Klawervlei Stud’s consistently successful stallion TWICE OVER (Observatory) had a wonderful season in 2022-2023, and the four time G1 winner looks set for another big season, if his early success in 2023-2024 is anything to go by.

Twice Over’s good form continued when he came up with two smart winners at Hollywoodbets Scottsville on Sunday, where his daughter SWEET SYMPHONY won the sixth race and son RODRIGUEZ captured the eighth and final race on Sunday.

Trained by Michael Miller, the courageous Sweet Symphony dug down deep to land Sunday’s Pound Bloodstock FM 88 Handicap (F&M) by just over half a length. Ridden to victory by Tristan Godden, the Waterford Stud bred and owned mare has now won four times, with Sweet Symphony having now won her last two races.¬†

Twice Over is also the sire of the Louis Goosen trained Rodriguez, who won the eighth and final race at Scottsville on Sunday afternoon. Under Chase Maujean, Rodriguez raced towards the back of the field for much of Sunday’s race, but powered home down the inside to get up and win a shade cosily by a neck.¬†Bred by Rathmor Stud, the Mario Ferreira owned Rodriguez has now won four times

The inform Twice Over also made his presence felt at Friday night’s Cape Racing and Breeders Awards ceremony, where his son SEE IT AGAIN was crowned the Cape Breeders’ Champion Middle Distance Horse for 2022-2023.

A three-parts brother to the Twice Over sired Horse Of The Year DO IT AGAIN, See It Again had an outstanding season last season when he won both the G1 Splashout Cape Derby and G1 Daily News 2000, and was also runner up in both the G1 Hollywoodbets Durban July and G1 HKJC Champions Cup.
