Two strikes for Twice Over

2nd May 2018

Klawervlei Stud’s exciting young stallion Twice Over continued his good run of form last week, with his progeny enjoying success on both the racetrack and in the sales ring.

The four time G1 winner enjoyed a notable double this past weekend, with daughter Suzi Woo and son Due Volte both winning their respective races.

The Klawervlei Stud bred Suzi Woo romped to a facile four length maiden win over 1200m at Greyville on Friday night for trainer (and part-owner) Shane Humby and jockey Anton Marcus. The well related filly, one of nearly 30 first crop winners to have emerged for Twice Over thus far, races for Messrs Champion, Chowles, van Tonder, Clacey, Humby, Mattheyse, K Naidoo and Mrs de Nobrega.

Twice Over’s second winner over the weekend came when son Due Volte made much of the running to break his maiden over 1400m at Kenilworth on Saturday. Bred by the Druk-My-Niet Stud, the Brett Crawford trained sophomore is owned by Ian Longmore in partnership with Mrs Delma Sherrell.

The former European champion also struck gold at last week’s Emperors Palace National Yearling Sale, where Twice Over was responsible for the joint-top lot sold during the sale’s second session.  His Avontuur Thoroughbred Farm consigned son, Double The Fun (Lot 418), fetched R1 000 000 to the bid of John Freeman.

Crossed Baton

The in-form Twice Over, whose close relative Crossed Baton is a likely Investec Derby contender, could well be on course for more success in the coming weeks.

Twice Over will be doubly represented in the Guineas contests on Friday, with his G1 Investec Cape Derby runner up Do It Again lining up in the G2 Daisy Guineas and daughter Twice As Smart contesting the G2 Daisy Fillies Guineas on the same card.

Another first crop son of Twice Over, Run Red, holds an entry for the upcoming East Cape Derby in May.
