A Shadwell-bred daughter of Kahal out of Mentalite, Chennai Babe owned and trained by Champion Trainer Sean Tarry, won the Indigo Handicap (Non Black Type) at Greyville on Friday evening by half a length.
Little Blacknumber finished second and Alice Springs in third, whilst Gr1 winner Lauderdale finished four lengths off.
Drawn fourth and carrying 54kgs, Chennai Babe is a full sister to 10-time winner Constellation and a half-sister to the Michael Roberts trained Injaazaat. A winner in France, Mentalite by Alhaarth has produced six winners to date.
Chennai Babe sold for R100 000 at the 2013 National Yearling Sale consigned by Bush Hill Stud as agent, and she has earned over R300 000 to date for six wins and four places.
Kahal is currently lying 5th on the National Sires Log and on an equal winners to runners percentage of 33.3% as Dynasty in fourth position (stats as of 29/11/2015 nhra.co.za). He also registered another winner in Hong Kong on Sunday with Lovely Naughty taking home his third win.
Another Bush Hill-bred placed fourth recently in the Glendore Sprint (Non Black Type), with the ever consistent nine year old Bezrin gelding Tetelestai now registering almost a million in stakes earned over eight season, with 11 wins and 31 places to date.
Well done to all concerned.
