Drakenstein Stud’s hugely exciting young stallion, and Equus Champion, One World has made a flying start to his stud career and the 2020 G1 Sun Met winner came up with his first stakes winner when One World colt One Stripe ran out a convincing winner of the G3 City Of Cape Town Cape Of Good Hope Nursery (1200m) at Hollywoodbets Kenilworth on Saturday.

Trained, like One World, by Vaughan Marshall, One Stripe had finished a close-up fifth on debut before romping home to score by six lengths at his only other start, and the colt was duly sent off a well-fancied chance for Saturday’s R1 000 000 contest for two-year-olds.

Under the inform Bernard Fayd’Herbe, One Stripe raced just off the pace early on before storming home down the inside of the track and going on to win by a length and a quarter.

He was one of two runners in the Nursery for One World with the latter also sire of Cape Nursery fourth place finisher Lion Rampart.

Bred by Drakenstein Stud, two-year-old One Stripe, who is out of the Silvano mare Silver Stripe, has now won twice from just three starts and he is a cracking flagbearer for his sire One World.

The colt made R1 400 000 when topping the 2023 Cape Racing Ready To Run And Unbroken Two Year Old Sale.

Champion One World is currently South Africa’s Leading First Season Sire for 2023-2024 and has already supplied five two-year-old winners this season.

The son of Captain Al also dominated proceedings at Sunday’s Cape Yearling Sale, where two colts sired by One World made R900 000 apiece to jointly top Sunday’s auction.
