John Oxley’s Sovereign Award champion Dynamic Sky has been retired and will enter stud at the Everatt family’s Shannondoe Farm in St. Thomas, Ontario, Canada. He will stand for a fee of $4,000 (Canadian funds), stands and nurses.
Stakes-placed in his two-year-old debut, Dynamic Sky won the subsequent Vandal Stakes at Woodbine before a strong runner-up effort in the Grade 1 Breeders’ Futurity at Keeneland.
Dynamic Sky flirted with the American Triple Crown after a highly impressive three-year-old debut in Pasco Stakes at Tampa Bay Downs and close second, beaten just a neck, in the Sam F. Davis S. (G3). Back in Canada to prep for the Canadian classics, Dynamic Sky was a game nose victor in the Plate Trial Stakes before a third-place run in the $1 million Queen’s Plate.
Dynamic Sky blossomed into a top grass runner during his four-year-old season. He placed in four graded stakes, including the Northern Dancer S. (G1) and the Canadian International (G1), Canada’s two most important turf events. He capped off the year with a rousing victory in the Red Smith H. (G3) in New York. In that race he defeated eventual Eclipse Award winner Big Blue Kitten by 1 ¼ lengths. That effort also solidified support among Sovereign Award voters, who made him 2014’s champion turf male in Canada.
“Dynamic Sky is the most versatile good horse I have ever trained,” said trainer Mark Casse. “He was a stakes winner at 2,3 & 4 on dirt, poly & turf from 6.5 furlongs to 11 furlongs. If you are looking for a Queen’s Plate winner he is the horse to breed to.”
A son of the good Pulpit stallion Sky Mesa out of the stakes-winning Distorted Humor mare Murani, Dynamic Sky won or placed in a total of 15 blacktype races. He retires with a career bankroll of $1,099,258.
“From the proven sire line of Pulpit, he was precocious, versatile and sound!”, added Shannondoe Farm’s Arika Everatt-Meeuse. “Dynamic Sky offers breeders the total package as he is a gorgeous individual as well!”
Dynamic Sky is now available for inspection at Shannondoe Farm. Inquiries can be made to Arika Everatt-Meeuse at 519-871-9347 or via email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
