LADY KAYA (IRE) (f, 2, Dandy Man {Ire}–Kayak {GB} {SP-Ity}, by Singspiel {Ire}), third on debut over six furlongs here June 9, was quickly in front and in the clear and gone at halfway. Keeping up the gallop all the way to the line, the 13-8 favourite had an impressive 10-length margin there from Ballydoyle’s newcomer Pink Dogwood (Ire) (Camelot {GB}), the €380,000 GOFORB full-sister to the G1 Irish Derby hero Latrobe (Ire). “That was class,” jockey Robbie Colgan commented. “I pushed her out to teach her a bit at the end, but it happened so quick. I was going to take a lead, but I gave her a squeeze and she was in front and going up through the gears the whole way. Sheila [Lavery] has been waiting on a little ease in the ground and she has strengthened up over the past few weeks. There is improvement in her–she’ll go forward again and will definitely get a mile.” The listed-placed dam Kayak is a half to two other black-type performers headed by the listed scorer Bukat Timah (GB) (Inchinor {GB}). Her yearling colt by Excelebration (Ire) was bought for €26,000 by Stroud Coleman Bloodstock at the Goffs November Foal Sale, while she also has a colt foal by Camacho (GB). Sales history: €15,000 Wlg ’16 GOFNOV; €12,000 RNA Ylg ’17 TIRSEP. Lifetime Record: 2-1-0-1, $22,930. Video, sponsored by Fasig-Tipton.
O-Joanne Lavery; B-John O’Connor (IRE); T-Sheila Lavery.
