Kahal as a broodmare sire has won a Gr1 and a Gr2 in the space of a week in two different provinces, as the broodmare sire of Ambiance-bred Royal Victory and Kwinta’s Light bred by Syrilla Stud.
The deceased son of Machiavellian out of a Green Desert mare, who stood at Summerhill Stud for much of his career prior to his transfer to Bush Hill Stud, saw his handsome grandson take the Gr1 Betway Summer Cup a week at Turffontein, followed up with Justin Snaith’s beautifully bred Kwinta’s Light, taking the Gr2 WSB Southern Cross Stakes.
Kwinta’s Light is by Gimmethegreenlight and races in the colours of Maine Chance Farms.
It was a double at Hollywoodbets Kenilworth for the Shadwell Stud-owned Kahal, as his tall leggy grand-daughter Eternal Optimist, by Querari out of Kahal mare Cousin Annie, won race four over 1600m.
Kwinta’s Light is out of Kwinta, an own sister to Eastern Greeting and Kalaam – all bred by KZN breeders Kjell Foundation’s Benson family based in Karkloof.
All of the aforementioned mares are resident as broodmares in the Cape.
