The first to highlight Kingman’s excellence as a sire was his spectacular son Calyx. A highly impressive 5-length debut winner at Newmarket, Calyx reappeared ten days later in the Gr.2 Coventry Stakes. Despite having to race on the apparently slower part of the course from his high draw, he burst well clear of his group and won well from Advertise. Calyx was similarly impressive on his return to action at three in the Gr.3 Commonwealth Cup Trial, where once again he displayed an explosive turn of foot. The Gr.1 Commonwealth Cup appeared to be at Calyx’s mercy but he suffered a pastern injury when second to Hello Youmzain in the Gr.2 Sandy Lane Stakes.

Calyx is showing distinct promise with GALILEO mares. Four of their first 5 starters have won, including Gr.2 winner Persian Dreamer, Gr.1 Dewhurst-placed Eben Shaddad and the well-regarded Golden Strike. Kingman has 8 SWs, headed by Gr.1 2YO winner Commissioning and Gr.2 winner Serve The King. FRANKEL daughters have started brightly with Kingman producing Gr.3 Jersey Stakes winner Noble Truth. Kingman’s 23 foals out of MONTJEU mares feature French Gr.1 winner Feed The Flame, American Gr.2 winner Public Sector and Irish Gr.3 winner Mashhoor. Mares by IN THE WINGS’s sons SOLDIER HOLLOW and SINGSPIEL have Group winners by Kingman, including Japanese Gr.1 winner Schnell Meister.

Kingman sired the Gr.2 winner Noble Style and Gr.1-placed Roseman from daughters of PIVOTAL.

GREEN DESERT is going to be back in the fourth generation of Calyx’s progeny, and he already has the Gr.2 winner Classic Flower inbred 4x4. Kingman’s Gr.2 winners Fearless King and Technical Analysis and Gr.3 winners Ready To Venture and Chachnak are inbred 3x4 to GREEN DESERT. The smart American filly Technical Analysis has a dam by SEA THE STARS, whose daughters have 16% SWs with Kingman. Mares by sons of OASIS DREAM, such as SHOWCASING and APPROVE, create 4x4 inbreeding to Green Desert and to Kingman’s 2nd dam Hope, and Calyx already has the promising Purple Lily with that inbreeding.

Kingman’s classic-winning son Persian King has a dam by DYLAN THOMAS and he also has GSWs out of mares by DANSILI (3), CHAMPS ELYSEES (2), DANEHILL DANCER, FASTNET ROCK, DANROAD and EXCEED AND EXCEL. Calyx can therefore be expected to do well with mares by Danehill’s many stallion sons.

Kingman already has a Gr.3 winner out of a mare by Royal Applause’s son ACCLAMATION.

The two lines of MR PROSPECTOR in Calyx’s pedigree will be back in the fifth and sixth generations of his progeny’s pedigree, so there is no obstacle to adding more of the MR PROSPECTOR blood which has done so well with Calyx’s grandsire Invincible Spirit.

Kingman’s outstanding miler Palace Pier has a dam by NAYEF. Kingman already has a Gr.2 winner from a KING’S BEST mare, while the smart Nostrum is from a daughter of DUBAI DESTINATION. Kingman also has Group winners out of mares by SMART STRIKE and SPEIGHTSTOWN.

Invincible Spirit has 13% SWs out of MACHIAVELLIAN mares and Kingman has sired Gr.1 winner Domestic Spending from a mare by Machiavellian’s son STREET CRY. Invincible Spirit has the Gr.1 winner Nazeef and the Gr.2 2yo winner Shartash out of DUBAWI mares, while Kingman has Gr.2 winners with dams by DUBAWI and MAKFI.

Kingman has a Gr.2 winner and a Listed winner out of mares by sons of STORM CAT and sired the Gr.1 Prix de Moulin winner Sauterne from a grand-daughter of GIANT’S CAUSEWAY. GIANT’S CAUSEWAY also sired the second dam of Kingman’s classic-winning son Persian King. Calyx has already sired a 2YO Gr.2 winner with a 2nd dam by MUJADIL, a son of STORM BIRD.

Kingman has numerous black-type winners with two lines of Mill Reef.

Kingman’s Gr.1 winner Kinross and his Gr.1-placed sons King of Comedy and Epictetus are all out of SELKIRK mares.
