KZN Guineas Trial double for Dynasty

19th Nov 2017

Highlands Stud’s top sire Dynasty enjoyed a superb weekend, with his progeny impressing both in the sales ring and on the racetrack.
Dynasty supplied the top lot at Friday evening’s CTS Ready To Run Sale, where his unnamed son out of All Is Secret was sold to Alesh Naidoo for R1.1 million.

Lady In Black

The sales topping colt is a very close relative of Dynasty’s champion daughter Bela-Bela, whose seven wins, from just 14 starts, included the G1 Maine Chance Farms Paddock Stakes, G1 Jonsson Workwear Garden Province Stakes and G1 Woolavington 2000.

Another lot by Dynasty, a filly out of Hard Lady, fetched R750 000 at the Ready To Run Sale, while Dynasty had a total of five 2yos gross R3 050 000 –which made the former Horse Of The Year second leading sire by aggregate for the 2017 CTS Ready To Run Sale.

With his daughter Hashtagyolo landing the KZN Fillies Guineas Trial recently, sire of the moment Dynasty made it a Guineas Trial double for 2017 when his Cheveley Stud bred son Sir David Baird lifted the spoils convincingly in Saturday’s Listed KZN Guineas Trial this weekend.
Trained by Mike de Kock and ridden to victory by Gavin Lerena, Sir David Baird, now a winner of two of just four outings, stamped himself a legitimate classic contender with a 4.25 length win in Saturday’s 1600m contest.

Act Of War

The gelding was a R1 300 000 buy from the 2016 National Yearling Sale, where Sir David Baird was one of four Dynasty yearlings to fetch upwards of R1 000 000. Sir David Baird is likely to run next in the G1 Cape Guineas, won by Dynasty’s son Act Of War in 2014.

He is one of 51 stakes winners sired by Dynasty, who has an impressive four individual Equus Outstanding Stallion awards to his name.

Dynasty is also sire of the progressive Hong Kong based galloper Nassa, a good winner of the recent G3 SA SA Ladies’ Purse and third in Sunday’s G2 Bochik Jockey Cup, behind champion Werther,at Sha Tin.
Nassa now looks a legitimate contender for the Hong Kong Cup in December.

The former July winner is also responsible for last season’s Equus Champion 2YO Filly Lady In Black, a likely contender for the upcoming G1 WSB Cape Fillies Guineas (a race won last year by Dynasty’s champion daughter Just Sensual).
