Drakenstein Stud’s sensational young stallion One World set a new South African record for individual two-year-old winners sired by a first-season sire when his daughter One Party won at Turffontein on Saturday.
One Party provided her sire with a 23rd juvenile first-crop winner, surpassing the previous 22 winners set by One World’s champion sire Captain Al.

Bred by Riverton Stud (also breeders of One World’s very promising son One More), the Fanie Bronkhurst trained One Party, third in her only two previous starts, powered home to land Saturday’s TAB Telebet 0861 000 822 Maiden Juvenile Plate (1450m) in smart style.

Under Muzi Yeni, the two-year-old hit the front full of running and stayed on smartly to win by three parts of a length.

Bred on similar lines to the Captain Al sired G3 winner Cousin Liz, One Party is out of the Parade Leader mare Fiesta Queen. The filly was a R170 000 purchase from the 2023 November Two Year Old Sale.

One World had a notable double at Turffontein on Saturday with his Corne Spies trained son Chocolate Soldier winning the seventh race. The gelded two-year-old outclassed some hard-knocking older rivals as he roared away to win Saturday’s Racing Today MR 74 Handicap (1000m) by four lengths.

Bred by Ian Van Schalkwyk, Chocolate Soldier had finished second last time out, and the gelding, who had contested the G2 TAB SA Nursery earlier this season, looks destined for bigger and better things.

Chocolate Soldier, out of the Pathfork mare Secret Star, was a R220 000 buy from the 2023 August Two Year Old Sale.

The former Equus Champion and G1 Sun Met winner also went close to having feature race success at Hollywoodbets Kenilworth on Saturday with his promising son All Out For Six finishing a close-up second in the G3 Langerman over 1500 metres.

In addition, One World filllies Sahara Cat and Miss World finished third and fourth respectively in Saturday’s Listed Irridescence Stakes, with Sahara Cat having won her two previous starts and Miss World having finished second, to another One World sired runner Lion Rampart, in the Listed Somerset 1200.

One World has been responsible for five first crop horses to have either won or been placed in black type races, with his son One Stripe, a controversial scratching from Saturday’s G3 Langerman, victorious in both the G3 City Of Cape Town Cape Of Good Hope Nursery and G3 Winter Nursery.

One World is not only South Africa’s Leading First Season Sire for 2023-2024 but he is also the country’s Leading Sire of 2YOs for the season by both individual winners and by stakes earned.

The champion has 12 lots on offer at the upcoming KZN Yearling Sale.
