Boland Stud’s “Masterful colt” a National Sale standout

28th Mar 2018

Jet Master’s beautifully bred son Master Of My Fate, whose six wins from eight outings included both the Gr2 Premier Trophy and Gr2 Peninsula Handicap, has made an impressive start to his stud career.

Lot 357

Trained by Dennis Drier, the Varsfontein Stud bred Master Of My Fate, who himself never raced at two, currently ranks as South Africa’s Leading First Crop Sires with five winners to his name, including recent debut winner Master Keys, feature race contenders Twist Of Fate and Lucky Dancer, and the impressive Goliath Heron.

Boland Stud are pleased to offer a colt by this exciting young sire at the 2018 Emperors Palace National Yearling Sale.

Lot 357 is a bay son of Bermuda Sloop, with the latter in turn being a five time winning daughter of champion sire and emerging broodmare sire Captain Al. Captain AL daughters have already made their mark through such Gr1 winners as Gunner, Potent Power and Same Jurisdiction, and the well bred Bermuda Sloop looks sure to provide further glory to her now deceased sire.

To date, Captain Al mares have produced the winners of more than R3 million –and this sum will surely increase substantially in coming years.

Master Of My Fate

Herself a sister in blood to Gr1 Premier’s Champion Stakes winner Exhilaration (by Captain Al), Bermuda Sloop is from an exceptional South African family.

Among the high class members of this family as Gr1 Vodacom Durban July winner Power King, short lived Equus Champion Wendywood, and Gr1 Summer Cup hero Malteme.

The latter was sired by Rakeen –himself the grandsire of Master Of My Fate, which makes Lot 357 bred on very similar lines to the millionaire Malteme indeed.
