New 2YO Stakes-Winner for Kodiac

Tara Madgwick - Monday August 31

The Listed Ripon 2YO Stakes (6f) was won overnight by talented colt Bahrain Pride, whose sire Kodiac is enjoying another super successful season with his two year-olds.

The world record holder for individual juvenile winners in a year, Kodiac is powering along this year with 29 winners already headed by six stakes-winners highlighted by Group I winner Campanelle.

The latest to salute is Bahrain Pride, who made it two wins in as many starts when scoring a length and three-quarter win under James Doyle.


Trained by Simon and Ed Crisford, Bahrain Pride is entered for the Group I Middle Park Stakes.

Purchase for 300,000 guineas from the Tattersalls Craven Breeze Up Sale in June, he’s delivered a quick return for connections.

Bahrain Pride is the 61st stakes-winner for Tally Ho Stud’s Kodiac, who started his stud career at a fee of 5,000 euros ad now stands at 65,000 euros

He is the first winner for Life of Pi, an unraced half-sister by Sea the Stars to stakes-winner Temps au Temps and to the dam of Group II winner Armory.

Cambridge Stud will shuttle the first son of Kodiac to Australasia next spring with Group I winning sprinter Hello Youmzain sure to be an exciting addition to the New Zealand sire ranks.
