KLAWERVLEI STUD is a thoroughbred breeding enterprise conducted from the farm Wagenboomheuwel on the banks of the Breede river east of Bonnievale, a village in the BAR valley. This area has traditionally been associated with the breeding of high quality and sound race horses. These traits are procured predominantly as a result of climatology and soil type.

Klawervlei is conducted through a corporate entity owned by John Koster and a syndicate of businessmen. The stud is managed by John, a seasoned equine stockman hailing from a family that has been engaged in thoroughbred breeding for generations.

Stud Highlights:

Resident stallions include Captain of All, Pomodoro, Royal Mo, Twice Over (GB) and William Longsword.

The stud was founded in 1953 by Ralph Koster, one of John’s ancestors. He imported broodmares from the best Irish and English bloodlines. They became taproot mares and still constitute the genetic pillars of the stud.

The Klawervlei broodmare band has been expanded in the recent past under the stewardship of John. Broodmares with international pedigrees have been acquired over the past two years from Ireland, England, France and Australia.

Resident stallions include Captain of All, Count Dubois (GB), Coup De Grace (USA), Pomodoro, Red Ray, Seventh Rock (AUS), Twice Over (GB) and William Longsword.
