Kameko To Stand For £25,000


Kameko | Coady

Kameko (Kitten's Joy-Sweeter Still {Ire}, by Rock Of Gibraltar {Ire}), who won this year's G1 2000 Guineas in race record time, will stand for £25,000 at Tweenhills Stud next year.

In addition to the Guineas, Kameko won the G1 Vertem Futurity Trophy at two and the G2 Joel S. on Sept. 25 against elders. He was fourth this summer in the G1 Epsom Derby, G1 Sussex S. and G1 Juddmonte International.

“It was hugely exciting to have Kameko arrive at Tweenhills last night and after a gruelling 40-hour journey from Kentucky; he bounced off the lorry and has been striding around the place this morning like he owns it,” said Tweenhills owner David Redvers. “I feel we have priced him extremely competitively this year and will also be offering a small amount of equity in the horse to breeders. Details are to be released later this week.”

Also available at Tweenhills in 2021 for £25,000 will be Australian sensation Zoustar (Aus), whose first Northern Hemisphere foals arrived this year.

“Zoustar continues to enhance his already heady reputation and it is a real coup for European breeders to have such an exceptional young sire standing here again in 2021,” said Redvers. “The reviews his first crop of Northern Hemisphere foals are receiving match our expectations and I'm really looking forward to seeing his first commercial offerings at the end of the month.”

Havana Gold (GB), whose biggest crop of over 140 yearlings goes into training next year, is available for £7,500, while G1 Sussex S. winner Lightning Spear (GB) will stand for £5,000.
