Boland Stud - Lot 247

Dare to Embrace Greatness – Unveiling the Future of Racing Triumph!

A symphony of greatness echoes through the annals of Boland Stud, where racing champions are born to captivate the world. Today, we stand before you, unveiling a prodigious masterpiece that embodies the very essence of racing excellence – Lot 247, a regal colt born of the esteemed Lorraine and the legendary Futura. Futura, a former Horse Of The Year, has weaved his way into the hearts of racing enthusiasts since his transition to stud in 2016. His offspring have proven to be nothing short of spectacular, gracing the track with seven magnificent stakes winners. Among them, Nourbese, Pink Tourmaline, Vihaan’s Pie, and Warrior shine like beacons, illuminating the path of greatness that lies ahead.

But Futura’s legacy does not rest merely on his initial triumphs. With subsequent crops revealing a flood of exceptional stakes winners, including the awe-inspiring Future Pearl, who claimed triumphant victories in the 2023 Gr.3 World Sports Gold Bowl and 2023 Gr.3 DStv Gold Vase, Futura stands tall as a sire with an impressive 9% stakes winners to foals ratio. An astounding feat in an era where 5% is considered above average, this remarkable statistic foretells of an illustrious future for this four-time Gr.1 winning stallion. Now, a rare opportunity presents itself as Boland Stud, the purveyor of equine excellence, offers a captivating colt by Futura at the esteemed 2023 August Two Year Old Sale. The colt in question is a direct descendant of the illustrious racemare and influential South African broodmare, Party Time. Possessing the blood of greatness coursing through his veins, he is a three-parts brother to House Of Lorraine, a Dynasty-sired five-time winner. House Of Lorraine’s accolades extend to being the dam of Gr.2 Pospack SA Fillies Nursery/Listed Ruffian Stakes victor, Springs Of Carmel. Additionally, this colt shares a three-parts sibling bond with multiple winner Sabastian, while his dam, Lorraine, emerges as a half-sister to the illustrious, stakes-placed Front Page.

Delving deeper into his lineage, we uncover a granddam that shone with five victories, including the Gr.3 (now Gr.2) Southern Cross Stakes. A daughter of the eminent sire and outstanding broodmare sire, Dancing Champ, she is closely related to the Dancing Champ-sired Gr.2 SA Oaks champion, Lambarina, as well as the dam of the esteemed G1 winner, Morisco. This is the family of the Gr.1 Golden Slipper victor, Chestnuts N Pearls, whose lineage echoes that of the colt on sale, both sired by Fort Wood line stallions. The prestige of this family extends across the globe, with descendants of Party Time excelling both in South Africa and overseas. Horses like July-winning champion Trademark, UAE Oaks victor Imperial Ice, US graded stakes winner Consumer Credit, and South African champions Let’s Rock’N Roll and In The Fast Lane – all proudly bear the stamp of Party Time’s greatness. Furthermore, the lineage of the promising young sire, Real Gone Kid, traces back to this illustrious matriarch. The brilliance of Lorraine’s sire, Doowaley, echoes through generations, heralding his triumphs as a broodmare sire and the damsire of the remarkable galloper Trip Of Fortune. Celebrated for his victories in the Gr.1 H F Oppenheimer Horse Chestnut Stakes, Gr.2 Independent On Saturday Drill Hall Stakes, Gr.2 World Sports Betting Green Point Stakes, and Gr.3 Hollywoodbets Matchem Stakes during the 2022-2023 South African season, Trip Of Fortune epitomizes the pinnacle of equine excellence.
