Klawervlei Stud’s homebred Cape Guineas winner WILLIAM LONGSWORD (Captain Al) has had a wonderful season in 2022-2023 and the handsome bay struck yet again when he came up with two more winners at Hollywoodbets Greyville on Monday.
William Longsword’s first success on Monday came when his Michael Roberts trained daughter SATURN MOON won the fifth race at Greyville. Under Rachel Venniker, the three-year-old, third last time out, bounded clear to score by nearly three-parts of a length. Bred by Klawervlei Stud, Saturn Moon has now won twice for owners Alf Duncan and Verna Roberts.
William Longsword’s second triumph on Monday came when his flashy son VOLDEMORT powered home down the inside of the track to capture the eighth and final race at Greyville. A three-parts brother to G1 winners ALL IS SECRET (Captain Al) and THE SECRET IS OUT (Captain Al), the grey stormed home, under Sean Veale, to get up close home and win by nearly a length. Trained, like William Longsword and Captain Al, by Vaughan Marshall, Voldemort, bred by the BBP Syndicate, has now won three times for owner Rikesh Sewgoolam.
His sire has had a wonderful season in 2022-2023, with William Longsword’s flagbearers this season including G3 World Sports Betting Legal Eagle Stakes winner ITSRAININGWILLIAM and fellow stakes winners LORD WILLIAM (WSB Sledgehammer) and VIRGINIA SWEET (East Cape Oaks).
Willliam Longsword also has a number of promising two-year-olds this season, including DUMBLEDORE, KUPHOLIWE and TAMIL TIGRESS. Another two-year-old by William Longsword, LONGSWORD, holds an entry for the G1 World Pool Moment Of The Day Premiers Champion Stakes.
