Kerdos Lands First Group Success in Temple Stakes

Following his tremendous Listed win in the Beverley Bullet last September, we were thrilled to welcome Kerdos’ Group 2 winning debut in the Temple Stakes at Haydock on Saturday (25th May). Following in the footsteps of his sire, who took home the same title back in 2016, this occasion marked our third victory in this race with his owner, Alan Spence, who had back-to-back success with Profitable and Priceless. Incidentally, Priceless is the third dam of Kerdos, so a true family affair.


Travelling strongly from the break, Richard Kingscote was quick to settle him in a prominent position with a little bit of cover before the race opened-up with a furlong to go. Charging for home, much of the attention was still on front runners, but he was quick to swoop into contention down the centre of the track with an impressive turn of foot and outranked the field by half a length. With softer ground presenting no issues on the day, this four-year-old continues to prove himself as a very capable and exciting sprinter and we couldn’t be happier with this result for his owners, John Connolly and Alan Spence. We will now look ahead with our sights firmly on Royal Ascot, where he holds an entry in the Group 1 King Charles III Stakes.


A very well done to the Beechdown team for all their hard work at home as we celebrate our second Group winner this season and continue to prepare our string with some exciting entries ahead.
