Exciting young stallion Master Of My Fate has made a eye catching start to his stud career, with his first foals arriving to rave reviews around the country.
However, few, if any, of Master Of My Fate’s first crop are better bred than this filly, who recently arrived at the Ambiance Stud.
She is out of the Northern Guest mare and stellar producer Majestic Guest, and is thus a three-parts sister to world class sprinter J J The Jet Plane. Both “JJ” and Master Of My Fate are sons of Horse Of The Year and seven times champion South African sire Jet Master.
J J The Jet Plane, who was purchased for a mere R70 000 at the 2006 National 2YO Sale, won 15 races in four different countries and earned three Equus Awards –Champion Sprinter in both 2008 and 2010, he was also named South Africa’s Equus Champion Older Male in 2010. Arguably his biggest win came when accounting for the outstanding international sprinters Rocket Man, Sacred Kingdom, Ortensia, Kingsgate Native and Lucky Nine in the 2010 G1 Hong Kong Sprint.
Other major sprint wins notched by the son of Jet Master included Dubai’s G1 Al Quoz Sprint and the South Africa G1 Gold Horse Casino Sprint (twice),
J J is now enjoying his well earned retirement at Balmoral in KZN, where he looks an absolute picture.
However, the much loved “JJ” was not the only high class performer out of Majestic Guest. The latter (who has since been retired by Dr Thomson) is also dam of G3 King’s Cup winner Jet Legend (a full brother to J J The Jet Plane), as well as the stakes placed fillies Guest Among Men (3rd Starling Stakes), and Majestic Jet (2nd Starling Stakes.
Majestic Guest, whose four wins included the Listed Ladies Mile, is also dam of the useful, stakes placed filly Pleasure Jet.
