Impressive win for William Longsword sibling

31st Jan 2018

Silver God, a half-brother to Klawervlei’s well performed young stallion William Longsword, got back in the winners enclosure when he scored over 1500m at the Vaal on Tuesday afternoon.

William Longsword

A son of Silvano, the Sean Tarry trained three-year-old, who had been contesting feature races earlier this season, produced a fine turn of foot, to come from the back of the field and win going away.
Silver God was one of two winners on the card for his champion trainer and jockey JP Van Der Merwe.

The colt, a R2 000 000 buy from the 2016 Cape Premier Yearling Sale , is not only a half-brother to the superb William Longsword but also counts G1 South African Fillies Sprint winner Real Princess as a half-sister.

Another out of Pagan Princess was the Trippi filly who made R1 500 000 at the 2017 Klawervlei Farm Sale.

The brilliant William Longsword, one of more than 80 stakes winners sired by red-hot former champion sire Captain Al, won six of his eight races and earned more thanR4 000 000 in prize money.

Captain Al

Like Captain Al, William Longsword won the prestigious Cape Guineas, and he is one of two sons of his sire (Undercover Agent being the other) to have won the $500 000 CTS 1600.

Captain Al has been in sensational form this season, with his offspring having won all of the G1 World Sports Betting Cape Fillies Guineas, G1 Forus Cape Guineas, G1 Betting World Cape Flying Championship and the G1 Klawervlei Majorca Stakes. The former eight times champion sire of 2yos was also responsible for the first two home in Saturday’s CTS 1600 on Sun Met day.
