Kyllachy's Dim Sum lands Chairman's Sprint
CHEVELEY Park Stud resident Kyllachy secured a notable result on the world stage when his son Dim Sum took the scalp of outstanding Sacred Kingdom in Saturday's Group 1 Chairman's Sprint Prize at Sha Tin in Hong Kong.
The John Moore-trained Dim Sum landed the same event in 2009. He is one of a pair of Group 1 winners sired by Kyllachy, alongside Sole Power, who emulated his sire with a win in last year's Nunthorpe Stakes.
Kyllachy's other star progeny include Group 2 winners Arabian Gleam and Tariq. He stands at Cheveley Park this season at a fee of £8,000.
Dim Sum was bred by the late Leslie Caley's Tibthorpe Stud out of the winning In The Wings mare Heckle, who Caley bought for 16,000gns in foal to Kyllachy's sire Pivotal at the 2001 Tattersalls December breeding stock sale.
The 2002 Pivotal foal, a filly called Pivotal Role, justified the purchase by selling to Cheveley Park Stud as a foal for 75,000gns - though she failed to reach the places in three starts.
Heckle has redeemed herself with seven-year-old Dim Sum, who originally raced in Britain for Howard Johnson under the name Algol before being sold to Hong Kong.
Heckle also has a two-year-old colt by Cockney Rebel called Stringer Bell and a yearling filly by Medicean on the ground.
