Kafwain purchased by Tommy Town


California-based Tommy Town Thoroughbreds has purchased Kafwain privately from Darley Stud and will move the stallion from Darley to Alfred Nuckols Jr.'s Hurstland Farm in Midway, Ky.

Nuckols announced the sale Thursday and said the 8-year-old Cherokee Run horse will stand for $6,500 in 2009.

Kafwain is the sire of two crops to race. Massive Drama, a Grade 3 winner who also is Grade 1-placed, is his leading runner so far. He also has gotten stakes winners Yonegwa, Kadira, Rasierra, and Hartfelt among his nine stakes performers. His progeny earnings stand at more than $2.2 million.

Kafwain is out of the stakes winner Swazi's Moment, by Moment of Hope.
