Congratulations to Andrew and Jane Black on the stunning success of Arthur Kitt in the Chesham Stakes at Royal Ascot.

Arthur (2016 by Camelot) had a hard start in life, being resuscitated numerous times during a difficult birth that claimed the life of his dam, Royal Ascot winner, Ceiling Kitty.

Arthur was the final foal out of Kitty and is preceded by Black Type winner Eartha KittĀ  (in foal to Frankel) and 2yo winner Formidable Kitt.

Hopefully, in time, Arthur might be responsible for keeping his dam’s name alive in the pedigree of numerous descendants.
