Drakenstein Stud’s four time G1 winning Dynasty horse Futura has made a very pleasing start to his stud career, and Futura looks to have come up with yet another smart performer from his first crop in the form of Warrior.
The latter made it back to back wins when scoring impressively at Kenilworth on Wednesday for trainer Justin Snaith and jockey Richard Fourie.
An impressive, three and a half length winner of his maiden last time out, the Ridgemont Highlands bred Warrior was sent off 13-10 favourite for the eighth and final race at Kenilworth on Wednesday, with the promising colt facing nine rivals in Wednesday’s Next Race Meeting 22 February 2021 MR76 Handicap (1600m).
Under Richard Fourie, Warrior, a R1 200 000 buy from the 2019 Cape Premier Yearling Sale, was always travelling sweetly, and he powered clear to score a two and a half length win in Wednesday’s race. It was a smart effort from Warrior, with the three-year-old conceding runner up, and older rival, The Cambo, no less than 6.5kgs while taking his tally of wins to two from just five starts.
Futura also went on to enjoy further success at the Vaal the following day, when his Cheveley Stud bred daughter Future Lady broke her maiden while scoring over 1200m for Candice Dawson and Luke Ferraris.
The former Horse Of The Year, whose G2 Durban Golden Horseshoe winning son Nourbese looks set to continue his career overseas, has three lots on offer at both the Cape Yearling Sale and Cape Premier Yearling Sale.
