Kyllachy son Dim Sum just fails at Sha Tin
DIM SUM, the ex-British son of Kyllachy, was just denied by champion sprinter Sacred Kingdom (Encosta De Lago) in the Group 1 Centenary Spring Cup on at Sha Tin Sunday.
The runner-up won three times in England under the name Algol when trained by Howard Johnson as a juvenile - latterly in a nursery handicap off an official mark of 83 - but was then sold to continue his racing career in Hong Kong. The gelding has now earned the equivalent of £473,290 in prize-money.
In February 2009 Dim Sum landed the Group 1 Chairman's Sprint Prize for trainer John Moore to become Kyllachy's first Group 1 winner, a feat matched by last year's King's Stand winner Sole Power at Royal Ascot.
Kyllachy stands at Cheveley Park Stud for £8,000 this year.
