The Drakenstein Stud based champion Futura has made an encouraging start to his stud career, and the former Horse Of The Year supplied another first-crop winner at Hollywoodbets Scottsville on Wednesday.

Futura’s two-year-old daughter Jasmine made a dazzling debut for trainer Glen Kotzen when she scored a going away win over 1200m on Wednesday afternoon.
Under Khanya Sakayi, the Kotzen trained and owned Jasmine powered clear in the closing stages of Wednesday’s race to score a length win on debut.

Bred by Mr & Mrs Davies, Jasmine was a bargain R15 000 buy from the 2019 Emperors Palace National 2YO Sale.

She joins feature race contender Karnalie as an early winner to have emerged from champion Futura’s first crop, with Futura now having had first crop runners to have either won or finished in the money.

South Africa’s Horse Of The Year in 2014-2015, and a four time G1 winner, Futura is a son of former Horse Of The Year and outstanding sire Dynasty -whose notable recent winners include the impressive G2 Independent On Saturday Drill Hall Stakes winner Bunker Hunt and Kuda Sweet Chestnut Stakes heroine Sing Out Loud.
