Kenenda capped off a big week for her sire Not A Single Doubt and became the 11th individual Inglis graduate to win a G1 this year when successful in today’s Coolmore Legacy Stakes at Randwick.
Bred by Arrowfield Pastoral, Kenedna was having her 16th consecutive start at Stakes level – which had netted nine minor placings – and thoroughly deserved her G1 breakthrough.
The win came as no surprise to co-trainer Ciaron Maher.
“She was the fresh horse on the scene, she’s a really consistent mare and I’m so glad for her owners that she got this win today,’’ Maher said.
“She came to us in great order, it’s been a great job from my team to keep her going and get her winning a Group 1 race. This is what it’s all about.’’
Kenedna became the 10th individual G1 winner for Not A Single Doubt, who finished fourth on the leading sires list at this week’s Australian Easter Yearling Sale, averaging $528,333 from 15 progeny sold.
Kenedna was an $80,000 Melbourne Premier Yearling Sale buy for Darren Weir, John Foote and MDR Bloodstock, from the Arrowfield Stud draft.
