Weekend four-timer for Dynasty

16th Jul 2018

Perennial leading sire Dynasty, sire of recent G1 Vodacom Durban July runner up Made To Conquer, enjoyed a four-timer over the weekend, with his winners including a major feature race scorer in Zimbabwe.

Dynasty’s four-year-old son Heir Line gave his sire yet more big race success when victorious in the G3 Republic Day Cup at Borrowdale on Saturday. Ridden by Keagan De Melo, the Kirk Swanson trained gelding bested Simona to lift the 2018 Republic Day Cup by a length, with Bush Pilot and Master Switch back in third and fourth respectively.

Out of the Jet Master mare Kiss And Fly (and thus bred on the same Dynasty/Jet Master cross as champion Lady In Black),  Heir Line, now a four time winner, was the top lot sold  from the 2015 Val De Vie Yearling Sale when knocked down to John Freeman for R1 200 000.

Heir Line is not the first son of Dynasty to shine in Zimbabwe this season, with paternal half-brother Roman Discent having lifted the Castle Tankard earlier in the year.

He was one of four winners on the weekend for his sire, whose daughters Dynasty’s Blossom and Lady Of The House finished second and third, respectively, in Saturday’s Listed Highlands Stud Winter Oaks and Listed Highlands Stud Ladies Mile.

Other weekend winners for Dynasty this past weekend included Chinchilla, Detonation and Sovereign

Dynasty, who has won the Equus Outstanding Stallion title four times, could also be well represented at Greyville’s big race meeting at the end of July.


The former July winning Horse Of The Year has four offspring nominated for the G3 Elan Gold Cup, 3 runners entered in the G1 Champions Cup, and one daughter entered for the G1 Thekwini Stakes (a race won last year by Dynasty’s champion Lady In Black). He also has two daughters nominated for the G2 Gold Bracelet on the same day.
