Weekend treble for leading sire

12th Feb 2018

Highlands Stud’s four times Equus Outstanding Stallion Dynasty had another good weekend over the past few days.
The former Horse Of The Year had a treble of winners over the past weekend, with a pair of Dynasty sired three-year-olds, in particular, catching the eye.

Noble Secret

The Tara Laing trained Trees Of Green kicked the weekend off for Dynasty when running out a courageous winner over 1400m at Fairview.

Bred by the Gary Player Stud, Trees Of Green made it win number five with a half length win under Ryan Munger.
The entire has been the soul of consistency recently, having won or placed in all five of his last starts.

Dynasty was also responsible for two eye catching three-year-old winners on Saturday.
His daughter Dynasty’s Blossom made it two wins from her last three races when she outclassed some smart older rivals to win over 2000m at Kenilworth on Saturday.
(Dynasty’s Blossom’s 1.25 length win on Saturday came at the expense of another Dynasty filly in Baroness Mary, with yet another daughter of the sire, Qing, finishing fourth).

Bred by the Highlands Stud in partnership with Georgina Jaffee, Dynasty’s Blossom (who had been entered for the G1 Investec Cape Derby) has yet to run a bad race, having won or placed in all seven of her career outings.

The filly, who looks capable of bigger and better things, was a R4 500 000 purchase from the 2016 Cape Premier Yearling Sale.

Smiling Blue Eyes

Dynasty also looks to have a very smart 3yo son to his name in the form of Noble Secret. The latter, who was bred by Moutonshoek, made it two wins from only three outings when accounting for a smart field of three-year-olds in a 1600m handicap at the Vaal on Saturday. Noble Secret, who had won on debut by nine and a quarter lengths, simply hacked up by 2.75 lengths in Saturday’s contest, with the well bred Street Cry gelding Alshibaa comfortably held in second place.

Bred on the same Dynasty/Al Mufti cross as graded stakes winners Barrack Street and De Kock, Noble Secret (out of the Al Mufti mare Arabian Secret) was a R700 000 buy at the 2016 National Yearling Sale.

Dynasty looks on track for even greater heights this season –his champion daughter Just Sensual is one of 14 fillies and mares entered for the G3 Vasco Taverna Prix du Cap on February 24th, while another daughter, Skip A Beat, is nominated for the Jet Master Stakes –also due to be run at Kenilworth on that date.

Dynasty, whose daughter Smiling Blue Eyes won the 2017 G2 Wilgerbosdrift Gauteng Fillies Guineas, has two daughters nominated for the 208 Gauteng Fillies Guineas- including his unbeaten G3 Flamboyant Stakes winner Hashtagyolo.

The former Horse Of The Year could also be represented by three runners in the G2 Betting Gauteng Guineas –namely the above mentioned Noble Secret, as well as Greek Fire and Sir David Baird. Both the Gauteng and Fillies Guineas will be run at Turffontein on March 3rd.
