12 July 2019

Klawervlei Stud’s four time G1 winning sire TWICE OVER (Observatory) made further news this week following the announcement that his outstanding son DO IT AGAIN had been given a 120 rating on the LONGINES Best Racehorse Rankings for the period between January 1st –July7th this year.

This places the dual G1 Vodacom Durban July winner in exulted company, with Do It Again’s ranking placing him equal to such standout international G1 winners as BRICKS AND MORTAR (Giant’s Causeway),MITOLE(Eskendereya), ROY H (More Than Ready) and STRADIVARIUS (Sea The Stars), as well as the star 3yos TOO DARN HOT (Dubawi), MAXIMUM SECURITY (New Year’s Day), SOTTSASS (Siyouni), and PHOENIX OF SPAIN (Lope De Vega).

Between them, the horses above have won such notable G1 races as the Irish 2000 Guineas, Prix du Jockey Club, Florida Derby, Breeders’ Cup Sprint –twice, Gold Cup –twice, Metropolitan Handicap, Churchill Downs Stakes, Dewhurst Stakes, Pegasus World Cup Turf Invitational, Manhattan Stakes, and Old Forester Turf Classic Stakes.

Bred by Northfields Stud, the four-year-old Do It Again is the joint highest rated South African racehorse on LONGINES’ latest ratings.

The leading contender to be named Horse Of The Year for 2018-2019, Do It Again became the first horse since EL PICHA to win the G1 Vodacom Durban July two years in a row, when he recorded a stunning triumph in Saturday’s R4.25 million July at Hollywoodbets Greyville.

The son of Twice Over has now won seven of his 13 starts for prize money in excess of R8.4 million.

European champion Twice Over, whose promising 2yo son DOUBLE ALLIANCE holds an entry for the upcoming G1 Premiers Champion Stakes, has two lots on offer at the 2019 National 2YO Sale.
