Kinross continues his rich vein of form

Less than a month after his success in the  Gr.2 City Of York Stakes Kinross (Kingman) won the Gr.2 Park Stakes at Doncaster on Sunday for owner Marc Chan and trainer Ralph Beckett.

Taken from the European Bloodstock News, 12th September 2022:

Tracking the early leader Al Suhail, Frankie Dettori manoeuvred his mount to the inside of the leader passing the two-furlong marker and soon went clear. New Energy came with a strong run to take second inside the final furlong, but could get no closer than the length margin at the line. Al Suhail finished a length and three quarters further back in third.

Kinross was pitched straight into Gr.1 company, finishing fifth in the 2019 Gr.1 Futurity Trophy, having broken his maiden on debut at Newmarket a month earlier. Sixth in the following year’s Gr.1 2,000 Guineas, he held his own in Group company for the remainder of his Classic campaign. The winner of both the Gr.3 John of Gaunt Stakes and Gr.2 Lennox Stakes as a four-year-old, he finished placed in his defence of those crowns this season, though was a ready winner of the Gr.2 City of York Stakes on his most recent start.

Bred by Julian Richmond-Watson’s Lawn Stud, he is a half-brother to three winners, out of the Listed Gillies Stakes winner Ceilidh House (Selkirk), a half-sister to the dam of Gr.3 Solario Stakes winner and Gr.1 Poule d’Essai des Poulains runner-up First Selection.
