Klawervlei’s G1 Cape Guineas winning stallion WILLIAM LONGSWORD (Captain Al) has been in good form of late, and the son of Captain Al had another good weekend when responsible for two eye-catching winners.

William Longsword’s first success over the past weekend came when his daughter ROSE OF BAYEUX romped to an emphatic victory at Fairview on Friday afternoon. Trained by Duncan McKenzie, the four-year-old pulled well clear of her chasing rivals to register an easy two length score. 

Bred by Basil Marcus, Rose Of Bayeux is owned by Morgan Govender.

Her inform sire struck again when the William Longsword sired colt EL REY VIENE scored an eye-catching win at Hollywoodbets Greyville on Sunday. Despite hanging all over the course, the Duncan Howells trained three-year-old showed his class when powering home to shed his maiden by nearly a length and three-quarters, when scoring over 1800 metres.

Owned by the Hollywood Syndicate, the lightly raced El Rey Viene was bred by James Armitage.

William Longsword went close to having a double on Sunday, with his son BOTZ finishing a close-up second in the seventh race on the Hollywoodbets Greyville card.

Already sire of such talented sorts as DYCE, REMEMBER WHEN, BON VIVANT and HASTA MANANA, William Longsword has nine lots on offer at the upcoming Cape Racing Ready To Run & 2YO Unbroken Sale.
