Four times Equus Outstanding Stallion Dynasty has been in devastating form this week, with the former Horse Of The Year responsible for four winners- over the past two days!
With Dynasty runners Bunker Hunt and Fortune Flies scoring at Kenilworth on Wednesday, the champion then doubled up when his Wonderous Climber and Sovereign Reign scored at the Vaal a day later.
Bred by Highlands, the regally bred four-year-old Wonderous Climber made it back to back wins for trainer Sean Tarry and rider Lyle Hewitson when he romped home to a 3.5 length win, as the 12-10 tote favourite, over 2400m on Thursday.
The Dynasty gelding, who has now won or placed in seven races, was a R1 000 000 buy from the 2016 Cape Premier Yearling Sale.
Wonderous Climber’s paternal half-brother Sovereign Reign then added to Dynasty’s tally when he picked up his eighth career victory when successful over 1450m on Thursday. The durable seven-year-old, who is trained by David Nieuwenhuizen, impressed when taking the Vaal’s final race by just over a length and a quarter. Sovereign Reign, who was bred by Al Adaayit, has now earned over R500 000 in stakes.
The sire of 60 stakes winners, and counting, Dynasty looks to have a strong hand in Saturday week’s G1 Cape Guineas and G1 WSB Cape Fillies Guineas respectively.
Dynasty, whose other potential star 3yos include Belgarion, Thanksgiving, and Bunker Hunt, is represented in the Cape Guineas by his progressive son Majestic Mozart, while unbeaten Dynasty filly Front And Centre looks a massive contender for the Fillies Guineas. (Front And Centre is one of two fillies set to represent Dynasty in the Cape Fillies Guineas with the promising Golden Chance being another).
The champion has already previously tasted success in both the Cape Guineas, with his son Act Of War, and Cape Fillies Guineas –with his champion daughter Just Sensual.
One of South Africa’s truly elite sires, Dynasty has 11 lots on the 2019 Cape Premier Yearling Sale.
