Drakenstein Stud’s popular resident sire, and former South African Horse Of The Year, Futura is set to have his first runner at Turffontein next Thursday.
Futura’s two-year-old daughter Future Fame is set to make her debut in a maiden juvenile plate for fillies, over 800m, this week for trainer Weiho Marwing.
Out of the National Assembly mare Pheasant Run, Future Fame was bred by the Syrilla Stud.
Her four-time G1 winning sire Futura made a considerable splash with his first yearlings and two-year-olds in 2019.
The son of Dynasty was responsible for a R1.2 million filly at the 2019 Cape Premier Yearling Sale, and Futura also made headlines at the 2019 Emperors Palace Ready To Run Sale.
Futura’s son Castle On The Hill was the top lot sold off this year’s Emperors Palace Ready To Run Sale, with the Ndoro Stud bred colt knocked down to EIBloodstock for R1 300 000.
From the same family as G1 winners Aslan and Angelina, Futura was South Africa’s Horse Of The Year in 2014-2015, when he was also named Equus Champion Older Male and Champion Middle Distance Horse.
One of the very best sons of four times Equus Outstanding Stallion Dynasty, Futura’s 9 wins netted him in excess of R4.3 million and included triumphs in all of the G1 L’Ormarins Queen’s Plate, G1 J&B Met and G1 Champions Cup (twice).
Coup De Grace, the first son of Tapit at stud in South Africa at Klawervlei, has had 2 juvenile runners for 2 places to date.
