More success for William Longsword brother

15th Oct 2018

Klawervlei Stud’s popular young stallion William Longsword received a further boost to his impressive pedigree page when his talented half-brother Silver God powered home to land an assessment plate on Saturday.

Silver God, who holds an entry for the 2018 G1 G-Bets Gauteng Summer Cup, made it win number three when scoring for trainer Sean Tarry and owner Chris Van Niekerk over 1450m in Saturday’s abbreviated Turffontein meeting.

Given a fine ride by rising riding star Luke Ferraris, Silver God, who had contested the G1 SA Derby at his last start, made a winning four-year-old debut when downing front runner Rule The Night to win going away.

Bred by Klawervlei, the gelding had been a R2 000 000 purchase from the 2016 Cape Premier Yearling Sale.

Silver God is a half-brother to three winners, headed by the G1 winners Real Princess and William Longsword.

The latter, whose sire Captain Al was responsible for five individual G1 winners last season, was an exceptional racehorse, whose six wins (from just eight outings) included both the G1 Cape Guineas and CTS 1600.

One of the very best sons of Captain Al, William Longsword banked over R4 000 000 during his racing career.

William Longsword, whose mates this season include the outstanding producer Sweet Virginia, has made an immediately positive impression with his first foals arriving this season to rave reviews.
