Menorah boosts King's Theatre's reputation

 

Having been described in last week's Racing Post by Richard Aston as the "probably the best available jumps sire in Britain and Ireland", King's Theatre's reputation was given a further boost in the opening Spinal Research Supreme Novices' Hurdle thanks to the success of his son Menorah.

 Bred by  Elizabeth Grant and  Anna Brislane, Menorah was sold as a foal for €48,000 at Tattersalls Ireland in November 2005, when bought by Kennycourt Stud.

Out of the Strong Gale mare Maid For Adventure, Menorah traces back, appropriately, to the family of Arkle.
