Klawervlei Stud enjoyed tremendous success at Sunday’s Cape Premier Yearling Sale, which took place at the lavish De Grendel Wine Estate & Restaurant. Not only did Klawervlei top the Leading Vendors List on Sunday, the Bonnievale farm also consigned the sales’ top-priced colt and filly respectively. Remarkably, the three top lots at Sunday’s sale were all consigned by Klawervlei!

Klawervlei had 46 lots gross R16.325 million, and consigned the sales topping TWICE OVER (Observatory) colt (Lot 66), who was knocked down to John Freeman for R2 000 000. Bred on the same Twice Over/Jet Master cross as recent G1 Cape Guineas winner DOUBLE SUPERLATIVE, the sales topping colt is out of the three-time winning Jet Master mare JET SET MODEL.

Twice Over was not the only Klawervlei stallion to enjoy success at this year’s Premier Sale.

The Klawervlei bred Cape Guineas winner WILLIAM LONGSWORD (Captain Al), who has made such an encouraging start to his stud career, ended the sale as the Leading Sire by Aggregate. William Longsword had 25 lots gross R5.985 million, and had two colts fetch R500 000 at Sunday’s sale.

Klawervlei’s inform Vodacom Durban July winning sire POMODORO (Jet Master) also made his mark at the 2022 Premier Sale. The sire of champion RETURN FLIGHT and Guineas winner RUSSIAN ROCK had a filly (Lot 163) fetch R700 000 to the bid of Eric Sands. Out of G2 Gerald Rosenberg Stakes queen TROPHY WIFE (Tiger Ridge), the filly was consigned to the sale by Klawervlei Stud.
