Kheleyf Tops GB-Ireland 1st-Crop Table
In Europe, Ireland's Kildangan Stud-based 7YO Darley stallion Kheleyf (Green Desert-Society Lady, by Mr Prospector) "surged to the top of the 1st-season sires list following the victory of Jargelle in the weekend's Weatherbys Super Sprint at Newbury" in England, reported Irish Thoroughbred Marketing. Jargelle was a €23,000 (A$39,000) foal at Goffs. Kheleyf has now sired 17 winners of 21 races for prize-money of £148,751 (A$312,000). Fellow Darley stallion Exceed And Excel & Coolmore's One Cool Cat are joint 2nd on the list with 11 1st-crop winners each.
