Quickfiremaiden winner double for Kodiac

A PAIR of second-crop daughters of Tally-Ho Stud resident Kodiac gave their sire a quickfire double on Monday when winning maiden races within five minutes of each other.

Worthington - trained by Richard Fahey for owner David Armstrong - kicked off the double when winning the 5f two-year-old maiden at Carlisle by two lengths.

She was bred by Mountarmstrong Stud out of the winning Mujtahid mare Idle Fancy, making her a half-sister to prolific sprint handicap winner Idle Power (by Common Grounds) and Crafty Fancy (by Intikhab), a useful dual 5f winner at two.

Highfield Farm bought Worthington for £45,000 from the DBS Premier Yearling Sales.

Kohala sealed the double when impressively landing the 5f two-year-old maiden at Redcar by five lengths.

Bred by Pat Todd, she is trained by David Barron for owner M Dalby and was purchased at the Goffs Open Yearling Sale for just €4,200.

Kohala is out of the Ridgewood Ben mare Annahala, making her a half-sister to winners Lady Orpen and Royal Becky.

Kodiac - a three-parts brother to leading sire Invincible Spirit by Danehill - stands at Tally-Ho Stud in County Westmeath at a fee of €6,500.

One of the standouts from his first-crop of two-year-olds last year, Listed Bosra Sham Fillies' Stakes winner Sweet Cecily, was a close third in Saturday's Listed Sandy Lane Stakes at Haydock.
