Kafwain to Stand at Tommy Town

Son of Cherokee Run to relocate to California

Kafwain, a multiple grade II winner in California, will stand in 2010 at Tom and Debi Stull’s Tommy Town Thoroughbreds near Santa Ynez, Calif. His fee will be $5,000. Kafwain, who won the Norfolk (gr. II) and San Vicente (gr. II) Stakes at Santa Anita and the Best Pal Stakes (gr. III) at Del Mar, stood the 2009 breeding season at Alfred Nuckols Jr.’s Hurstland Farm near Midway, Ky.

Kafwain, whose oldest runners are 3-year-olds, has sired 13 stakes horses and the earners of nearly $3.8 million. His eight stakes winners included graded winners Don’t Forget Gil, Massive Drama, and The Pamplemousse.

Don’t Forget Gil and The Pamplemousse are graded winners this year. Don’t Forget Gil won the Florida Oaks (gr. III), and The Pamplemousse captured the Sham (gr. III) and San Rafael (gr. III) Stakes.

Kawain (Cherokee Run--Swazi’s Moment, by Moment of Hope) is represented by 79 2-year-olds this year.
