Highlands Farm’s leading sire Dynasty was represented by yet another stakes winner when his daughter Bella Spumante won the Listed Milkwood Stakes on Fairview.
Bella Spumante (who was bred by The Alchemy) is the 37th stakes winner for her sire, whose daughter Bela-Bela recently won both the G1 Woolavington 2000 and G2 Daisy Fillies Guineas.
Trained by Alan Greeff, Bella Spumante (a R250 000 buy from 2013 Emperors Palace Ready To Run Sale) has now won or placed in eight of her 14 outings following her win in Friday’s R150 000 contest, and she should not stop here!
Bella Spumante is out of the winning Argosy mare Spumante, whose three other winners include Listed Somerset 1200 winner Cool Zone.
Her sire Dynasty, a former Horse Of The Year who has sired 3 sons who have become Horse Of The Year, looks to have a strong hand in the 2016 G1 Vodacom Durban July (a race Dynasty won in scintillating fashion back in 2003.
Currently, Dynasty’s daughter Bela-Bela and sons It’s My Turn and Solid Speed all among the fancies for the R4 250 000 race.
Dynasty, who is enjoying another superb season, with his runners including no fewer than11 stakes winners in 2015-2016, has already enjoyed success in the July as a sire-with his son Legislate (now standing at Drakenstein Stud) having landed the Greyville showpiece race back in 2014.
