Enghien treble for
late stallion Kahyasi

OUTSIDE the action at the Cheltenham Festival, it was a successful afternoon on Wednesday for the late Aga Khan stallion Kahyasi, who pulled off the notable feat of siring three winners on the Enghien card in France.

Three-year-old filly Kayagua, bred by P. Noue, got the ball rolling when sauntering home by 12 lengths in division two of the Prix d'Essai des Pouliches hurdle over 1m7f. She was followed by Pythagore, a seven-year-old gelding bred by his owner Jean-Pierre Colombu who obliged by four lengths in the Prix Solitaire, and Lukahya, a four-year-old gelding bred by L. Godet who won the Prix Master Bob by seven lengths.


1988 Derby hero Kahyasi was a successful sire under both codes duringhis long innings as an Aga Khan stallion, siring Group 1 winners such as Enzeli, Zainta and Vereva on the Flat and the likes of Kalahari King, Paddy's Return and Afsoun over jumps.

The son of Ile De Bourbon died at Haras de Bonneval in France in June 2008.
