Promising 3yo filly Time Chaser, a close relative of Klawervlei’s promising sire Twice Over, maintained her unbeaten record when scoring over a mile at Sandown on Friday.
A daughter of Dubawi and G1 Criterium de Saint-Cloud winner Passage Of Time, Time Chaser ran on to justify favouritism in the 1600m contest, staying on strongly to deny the well bred Tirania victory by a neck.
Time Chaser, who looks likely to be aimed at black type features later in the season, is a full-sister to four time group winner Time Test, second in the recent G1 Woodford Reserve Manhattan Stakes, who has banked more than $765 000 in prize money.
Their G1 winning dam Passage Of Time, a half-sister to G1 Falmouth Stakes winner Timepiece, is out of a daughter of Quandary –the second dam of Twice Over.
This is also the family of impressive recent G1 Just A Game Stakes winner Antonoe, whose dam Ixora currently resides at Klawervlei.
Four time G1 winner and European champion Twice Over, whose yearlings fetched up to R450 000 at the recent Klawervlei Farm Sale, has made an exceptional start to his stud career with his first runners including unbeaten G1 Tsgogo Sun Gold Medallion winner Sand And Sea.
He has a single lot on offer at next week’s KZN Yearling Sale –a colt out of a winning daughter of Tapit from the same family as Epsom Derby winner and breed shaping sire Roberto (Lot 241).
