Palace Episode wins Racing Post Trophy Doncaster

Palace Episode: the Racing Post Trophy winner descends from Kazadancoa


Runnymede matriarch Kazadancoa deadat 33

KAZADANCOA, a foundation mare at Catesby Clay's Runnymede Farm, has died aged 33. The daughter of Green Dancer and Khazaeen, by Charlottesville, bred 13 foals and seven winners.

Bred in France by Jean-Marc Valerio, Kazadancoa produced Graded stakes winners Jacodra, Jacodra's Devil and Changing Ways, along with stakes-placed Captain Arthur.

Her further descendants include RacingPost Trophy winner Palace Episode and Laughing Lashes, last year's Debutante Stakes winner and Moyglare Stud Stakes runner-up. US Grade 2 winners Pays To Dream (out of Changing Ways), More Royal and Tejano Run also descend from Kazadancoa.

Runnymede general manager Martin O'Dowd said: "I have lived and worked with her for my 25 years at Runnymede and while she was our foundation mare and a true matriarch, she was also much more than that to all of us.

"Wehad so much respect for her, not just as a producer but also as a personality. She was an extremely intelligent lady who did not suffer fools and at times exhibited a distinctive sense of humour."
