Updates – Imilenzeyokududuma
August 28th, 2023
He has gone into training with Gareth van Zyl.
April 22nd, 2023
Raced over 1400m at Hollywoodbets Greyville on the turf track. Finished 9th out of 11 runners.
Anthony Delpech post-race comment: Disappointing run, not his form.
February 25th, 2023
Raced over 1600m at Hollywoodbets Kenilworth in the Listed Gordon’s Gin Jet Master Stakes. Finished 9th out of 15 runners.
Anthony Delpech post-race comment: He missed the start and then was rushed into a position. I feel you can forgive him for the poor run.
January 14th, 2023
Raced over 1400m at Hollywoodbets Kenilworth. Finished 2nd out of 14 runners.
Anthony Delpech post-race comment: He missed the start and after that I felt that his race was gone. He was rushed to catch up and was way out of his ground. He still ran a great race to finish second.
December 17th, 2022
Raced over 1800m at Hollywoodbets Kenilworth in the Grade 2 Ridgemont Highlands Peninsula Handicap. Finished 2nd out of 16 runners.
Anthony Delpech post-race comment: Great run, was beaten by a better horse on the day.
November 27, 2022
374 – IMILENZEYOKUDUDUMA wins Race 6 at Hollywoodbets Kenilworth over 1600m and brings up the 50th winner for the season. The son of Dynasty was settled near the rear of the field, ran on powerfully and drew clear under Sean Veale. He was brought to the course in perfect condition by Hollywoodbets-sponsored Peter Muscutt and is bred by Ridgemont Highlands.
September 11th, 2022
339 – IMILENZEYOKUDUDUMA finally shows his mettle and wins with a convincing show at Hollywoodbets Scottsville under pilot Tristan Godden. Well done to Hollywoodbets sponsored trainer Peter Muscutt.
August 26th, 2022
He disappointed on the poly on Wednesday. He scoped clear but was full of poly track in his trachea. He is clearly much better than that and will head to a MR 93 handicap over 1600m at Scottsville on 11/9/22.
August 24th, 2022
Raced over 1700m at Hollywoodbets Greyville on the polytrack. Finished 4th out of 9 runners.
James Rich post-race comment: With 200m I thought he was going to win with ease. Ashton Arries reported that he dug his toes in the last 100m and may not have seen out the 1700m at this stage of his career. I feel there is a lot more to come from this horse.
July 24th, 2022
Raced over 1400m at Hollywoodbets Scottsville. Finished 7th out of 14 runners.
Anthony Delpech post-race comment: Ran on very well from a long way back. He will come on a lot from the run.
July 20th, 2022
Is still showing great talent despite the hind leg issues he’s been faced with. He returns to the races on Sunday 24/7/22 in a MR 82 handicap at Scottsville. We have him as sound as possible now, but its a very fine line to draw with him getting his fitness levels up and keeping him sound. His heart rate recoveries indicate his fitness levels are good but he is still carrying a bit of excess condition. Richard rides on Sunday from a deep draw and I expect him to be coming home strongly late.
March 6th, 2022
281 – IMILENZEYOKUDUDUMA makes it a double for the Syndicate over 1400m. He followed up his impressive maiden win with a classy victory under Warren Kennedy. He is trained by Hollywoodbets-sponsored Peter Muscutt. Well done to the breeders Ridgemont Highlands.
Anthony Delpech post-race comment: It was a good win after his maiden victory. Warren Kennedy says he need further and could be a Daily News horse.
February 20th, 2022
276 – IMILENZEYOKUDUDUMA wins his maiden in fine style. He was given a confident ride by jockey Warren Kennedy and was brought to the course in top condition by trainer Peter Muscutt. Well done to the breeders Ridgemont Highlands.
Anthony Delpech post-race comment: Very easy win, he could be a smart horse and the time off could have done him the world of good.
January 11th, 2021
Update from Peter Muscutt: Imilenzeyokududuma has progressed very nicely since his enforced layoff with a fractured hind splint bone. The fracture site has healed very well and he is good in his action. I have given him a slow preparation to ensure he maintains his soundness. He had his first easy gallop on the grass this morning. I was pleased with his effort but did have a big blow post gallop. He will have a harder effort on the grass next Thursday and I will put the Arioneo Heart rate monitor on him to determine his fitness levels and decide how far off he is to his return to the track.
November 30th, 2021
Imilenzeyokududuma arrived back at Summerveld this morning after his enforced spell. Video:
November 4th, 2021
Imilenzeyokududuma was gelded today.
June 12th, 2021
He was a tad disappointing when taking his place in the Listed Cell C Sharks Gatecrasher Stakes. He has pulled up shin sore after the race and is definitely better than the effort suggests. There is a lot more to come from the son of Dynasty. See the replay here.
May 16th, 2021
He made a promising debut over 1200m at Hollywoodbets Greyville on the turf. He had to overcome the widest draw of 14 and finished his race off strongly. He will come on from the outing and there will be plenty of improvement to come from him. See the replay here.
March 18th, 2021
Imilenzeyokududuma going through the stalls this morning, on the far side. He was very professional in all that he did at the barriers this morning. He walked straight in, stood and jumped smartly. Despite being relatively green and shying away from the cones, the stable couldn’t be happier with his progress. “He is a lovely son of Dynasty in the making.”
December 1st, 2020
Imilenzeyokududuma completing a solid piece of work on the poly track this morning. He continues to progress in a very professional manner. He has done everything asked of him up to now and continues to grow and furnish all the time. He has a very good action and attitude and at this stage all signs with him are encouraging.
November 24th, 2020
Here he is doing his first bit of faster work this morning. He continues to progress well, has a great action and his attitude is very conducive to the task at hand. He is physically far more mature than the majority of Dynasty’s at this stage. Peter Muscutt will continue to up the anti with him over the coming weeks and see how far we get with him in his first preparation.
November 4th, 2020
Previously known as RAIDER, this smart Dynasty Colt has been renamed by Jerry Sikhosana and will now be called: IMILENZEYOKUDUDUMA. The name means “Legs Of Thunder”.
October 28th, 2020
Raider (2c Dynasty x Chevauchee AUS by High Chapparal IRE) working on the near side this morning. He has progressed really well and is now ready to take the next step. He will start doing 3/4 pace work (15 seconds to the furlong) next week as we start to increase his fitness levels.
He has a great action and attitude which makes the task a lot easier. See his workout here:
October 16th, 2020
Raider on the far side, cantering upsides this morning. The stable are very happy with his progress. He is learning very quickly and taking everything in his stride. Having cantered on all the Summerveld tracks now, the yard will now start increasing his work load from next week, along with starting his barrier education.
October 9th, 2020
Raider, near side, having his first canter this morning at Summerveld. He has settled perfectly into his new home since arriving from the Cape and he is taking everything in his stride as he commences his formal education. He is a well grown Dynasty colt with good substance, action and temperament.
May 18, 2020
After a just a few months, this son of Dynasty has been thriving on the farm. He’s been long-reined and backed, and turned away again to grow up some more. A beautifully angular colt, he has really developed an impressive quarter and we are excited to see what he turns into come spring time, later this year.
January 17, 2020
He is currently on his way to be spelled at Soetendaal Estate, under the watchful guidance of Julia Pilbeam and Deon Ensink. Pictured below, immediately after the fall of the hammer at yesterdays CTS Cape Premier Yearling Sale 2020.
