Big weekend for Dynasty

25th Jun 2018

Highlands Stud part of Ridgemont’s outstanding sire Dynasty enjoyed yet another memorable weekend this past week.
Dynasty, whose sons had previously won both the G1 Investec Cape Derby and East Cape Derby in 2017-2018, was responsible for a third local Derby winner this season when his gallant five-year-old son It’s My Turn captured the G3 Track And Ball Derby at Scottsville on Saturday.

It’s My Turn

The 2018 Track And Ball Derby proved a double triumph for Dynasty, who is not only sire of It’s My Turn but also the Derby third place getter American Landing.

Winner of the G1 Investec Cape Derby, It’s My Turn made it win number three and pushed his earnings to R1 707 525 with his facile two and a quarter length win in Saturday’s R300 000 feature over 2017 Derby winner Mr Winsome, with the winner’s paternal half-brother, and favourite, American Landing, another neck away in third.

Bred by Willem Engelbrecht Jr, the Dean Kannemeyer trained It’s My Turn has now won or placed in seven graded races.

Out of the Jallad mare Jallad’s Queen, the gelded It’s My Turn is bred on the same Dynasty/Jallad cross as fellow G1 winners Eyes Wide Open and Liege, as well as unbeaten star filly Hashtagyolo.

It’s My Turn was one of three South African winners for four times Equus Outstanding Stallion Dynasty over the weekend.

His two-year-old daughter Storm Destiny made a smart winning debut for trainer Mike de Kock when victorious over 1450m on Sunday, while Dynasty gelding Sabastian made it a Turffontein double for Dynasty on Sunday when picking up his second career victory for trainer Fabian Habib.

Dynasty, broodmare sire of impressive recent debut winner Charles, looks to have a strong hand in the 2018 Vodacom Durban July, with the 2003 July winner responsible for, among others, ruling favourite African Night Sky.
