Kamsin to stand with his sire at Gestüt Karlshof

DEUTSCHES Derby hero Kamsin has returned to his breeders Gestüt Karlshof near Frankfurt in Germany, to take up stud duties next year alongside his sire, Samum.

Kamsin established himself as the leading German-trained three-year-old of 2008 with victories in three Group 1 races - the Deutsches Derby, Rheinland-Pokal and Grosser Preis von Baden.

In the Grosser Preis von Baden he sluiced home on soft ground to beat a high-class field that included Adlerflug, It's Gino and Lucarno.

Last year at four, the Peter Schiergen-trained horse landed the Group 2 Gerling-Preis.

Kamsin is out of Group 3 winner Kapitol and hails fromthe important German 'K' family of stakes winners Kaiserstadt, Klassiker and Kamsin's great-grandsire, Konigsstuhl.

Kamsin will stand at an introductory fee of €5,000, while Samum will stand at €15,000, down from €25,000 this year.
