Dual Identity (IRE)
2018 Bay colt by Belardo (IRE) ex Teide Lady (GB) (Nashwan (USA))
Owner KVT IV
Dual Identity is an attractive colt who hails from the first crop of the Champion two-year-old and Dewhurst (Group 1) winner Belardo, who went on to win the Lockinge (Group 1) aged four. Belardo is very much bred to be a top class stallion. A son of the leading sire Lope De Vega, he actually achieved a higher Timeform rating on the track than his own father. His dam, Danaskaya, was herself a very fast and precocious two-year-old who earned the accolade of being crowned Champion two-year-old filly in Ireland.
The dam, Teide Lady, is a winning daughter of Sheikh Hamdan’s outstanding Derby winner Nashwan who has already produced the Group 3 winning two-year-old Ayaar at stud to date. She, herself, is a half- sister to the Superlative Stakes (Group 2) winner Hatta Fort as well as a very recent Group 3 winner in the shape of Brian Meehan’s Spirit Of Appin.
We bought this colt at the Tattersalls Book 1 Yearling Sale which makes him eligible for the £25,000 Book 1 Bonus should he win a Class 4 or above Novice/Maiden race as a two-year-old, something our own Persian Moon accomplished last year. William Knight loved him at the sales and trains him from his idyllic Angmering Park base in Sussex.
William took out his licence in 2006 and has built a successful operation at Lower Coombe Stables in West Sussex’s historic Angmering Park. William was previously assistant to Ed Dunlop and the late John Hills, and his biggest win to date came with Illustrious Blue taking the Group 2 Goodwood Cup at his local track.
Closing in on 300 domestic winners - including successes at Group 2, Group 3 and Listed level, he is a very hands on trainer with around 50 horses in his yard.
