Calyx Conformation

First foal for top sprinter Calyx

Calyx, the fastest son of Kingman, sired his first foal at Coolmore Stud on Monday night when Listed winner We Are Ninety produced a quality filly. Coolmore manager Eddie Fitzpatrick described the foal as “A lovely dark bay with size and strength. She has a lovely head and is very correct too. Calyx is a very exciting stallion and he’s off to a good start.”

We Are Ninety won 3 races including the Fillies Trial Stakes-L. at Newbury for owners Mrs Evie Stockwell and her sister Lady Mimi Manton. She has a top-class pedigree too as her dam is a full-sister to the Gr.1-winning 2YOs Listen (won Fillies’ Mile-Gr.1, dam of Japanese Gr.2 winner Touching Speech) and Sequoyah (won Moyglare Stud Stakes-Gr.1, dam of the outstanding miler Henrythenavigator).

A brilliant winner of the Coventry Stakes-Gr.2 at two years, Calyx was also a highly impressive winner of the Commonwealth Cup Trial-Gr.3 at three. He is great value this year at a fee of €16,000.
