IF the looks of these newly-turned Varsfontein-bred yearlings by Master Of My Fate are anything to go by, his future as a stallion looks assured!

Click here to view his yearlings


VARSFONTEIN’S young stallion Gimmethegreenlight bagged the freshman sire championship at the conclusion of a cracking first season which saw him sire 14 first crop winners. He joins Var and barn-mate Judpot as just one of three stallions to have sired both a first-crop Gr.1 and Gr.2 winner in his first season.
The only horse to have twice beaten the mighty Variety Club, he lacked a first crop stakes winner going into Gold Cup day, the final meeting of the 2015 season. He promptly set the record straight when Hack Green hacked up in the Gr.2 Umkhomazi Stakes and better still, Gunner followed up an hour later in the Gr.1 Premier’s Champion Stakes.
No wonder then that mare owners have been clamouring for his services and the ‘book full’ sign went up 24 hours after the Gold Cup day double.
The young stallion was quick out of the starting blocks at the start of the new racing season and is churning out the winners at a rate of knots. His prowess was underlined at the August 14 Scottsville meeting, where his progeny dominated both Million Rand sales races. He sired Million Mile winner Legend, as well as the first two past the post in the Million Sprint, where the proverbial piece of paper separated Hack Green and the gallant filly Green Pepper.
All three were bred at Varsfontein, Hack Green and Green Pepper under the stud’s banner, while Legend was bred by stud manager Carl and wife Amanda de Vos.


WHILE Gimmethegreenlight emerged as the leading local first season sire, an Australian-based son of More Than Ready is also off to a fine start in Australia and New Zealand, with eight first-crop winners to his name. We are of course referring to American-bred Pluck whose female line is as South African as boerewors and biltong.
Bred and raced by Barry Irwin’s Team Valor, Pluck’s finest moment came as a juvenile when he landed the Breeders Cup Juvenile Turf, which immediately threw the spotlight on his dam, the Varsfontein-bred Secret Heart.
By Fort Wood out of Secret Pact, she is a half-sister to homebred champion Promisefrommyheart (Elliodor) and Gr.1 winner Covenant (Western Winter). The former is of course the dam of our exciting young homebred stallion Master Of My Fate (Jet Master).
A permanent resident at Vinery Australia, Pluck stands alongside his shuttling sire.


THE 2016 Equus Awards function proved a memorable evening for Varsfontein, the farm taking home the hardware for champion three-year-old filly.
The stud was represented by not one, but two finalists in this fiercely contested category: Varsfontein-owned Bela-Bela (Dynasty) and farm-bred Juxtapose, a daughter of Judpot. Much to our delight, Bela-Bela got the nod and deservedly so, having completed the notable Gr.1 Woolavington 2000/Gr.2 Daisy Guineas, in addition to finishing third in the Gr.1 Paddock Stakes and sixth in the Gr.1 Vodacom Durban July.
The half-sister to Champion Rabya is one of six stakes winners produced by broodmare extraordinaire, Mystic Spring, who likewise was honoured with an Outstanding Achievement Award.


VARSFONTEIN-bred Yorker (Jet Master) returned to action following an absence of 805 days and showed he had lost none of his ability.
Making his English debut for the William Haggas stable, the now seven-year-old contested the Gr.3 Strensall Stakes at York on August 21. Last as they turned for home, he rallied strongly up the inside rail to finish second, a length and a half behind Godolphin’s Scottish.
The country’s Champion Older Horse had not raced since finishing third behind King Of Pain in the 2014 Gr.1 Rising Gold Challenge at Clairwood.
Bred by Carl and Amanda de Vos out of the Al Mufti mare Little Indian, the big bay holds an entry in the Gr1 QIPCO Champion Stakes.
Hats off to the connections for persevering when many would have called it a day!
