Dual Identity (IRE)
2018 Bay gelding by Belardo (IRE) ex Teide Lady (GB) (Nashwan (USA))
Owner KVT IV
Dual Identity had just two starts as a juvenile, with a best placed third on his final start in October. Anything he did last year was a bonus as he was a bit weak and he should further develop physically as we move through this year. He had this first start of the season at Epsom and will now head to handicaps were he should be more effective.
Dual Identity is an attractive gelding 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 gelding at the Tattersalls Book 1 Yearling Sale. William Knight loved him at the sales and trains him from his base in Newmarket.
William Knight is Group winning trainer who is based in Newmarket at the state-of-art yard at Rathmoy Stables. He trains our KVT Flag bearer Sir Busker and three other horses for KVT.
