Khajaaly is a thoroughly game campaigner, who has already won 8 races and over £35,000 in prize-money. Now nine years old, he hasn't tired of racing, and won two races in 2015, a Class 3 handicap at Southwell, and again at Catterick in September, confirming that we can have some serious fun with him on turf.
Before we bought him he had always been seen as just an all weather horse, because despite a great winning record, he had never won on turf, but we were sure we could take advantage of his much lower handicap mark on grass.
Sure enough, he didn't disappoint us, and our trainer was quickly able to assess what conditions and tactics would be right for him. After a couple of creditable placed runs on grass, Franny Norton rode a perfectly timed race, at Catterick to earn him his first ever turf success.
He will win more races for us, and is currently enjoying his summer break.
