When making his debut in a ten-runner three-mile maiden point-to-point, Kalabana was described by the commentator as ‘one for the notebook’. It was hard to disagree that comment, for he moved smoothly into contention on the home turn – which was still half a mile from the finish – and then stayed on to finish third on ground which had been watered and was described as ‘tiring’ by several riders. The first two had the benefit of a recent run and came from very smart stables, and it is sure the experience will have taught this horse plenty. (View replay here)
The winner of that race was sold for £70k and the horse in second was only a length in front of Kalabana sold for £24k.
The sire has produced multiple group1 winners such as Champion Hurdle & Triumph Hurdle winner Katchit and Aintree winner Kalashnikov to name but a few.
UPDATE: He ran once last year but was still quite backward. So after a small set back we gave him a summer at grass. That will do him the world of good and we expect to see the best of his this year over fences.
