Another day, another big winner for rapidly rising star Kingman
Another day, another big winner for Kingman. Just three days after Persian King landed the Poule d'Essai des Poulains at Longchamp, Nausha became the third Group winner from Kingman's debut crop with a gutsy success in Wednesday's Tattersalls Musidora Stakes at York.
Kingman's other Group winner is Calyx, who proved his immense potential remained intact when making a winning three-year-old reappearance in the Merriebelle Stable Commonwealth Cup Trial Stakes at Ascot.
That trio are among 39 winners sired by Kingman, a list that also includes the Listed scorers Look Around, Poetry and Sangarius.
Nazym, a 1,700,000gns yearling purchase by Charlie Gordon-Watson Bloodstock, is closely related to Sequoyah, a daughter of Sadler's Wells who landed the 2000 Moyglare Stud Stakes before she retired to the paddocks, from where she produced four-time Group 1 winner Henrythenavigator.
Sequoyah also produced Group 3 winner Queen Cleopatra, granddam of Cliffs Of Moher among others.
Sequoyah is not the only Group 1-winning sibling of Nazym, and she is also closely related to Listen, winner of the 2007 Fillies' Mile. Further back in the pedigree are the likes of Breeders' Cup Turf Sprint winner Stormy Liberal, Saffron Walden and Dewhurst Stakes victor Beethoven.
In landing Wednesday's Group 3 prize, Nausha edged out Enable's Dansili half-sister Entitle, who dead-heated for second with Frankellina, a daughter of Frankel from the family of Golden Horn and Rebecca Sharp.
That result means the first three home were all conceived at Juddmonte's Banstead Manor Stud.
