The Klawervlei Stud based European champion TWICE OVER (Observatory) was one of the finest racehorses ever to retire directly to stud in South Africa. A champion in both 2009 and 2010, Twice Over won 12 races in a career that saw him race from two to seven. He won four of the world’s premier G1 races -the G1 Juddmonte International, G1 Coral-Eclipse and two runnings of the G1 Emirates Airline Champion Stakes, and was placed in a further 10 G1 contests.

From the same family as US Horse Of The Year and top sire and broodmare sire DAMASCUS (Sword Dancer) as well as such standouts as ALL AT SEA (Riverman), ANTONOE (First Defence). BANSHEE BREEZE (Unbridled) and YOSHIDA (Heart’s Cry), Twice Over made a sensational start with his first crop headed by dual July winner, and Horse Of The Year, DO IT AGAIN, G1 Tsogo Sun Gold Medallion winner SAND AND SEA and four time graded stakes winner DOUBLEMINT.
His subsequent crops have yielded a flood of smart performers including R3 million-plus earner INVIDIA, the Oaks winning MOON IN JUNE, and the dual Oaks placed BALLET SHOES.

Twice Over, whose yearlings sold for R250k, R250k, R400k and R700k at the recent Cape Premier Sale, has 14 outstanding yearlings on offer at the upcoming National Yearling Sale including those listed below.
