Master Of My Fate relatives impress at Scottsville

20th Sep 2018

Varsfontein Stud’s exciting young stallion Master Of My Fate hails from one of the strongest families in the South African stud book and two of his close relatives caught the eye at Scottsville on Wednesday.

Twist Of Fate

Brilliant filly Hashtagyolo, whose winning Jallad sired dam My Guiding Star is a half-sister to Master Of My Fate, made a pleasing return to the track when winning a barrier trial over 1000m. Trained, like her sire Dynasty, by Dean Kannemeyer, the talented four-year-old was making her first racetrack appearance since she romped to a two length win in the G3 Flamboyant Stakes back in December 2017.

Unbeaten in three official outings, four-year-old Hashtagyolo missed most of her sophomore campaign after contracting a virus.


Master Of My Fate’s Listed Spook Express Handicap winning half-sister Justthewayyouare is, like her half-brother, really making her presence felt at stud. Not only is the Fort Wood mare dam of multiple G3 winner Captain Splendid, Justthewayyouare is also dam of mega-promising 3yo Duke Of Spin. The latter, a colt from the first South African crop of Duke Of Marmalade, made it two wins from three official races when recording a convincing two and a quarter length score over 1950m on Wednesday.

The Varsfontein Stud bred Duke Of Spin was a R1 400 000 buy from the 2017 National Yearling Sale.

Justthewayyouare and Master Of My Fate are both out of the Elliodor sired Equus Champion Promisefrommyheart –whose six wins included both the G1 Triple Tiara 1600 and G1 SA Fillies Guineas.

This is also the family of Tuesday’s impressive debut winner Gimme London.

Master Of My Fate, South Africa’s Leading First Crop Sire by winners in 2017-2018, has some very smart sorts representing him this season including G1 performers Goliath Heron and Twist Of Fate and the highly rated filly In The Stars.

Winner of both the G2 Premier Trophy and G2 Peninsula Handicap from just eight outings, Master Of My Fate has three lots on offer at the 2018 Johannesburg Ready To Run Sale.
