A bay gelding, foaled February 27th, 2021 and bought by Tom for €20,000. This gelding was bought at the Tattersalls Ireland September Yearling Sale 2022. He’s a half brother to two winners by Mastercraftsman (IRE) and No Nay Never (USA).
Calyx (GB) is a first season sire, standing at Coolmore Stud for €12,500. He’s by crack sire Kingman (GB) and was an unbeaten 2-year-old winning the Coventry Stakes at Royal Ascot and as a 3-year-old he won a Group 3 at Ascot and was 2nd in the Group 2 Sandy Lane Stakes at Haydock Park.
Tom’s comment “This Calyx colt really caught my eye. He was strong, powerful and had a real presence about him. Most importantly he had a wonderful temperament and showed himself brilliantly. We bought him from Glenvale Stud who year after year produce high class horses such as Minzaal and The Wow Signal, to name just a couple. Calyx bolted up on debut 10 days before he blitzed the field in the Coventry so fingers crossed this lad can do the same!”
