Former Horse Of The Year and July winning champion Dynasty, who stands at Highlands Farms Stud, part of Ridgemont, was represented by his 11th individual G1 winner when daughter Lady Of The House saluted in Saturday’s G1 Woolavington 2000 at Greyville.
The blue blooded Lady Of The House, a R3.7 million buy from the 2015 Cape Premier Yearling Sale, made it win number three (from just nine outings) with a front running win in the R1 000 000 Woolavington. Well ridden by Piere Strydom, the Brett Crawford trained filly kept going gamely to hold off a challenge from G2 Daisy Fillies Guineas winner Gimme Six and score by a head.
It was a first black type win for Lady Of The House –herself the 45th stakes winner sired by Dynasty.
The same day, Dynasty’s R5.2million son Horizon ran third in the G1 Daily News 2000 to stamp himself among the leaders of his generation.
Bred by Highlands Farms, Lady Of The House is the first stakes winner produced by multiple champion and dual G1 winner Overarching.
She is part of an exceptional crop of 3yos representing Dynasty this season. Dynasty’s current three-year-old crop includes five individual graded winners, including Winter Series hope African Night Sky and the classic winning fillies Smiling Blue Eyes (G2 Wilgerbosdrift Gauteng Fillies Guineas) and Just Sensual (G1 World Sports Betting Cape Fillies Guineas).
Just Sensual looks a leading contender for Saturday’s G2 Tibouchina Stakes, while Dynasty champion Bela-Bela is a runner in Saturday’s G1 Rising Sun Gold Challenge.
Dynasty is the covering sire on two lots at the upcoming Mares, Weanlings & Fillies For Stud Select Sale, while he will also be represented by yearlings on both the Klawervlei Farm Sale and KZN Yearling Sale.
