Lot 216 – Rock Candy x Futura
Futura colt sports a stallion pedigree
Futura, South Africa’s Horse Of The Year of 2014-2015, has made a very pleasing start to his stud career. A four time Gr.1 winning son of leading South African stallion Dynasty, Futura’s first crop, now three, includes Gr.2 Durban Golden Horseshoe winner Nourbese, Gr.2 Zulu Kingdom Explorer Golden Slipper third Jasmine, stakes winning fillies Dindingwe and Sweet Future, and such promising sorts as Eliud, Fantastical, Pink Tourmaline, and Warrior.
Boland Stud As Agent will be offering a very well bred colt (Lot 216) by this exciting young stallion at the 2021 National Yearling Sale. This colt is out of the Candy Stripes mare Rock Candy, the dam of six winners from as many runners, including Gr.3 Godolphin Barb Stakes winner Punk Rocker and classy filly Taffety Tart, who ran third in both the Gr.1 Cape Fillies Guineas and Gr.2 Choice Carriers Championship.
A half-sister to Argentinian Gr.1 filly Glad Lady, Rock Candy (whose top-class sire Candy Stripes is a son of Blushing Groom) hails from the immediate family of Blushing Groom’s top class sprinter and sire son Mt Livermore. The latter, winner of the Gr.2 Carter Handicap and third in the Gr.1 Breeders’ Cup Sprint, sired nine millionaires with Mt Livermore’s star performers including Breeders’ Cup winning champions Eliza and Orientate, Canadian Horse Of The Year Peaks And Valleys, and champion sprinter Housebuster. Mt Livermore was produced by Gr.3 Falls City Handicap winner Flama Ardiente, also dam of Gr.1 Prix Jean Prat hero Magical Wonder. This is also the family of Gr.1 Jockey Club Gold Cup winner River Keen and successful sire Well Decorated.
