Freshman Sire Coulsty Off the Mark at Kempton

Coulsty | Norman Court Stud


On a banner weekend for his sire Kodiac (GB) (Danehill), Coulsty (Ire) made a mark of his own on Sunday when Eve Johnson Houghton trainee Enduring (GB) justified market support to garner the six-furlong Unibet Thanks The Frontline Workers Maiden Auction S. at Kempton and become the first winner for the Rathasker Stud-based freshman.

1st-Kempton, £5,400, Mdn, 6-21, 2yo, 6f (AWT), 1:13.51, st/sl.
ENDURING (GB) (c, 2, Coulsty {Ire}–Yearbook {GB}, by Byron {GB}) was sent off as the 5-2 joint-favourite coming back from a June 3 debut fourth tackling five furlongs at Great Yarmouth, behind the track-record performance of subsequent G2 Norfolk S. hero The Lir Jet (Ire) (Prince of Lir {Ire}), and obliged in style. Claiming an immediate lead after a slick getaway, he was in command throughout and kept on powerfully under urging inside the final quarter mile to win going away by two lengths from Mitrosonfire (GB) (Lethal Force {Ire}), becoming the first winner for his Rathasker Stud-based freshman sire. The February-foaled bay becomes the fourth winner produced by a half-sister to three stakes performers and he is a half-brother to G3 Solario S. third Mr Wizard (GB) (Major Cadeaux {GB}) and a yearling colt by Territories (Ire). He shares his second dam Dayville (Dayjur), herself a winning half-sister to GI Yellow Ribbon S. heroine Spanish Fern (El Gran Senor), with G1 Gran Criterium victor and G1 St James's Palace S. third Hearts On Fire (GB) (Firebreak {GB}). Sales history: £10,000 Ylg '19 TASAYG. Lifetime Record: 2-1-0-0, $4,700.
