Double strike for Over

12th Nov 2018

Klawervlei Stud’s exciting sire Twice Over has seldom been out of the news over the past 12 months, and the European champion was it again this weekend, with Twice Over responsible for a double this past weekend.

Twice Over’s Do It Again

Twice Over’s first winner on the weekend came when his Wilgerbosdrift & Mauritzfontein bred daughter Three Times A Lady romped home to score by three and a quarter lengths over 1800m at Fairview.
Trained by Alan Greeff, and ridden to victory by Greg Cheyne, the beautifully bred filly was not winning out of turn, with Three Times A Lady having been runner up at her two previous starts.

Three Times A Lady races for prominent owners Celso and Lee Scribante and she was a R280 000 buy from the 2016 National Yearling Sale.

Her four times G1 winning sire Twice Over enjoyed further success at Turffontein the following day when his gelded son Mighty And Magic scored for trainer Sean Tarry and rider Lyle Hewitson.
Bred by the Drakenstein Stud, and racing for Bernard Kantor, Mighty And Magic picked up the third win of his career when posting a 1.1 length win over Turffontein’s inside track as the tote favourite.

Out of the Rainbow Quest mare Strategic Quest (and thus bred on a very similar cross to that which produced Twice Over’s Gold Medallion winner Sand And Sea), Mighty And Magic was a R425 000 buy from the 2016 Emperors Palace Select Yearling Sale.


His sire Twice Over, whose relative Yoshida captured the 2018 G1 Woodward Stakes before running a close up fourth in the recent G1 Breeders’ Cup Classic,  made an exceptional start to his stud career with his very first crop producing the outstanding July winning champion Do It Again, the above mentioned Sand And Sea and impressive Derby winner Doublemint.

The dual G1 Emirates Airline Champion Stakes winning Twice Over has six lots on offer at this month’s CTS Ready To Run Sale.
