Kingman x Split Decision

This filly wowed the crowd at the Highclere parade of yearlings with her great walk and fantastic good looks.  If it had been a beauty contest she would have been the clear winner!  She has good depth and real strength, with a particularly powerful second thigh.

She was purchased at Ireland’s premier sale, the Goffs Orby and with the benefit of hindsight, which very much worked in our favour, the feeling is that she would have sold for considerably more had she been in the Book 1 sale at Tattersalls.  

Kingman was the best son of the leading sire of Invincible Spirit and the winner of four Group 1 races at two and three.  Handled superbly by this filly’s trainer John Gosden, he was second in the 2,000 Guineas at three and then went on to win the Irish 2,000 Guineas, St James’s Palace Stakes, Sussex Stakes and Prix Jacques Le Marois in what was an outstanding season that saw him crowned as the highest-rated European-trained racehorse with a Timeform rating of 134.  The young sire has made a sensational start to his career in the covering barn, siring the Poule d'Essai des Poulains Gr.1 Classic winner Persian King, impressive Coventry Stakes Gr.2 winner Calyx and Prix Guillaume d'Ornano Gr.2 winner Headman from his first crop, along with Musidora Stakes Gr.3 winner Nausha, Hampton Court Stakes Gr.3 winner Sangarius. He is the sire of 10 Listed winners in 2019 including Alligator Alley, Alocasia, Fox Chairman, King Of Comedy and Summer Romance.  Click here to view sire information about Kingman.

This outstanding filly’s dam is a full-sister to the Irish Derby winner Trading Leather, who also finished second in the Juddmonte International, Coral Eclipse Stakes and King George VI & Queen Elizabeth Diamond Stakes.  Another Classic winner in the pedigree is the 1,000 Guineas winner Hatoof – it would certainly be no surprise if this daughter of Kingman became one herself and she is most definitely in the right hands!
