Irish Flame has settled into his new career at Bush Hill Stud with ease. Irish Flame was himself South African Horse Of The Year at the end of his 3 year old career, his sire, Dynasty, was South African Horse of the Year and his dam sire was South African Horse of the year.
Irish Flame was a dual Gr 1 winner in South Africa winning both the Daily News and the S.A. Derby and 2nd in the Durban July.
Sarah Whitelaw reports: "Horse of the Year Dynasty is a true sire sensation – both in the sales ring and on the track. Yearlings by the legendary champion dominated the 2013 yearling sales.
At the 2013 Emperors Palace National Yearling Sale, Dynasty was not only responsible for the R3.6m sales topping colt, but sired three of the top five lots.
"Already sire of a South African Horse of the Year in Irish Flame, Dynasty’s superb daughter Beach Beauty recently named KZN’s Horse of the Year for the 2013 racing season.
Dynasty already has his Horse of the Year son Irish Flame at stud in KZN and rumour has it that the allure of stud paddocks will beckon his other handsome star Jackson in the near future. No doubt this list will continue to grow over the years!"
Warwick Render of Bush Hill Stud adds: "All in all the above is just one of the many reasons there has been such interest in Irish Flame from so many astute breeders. He was a great racehorse and Horse Of The Year a title previously held by his father and the mighty Jet Master, he is a cracking good looking horse and is available at a heavily subsidised rate. Don’t miss out, give us a call!"
