Juddmonte Homebred Continues Kameko Momentum

Kameko | Tweenhills


All the signs are that Tweenhills Farm's first-crop sire Kameko is taking off and the son of Kitten's Joy had his fourth winner in under a fortnight on Monday as Juddmonte's homebred filly Ardeur (GB) dominated her six-furlong maiden at Pontefract.

Sent off the 30-100 favourite having finished fourth in a well-contested novice at York last month, the Ralph Beckett-trained daughter of the G2 Duchess of Cambridge S. third Chaleur (GB) (Dansili {GB}) was quickly in control at the head of affairs under Rossa Ryan.

Asked to stretch turning for home, the relative of the operation's sire Bated Breath (GB) by Chaleur's sire Dansili responded willingly to record a six-length success from Lady Luzon (Ire) (Pinatubo {Ire}).

The winner is the first foal out of the G2 Duchess of Cambridge S.-placed dam, who is a full-sister to the G3 Ballysax S.-placed Dalvey (GB) and a half to the G2 Linlithgow S. scorer Old Flame (GB) (Invincible Spirit {Ire}). She is a granddaughter of Didina (GB) (Nashwan), who captured the GII Dahlia H. and was third in the GI Gamely H., and is the second dam of the operation's sires Bated Breath (GB) also by Dansili and Cityscape (GB) (Selkirk). Also connected to Invincible Spirit's G2 Gimcrack S.-winning sire Ajaya (GB) and the G1 St Leger hero Logician (GB) (Frankel {GB}), Chaleur's yearling filly is by Kingman (GB).
