Captain Al – Pagan Princess by Fort Wood (USA)

One of the very best sons of multiple champion sire CAPTAIN AL (Al Mufti), WILLIAM LONGSWORD won six of just eight starts including the 2016 G1 Cape Guineas and 2017 The CTS Mile.

A half-brother to G1 winning sprinter REAL PRINCESS (Trippi) and Wolf Power 1600 winner SILVER GOD (Silvano), William Longsword is out of the winning FORT WOOD (Sadler’s Wells) mare PAGAN PRINCESS and is bred on the same cross as multiple G1 winner CAPTAIN AMERICA (Captain Al).

William Longsword has made an exciting start to his stud career, with two of his first early runners finishing in the money, including brilliant recent winner SAFE RETURN.
