Lot 29 – All In The Mind x Master Of My Fate


Eugene Freeman’s Boland Stud will be offering a number of yearlings from outstanding international female lines at the 2d019 KZN Yearling Sale, which is set to take place at the beginning of July. One such prime example is the colt by red hot sire Master Of My Fate out of the very smart Var mare All In The Mind. The latter, bred on the same Var/Complete Warrior cross as 2009 Gr.1 Gold Medallion winner Villandry, was a useful performer in her own right, winning five times up to 1600m and earning nearly R500 000 in prize money.

However, All In The Mind’s real claim to fame lies in her impeccable breeding. Not only she is by one of South Africa’s most consistently successful sires in Var, but her dam Mind Over Matter is a half-sister to South African champion, and Gr.1 Gold Cup hero Milleverof and former record price yearling buy Mr Hawaii. In turn, Mind Over Matter (whose progeny included smart Gr.3 performer Richmond Park) was produced by the well related Sir Gaylord mare Mild Smoke –whose three-parts sister Mild Intrigue produced Irish Oaks winner Margarula (herself dam of Gr.1 Sydney Cup winner Grand Marshal).

Mind Over Matter’s third dam is Alabama Stakes winner Natashka, a daughter of champion Dedicate who was named US Broodmare Of The Year in 1981. Natashka’s five stakes winners included Gr.1 Joe McGrath Memorial Stakes winner Gregorian, and she is also granddam of Gr.1 Irish St Leger winner Dark Lomond and third dam of hugely influential US champion sire Elusive Quality. This is also the family of English classic winner Black Tarquin, Breeeders’ Cup Juvenile winner and champion Anees, and Japanese Oaks heroine Silk Prima Donna –a truly international family indeed!

This regally bred colt, who has been named Mind Master, was sired by the very exciting Jet Master stallion Master Of My Fate, currently one of the most exciting young sires standing in South Africa. From just two crops to race, Master Of My Fate has already been responsible for a number of high class performers including brilliant Gr.2 KRA Guineas winner Twist Of Fate, Kenyan champion Silverstone Air, Derby Trial star Gift For The Gap and the very exciting two-year-olds Basadi Faith and Master Of Illusion.
