Who is Calyx you may ask… watch this video to see how good he was on the track..
This athletic colt was purchased for the Inglis Premier Sale for $180k from the champion nursery farm of Newhaven Park. Other horses to be bred off this farm include Odeum, Shout The Bar, Assertive Lass and Champagne Cath to name a few.
Sired by Calyx, he is a son of Kingman and a grandson of Invincible Spirit. He stands at the global organisation of Coolmore and excelled on the race track with injury cutting his race career short.
“Calyx always had that rare brilliance you only see in champions. His performances at Ascot at both 2 and 3 years were of the highest standard. He is a very similar type to his sire Kingman and with both Coolmore and Juddmonte supporting him at stud he will be given the best possible opportunity to succeed as a stallion.” – trainer, John Gosden
Calyx won his maiden at Newmarket on debut by 5 lengths, earning TDN Rising Star status. He was extremely impressive in the Gr.2 Coventry Stakes defeating triple Gr.1 winner Advertise. He showed explosive speed in the Gr.3 Commonwealth Cup Trial Stakes.
