast Gold, by another Summerhill stallion – Muhtafal, sold for R600 000 at the National Yearling Sales on Sunday.
The second race saw Roofing across the finish line first, this time a Kahal colt bred by Connington Stud. And then to complete this hat trick, Phi, a Kahal colt bred by our other neighbouring farm, Bush Hill Stud, beat Sheik’s Fantasy and Precedent in the third race over 1900m.
No wonder that Kahal’s sales average for 17 lots sold at the National Sales so far, is R372 000, and that the current sales topper is none other than a half brother by Kahal, to Group 1 winner Rebel King. So you better wake up if you don’t want to lose out, as there are only 6 Kahal’s left to sell on the last day of the National Yearling Sales. Two of the last six being outstanding colts bred by Summerhill - Lots 432 and 567.
