Know It All retired and visits Kameko

Unfortunately, we must announce the retirement of Gr.1-placed, Gr.3-winning homebred Know It All. She will now move to Tweenhills to visit Kameko in his first season at stud.

Know It All picked up an injury after her return third in the Gr.3 Gladness Stakes at the Curragh last Saturday. The four-year-old won two of her nine starts, including the Gr.3 Derrinstown Stud Fillies Stakes over a mile at Leopardstown last July, and finished a close third in the Gr.1 Prix Rothschild in France.

Know It All was trained by Johnny Murtagh in Ireland for Qatar Racing. She is by Japanese stallion Lord Kanaloa and out of Common Knowledge, who remains part of the Qatar Racing broodmare band at Tweenhills aged 21. Common Knowledge produced a Roaring Lion filly in 2020 and is due to foal a Zoustar soon.

Know It All is yet another stellar name in Kameko’s first book of mares at stud. The book also includes dual Gr.1 winner Con Te Partiro, Gr.2 winner Now Or Never/Later, and numerous other Group winners like Kiyoshi and Purr Along. Kameko has been impressing breeders with his outstanding fertility: currently 90% of mares covered by him have been scanned in foal.
