Weekend treble for Dynasty | Cape Breeders Club

Weekend treble for Dynasty

3rd Sep 2018

Highlands Stud part of Ridgemont’s top sire Dynasty has made a great start to the 2018-2019 racing season and had yet another treble over the weekend to maintain the good form that his progeny have enjoyed this season thus far.


The former July winner and Horse Of The Year’s treble was kicked off when the Klawervlei Stud bred Double Rosie shed her maiden over 1200m at Kenilworth at Saturday for trainer Vaughan Marshall.

The well bred Double Rosie was one of two Dynasty sired fillies to score at Kenilworth over the weekend, with trainer Candice Bass-Robinson sending out Tattooed Rocker to pick up her first win over 1600m on Saturday. Making just her third career start, the 3yo Tattooed Rocker relished the 1600m trip and drew clear to post a convincing 1.25 length win.

Bred by Mike Jolly Racing, Tattooed Rocker was a R350 000 buy from the 2017 CTS Ready To Run Sale.

Dynasty’s third South African winner over the weekend came when the Duncan Howells trained Thanksgiving romped home, on his second official outing, to shed his maiden by four lengths over 1400m at Scottsville on Sunday.
Bred by the Gary Player Stud, 3yo Thanksgiving was a R900 000 buy from the 2017 National Yearling Sale.

The colt, who is out of the Al Mufti mare Torrential Rain, is bred on the same Dynasty/Al Mufti cross as graded stakes winners Barrack Street and De Kock.

Dynasty’s son Futura

Another son of four times Equus Outstanding Stallion Dynasty to make a big impression this weekend was the regally bred Sovereign Spirit. Despite needing considerably further than the 1200m of his debut, the Lammerskraal Stud bred colt (bred on the same Dynasty/Jet Master cross as Equus Champion Lady In Black) ran on strongly for second at Kenilworth on Saturday and he should go very close next time out.

Dynasty, whose son It’s My Turn recently won Equus, KZN, and Cape awards, is also the sire of the talented grey Stormy Eclipse, who was named the East Cape Champion Older Gelding for 2017-2018 at the East Cape awards evening which took place at Fairview on Saturday night.

Bred by the Ascot Stud, the durable Stormy Eclipse won four races last season including the Listed Memorial Mile and Fairview 1800, and also ran third in the Listed Algoa Cup.

To date, Stormy Eclipse has won nine times and has earnings of R873 625 to his name.
