There are exciting times ahead for Drakenstein Stud’s Met 2020 Equus Champion One World, whose first foals are set to arrive later this year.

The fertile son of Captain Al covered an exceptional book of 118 mares during his first season at stud in 2020. They included high-class race mares and proven producers notably many who had produced stakes winners by One World’s illustrious sire Captain Al, including last Saturday’s G1 Classic winner Malmoos who is an own brother to stakes winner Captain Splendid.

Also among his first mates were 39 stakes mares including the G1 winners; Ash Cloud, Bambina Stripes and Mighty High, graded stakes winners Bichette, Candy Singer, Goodtime Gal, Nordic Breeze, Rose In Bloom, Royal Pleasure, Star Express, Sylvan On Fire, Winter Burst, Witchcraft, and East Cape champion Madame Speaker.

One World’s stellar first book also included; Thin Red Line Gr3 dam of 2021 Gr1 Cape Derby winner Linebacker, Elisium (dam of G1 Cape Guineas winner Russian Rock), Diva’s Daughter (dam of Captain Al’s G1 winning daughter Miss Florida), Fiesta Queen (dam of the graded stakes winning pair of Cousin Liz (by Captain Al) and Gimme One Night), Secret Risk (the stakes winning dam of Captain Al’s G1 winning son Undercover Agent), and Sing Dixie Sing (dam of Dingaans/Hong Kong Classic Cup winner Singapore Sling).

His book also included daughters of numerous Gr1 winners and sisters to Gr1 winners and champions like Alice Springs the 4 time winning half-sister to US Gr1 winner Oleksandra, Bavaria the half-sister to Triple Crown winner Abashiri, Brightnumberfour the stakes placed own-sister to Gr1 winning sprinter Noble Heir, Field Of Light winning own sister to triple Gr1 winner Jackson, Fly To The Moon a daughter of Gr1 Epsom Oaks runner-up Royal Balerina, Fortune Flies the Gr3 second placed 3 parts sister to Gr1 winner Front And Centre, Lady Seymour half-sister to champion Historic Lady, Marquesa Naranja half-sister to 5 time Gr1 winning Alexandra Goldrun, Monpazier and Rocamadour both winning half-sisters to triple Gr1 winner Captain America, Premier Dance Gr3 placed half-sister to Champion Capetown Noir, Pretty Wendy 3 time winning own sister to Gr1 winner Pine Princess, Pretty Woman winning own sister to Gr1 winner Orbison, Princess Penelope winning daughter of Champion Princess Victoria, Scandola stakes placed half-sister to Cape Champion 2yo Erik The Red, Statute stakes winning own sister to Horse Of The Year Legislate, Syringa 2 time winning half-sister to dual Gr1 winner Snowdance, Whiskey Tango winning half-sister to Champion Capetown Noir.

One World covered 101 winners of 307 races including 14 mares by champion sire Western Winter, 11 mares by multiple champion sire Silvano, 10 daughters of champion sire and increasingly successful broodmare sire Trippi, and eight mares by leading sire Dynasty.

He also covered six mares by Dynasty’s sire Fort Wood – whose daughters have built up such a fine record when mated to One World’s sire Captain Al (including Malmoos).

Out of a mare by multiple champion sire Giant’s Causeway, and from the family of popular young French sire Al Wukair, One World won ten of just 14 starts, with his five stakes victories headed by a score in the 2020 G1 Sun Met where he accounted for six G1 winners including the champions Hawwaam, Vardy and Do It Again.

His champion sire Captain Al has had another fine season in 2020-2021. The former Cape Guineas winner’s stars this season include G1 Guineas winner Captain’s Ransom.
