Kameko 2yos start to be named

The first 2yos by our fastest ever QIPCO 2000 Guineas winner Kameko hit the track this year and some have already been given names.

The Kameko filly out of Qatar Racing’s Listed-placed Kodiac mare Natural has been named Longlife. She was purchased from Trickledown Stud for £62,000 by Peter and Ross Doyle. She is owned by Shaquille’s part-owner and -breeder Martin Hughes and is in training with Richard Hannon.

Another Kameko with Richard Hannon is colt Pakal, out of Raven’s Pass mare Lady McKell and thus a half-brother to three winners including the useful Hannon-trained sprinter Buridan. Pakal was also purchased by Peter and Ross Doyle at the Goffs UK Premier Yearling Sale, for £95,000. He will carry the Chindit colours of Michael Pescod.

William Haggas will also train a Kameko 2yo as he has filly Tsuki. She was bred by Childwickbury Stud Partnership out of winning Sea The Stars mare To The Moon, herself out of dual Stakes winner Ladys First. Tsuki is owned by Somerville Lodge Limited and, like all those Kamekos mentioned here, holds a sales race entry.

Ruffles Racing Club and trainer Jonathan Portman saw their 2yo filly Cry Fiction win on debut and finish runner-up in a Listed race in 2023. They’ll be hoping for more of the same from Kameko filly West Kirby. Bought as a foal and consigned as a yearling by Natton House Thoroughbreds, West Kirby is out of multiple-winning Foxwedge mare Melissa Jane.

Kameko filly Ridgeway Redwing cost trainer Denis Coakley 35,000gns at Tattersalls and is now owned by West Ilsey Racing. She was bred by Sun Bloodstock Sarl out of their Golden Horn mare Noble Heritage.

The 10 progeny of Kameko that cost six-figure sums have yet to be named. Likewise all those born, raised and grazed at Tweenhills.

If you are still to decide on a stallion for your mare this year, please give our Nominations Team a call on +44 (0)1452 700177.
