Bunker Bay (IRE)

2019 Bay gelding by Australia (GB) ex Alf Guineas (IRE) (Sea The Stars (IRE))

Owner KVT X

Bunker Bay ran twice as a two-year-old, both times over 1mile at Kempton in December. It was good to get two runs into him and he then headed for a short break. We will take our time with him this season, when he should make into a lovely mile and a half horse in the second half of the season. A slow burner, but one we hope will be well worth the wait.

We purchased Bunker Bay for 47,000 guineas at The Tattersalls December Yearling Sale. He is a stunning horse with a great action and a lot of quality. He is very much a three-year-old sort who we all loved at the sales, including William who was adamant this was ‘the one’ he wanted!

He is by Australia, a Derby-winning son of two Champions in Galileo (leading sire in the world and Derby winner) and Ouija Board (Oaks winner). Australia is now a highly successful Group 1 producing sire whose progeny include the likes of recent Breeders Cup winner Order Of Australia. The dam, Alf Guineas, is a daughter of another Champion in Sea The Stars (yet another Derby winner) and was a two time winner herself. Her maternal grandam, Sayyedati, was also a Champion so there’s some pretty reasonable blood in the mix here!

William Knight

William Knight is a Group winning trainer who is based in  Newmarket at the state-of-art yard at Rathmoy Stables. He trains our KVT Flag bearer Sir Busker, Dual Identity, Bunker Bay and a two-year-old colt by Churchill for KVT. 2021 was William's equal best in numbers of winners and his record prizemoney - we hope 2022 beat's both those!
