The Ralph Beckett-trained Kinross (3 c ex Ceilidh House by Selkirk) won Wednesday’s Hyde Stakes (Listed, 1m) at Kempton on Wednesday to provide his Juddmonte Farms-based sire Kingman (Invincible Spirit) with his 29th stakes winner.
Kinross finished fifth behind Kameko (Kitten’s Joy) in the Futurity Trophy (Gr 1, 1m) last November and was then sixth in the Guineas (Gr 1, 1m) at Newmarket on his seasonal reappearance and on Wednesday scored a three quarter length victory over the Roger Varian-trained favourite Khuzaam (Kitten’s Joy). Viva Serendipity (Invincible Spirit) finished another neck away in third.
Kinross is one of four winners out of the Listed winning Selkirk (Sharpen Up) mare Ceilidh House. His second dam is dual Listed winner Villa Carlotta (Rainbow Quest) while further back this is the family of dual Grade 2 winner Battle Of Hastings (Royal Applause).
His winning half-sister Skipinnish (Exceed And Excel) is catalogued as Lot 1349 at the forthcoming Tattersalls December Mare Sale from the draft of Kellsgrange Stud in foal to Kingman’s son Calyx.
Kingman’s 2021 fee has been set at £150,000 and his stakes winners are headed by two Group 1 winners in Persian King and Palace Pier while his Group 2 winning son Calyx is standing his first Australian season at Coolmore’s Hunter Valley farm for a fee of $17,600 (inc GST) this season.

Khuzaan looks to have Listed victory in the bag at @kemptonparkrace but ends up having to settle for second place for the second year running, as Kinross comes back to form for @RalphBeckett and @RKingscote
Great finish to the British Stallion Studs @BritishEBF Hyde Stakes! pic.twitter.com/BuiFIyEkas
