Let It Rain, the Highlands-bred son of Dynasty gave a brave display in the 2800m R400 000 Gr2 Cape Stayers on Sun Met Day under the guidance of the astute Richard Fourie – who made all the difference.

Let It Rain, owned by Hassen Adams and trained by Dan Katz,  rallied powerfully to beat the luckless Master’s Eye by a head in a time of 180,22 secs, with Ollivander a further two lengths back in third. The Johannesburg visitor Fortissima never got into the race and ran a weak fourth.

A R1,3 million Cape Premier Yearling Sale purchase, the winner is by Dynasty (Fort Wood) out of the one-time winning Gardener’s Delight (Giant’s Causeway).

That makes him a half-brother to 4 winners, including Equus Champion, Gr2 Godolphin Mile winner and present day Wilgerbosdrift sire, Soft Falling Rain.

Let It Rain was registering his second stakes success and took his tally to 6 wins with 11 places from 28 starts for stakes of R917 888.
