Fresh off supplying last weekend’s #ThisIsRacing Cape Mile winner Warrior, Drakenstein Stud’s inform stallion Futura had another good day on Saturday when the former Horse Of The Year was responsible for three more winners.

Not only was Futura sire of the winners of the first two races run at Kenilworth on Saturday, his G2 Durban Golden Horseshoe winning son Nourbese confirmed himself as one of rising stars of Mauritius when he won a good race at Champ De Mars on Saturday.

Futura filly Dawnofanewday got off the mark in convincing fashion when she won the Welcome To Cape Racing Maiden Plate (F&M) (1400m) at Kenilworth.
The Dean Kannemeyer trained three-year-old powered home, under Keagan De Melo, to shed her maiden by three-parts of a length.

Bred and owned by Drakenstein Stud, Dawnofanewday was making her fourth start on Saturday, with the well bred filly having finished third at her previous start.

Out of the Trippi mare Dawn Rising, Dawnofanewday is bred on the same Futura/Trippi cross as G3 Poinsettia Stakes winner Vihaan’s Pie and Bauhinia Handicap queen Sweet Future.

Futura made it a quick Kenilworth double when his son The Futurist made the running to capture Saturday’s second race, the Maiden Plate (1400m) for trainer Brett Crawford and jockey Louis Mxothwa.
Bred by Pete Carolin, the lightly raced three-year-old, making just his third career start, had finished third last time out.

Dynasty’s four time G1 winning son Futura, whose promising son Xavion holds an entry for next Saturday’s G2 Concorde Cup, has two fillies on offer at the 2021 November Two Year Old Sale.
