A Masterful Start

New Sire Off The Mark - Master Of My Fate

Varsfontein Stud’s young stallion Master Of My Fate broke the ice just weeks after his first runner, when his goodlooking first crop son Twist Of Fate easily won the first race on the opening day of the L’Ormarins Queen’s Plate Festival Of Racing at Kenilworth on Friday.

In action – Master Of My Fate (Jet Master – Promisefrommyheart)

Trained by Joey Ramsden, the River Palace Racing Syndicate –owned Twist Of Fate skipped clear of his opposition inside the final 200m of the 1000m Maiden Juvenile Plate under replacement rider Donovan Dillon. The bang in-form Joey Ramsden also saddled the runner-up, Cash Call – a well related Team Valor bred son of Gimmethegreenlight.

The Favour Stud-bred Twist Of Fate is out of the twice winning Counter Action mare, Crescent Lily, a winner of the Listed Breeders Guineas at Fairview.

The winner, who races for Mauritian connections, looks well bought at R20 000 off the CTS March Yearling Sale.

A handsome son of seven-times deceased champion sire Jet Master, the R3 million Master Of My Fate was the top colt sold from the 2011 National Sale-

He was a winner of six of eight starts, from 1200m to 1800m, which included the Gr2 Premier Trophy and Gr2 Peninsula Handicap. He is one of two stakes winners produced by Elliodor’s Equus Champion Promisefrommyheart.

From the same family as Breeders’ Cup winning sire Pluck, Master Of My Fate has two lots on offer at the Cape Premier Yearling Sale on 20 and 21 January.
