By the best young sire, probably in the World, in NO NAY NEVER, who just happens to be a son of Scat Daddy. He was the Champion first crop sire of 2018; his top performers include European Champion 3YO Sprinter Ten Sovereigns, three time Group 1 winner Alcohol Free, Group 2 winners Arizona, Mystery Power, Wichita, Zain Claudette, Land Force and many more!

In Kevin Blake's blog for At The Races. he says - "2015 has proven to be a truly remarkable year for new stallions. The likelihood of “one of the ones” emerging from any one crop is low enough, but against all the odds, the crop of sires that commenced their covering duties in Europe in 2015 has managed to produce two exceptional stallions in the shape of KINGMAN and NO NAY NEVER.

We bought this good looking son of the sire from the Tattersalls Ireland Yearling sale, which has provided us, previously, with Dee Stakes winner VIREN’S ARMY, Group 3 Prix Du Calvados winner GREAT PAGE and the Group 3 winner/Group 1 placed and dual Listed winner MARIE’S DIAMOND. His dam has a proven record too, as she’s already produced the 95 best RPR rated Westadora - she has now gone to the breeding sheds too.
Kayfast Warrior is a gorgeous looking horse, who, as a 3 year old, has given his owners a fantastic year, as you can see in the gallery. His 2021 race form figures have been superb; with a four-timer of wins on the bounce! 5 wins, three 2nd places and a 3rd from 11 starts, he has loved his racing this year.
He had a week schooling with Oliver Greenall and he has really taken to it and with his size and scope, we have decided that he will go to Donald McCain to begin a juvenile hurdling career. He joins our mighty Listed Scottish Triumph Hurdle winner and Grade 1 3rd placed FIVEANDTWENTY, who, also coming from the flat at 3, has been a sensation in her first season hurdling. She came from the flat, rated 79, as did Pentland Hills (with a rating of 73,) who is now a dual Grade 1 winner.
Kayfast Warrior, rated 82 on the flat, could be a very exciting juvenile hurdler. He loves soft ground, stays 1m 2f and has a bomb proof resolution.
He loves his racing and was full of beans the day after after yet another win...
Racing Update (27th December): A 5-time winner on the flat for Tom Dascombe this year, after schooling well, he is now a juvenile hurdler with Donald McCain. Today, he WON over hurdles at Wetherby and looks like he could be just as successful as he was on the flat! His race entries/declarations will show on this page.
