Klawervlei Stud’s homebred Cape Guineas winner WILLIAM LONGSWORD (Captain Al) ended 2023 on a high note when he came up with two smart winners at Hollywoodbets Greyville on the final day of the year.

His three-year-old daughter PATANTS HEIR got off the mark at just the second time of asking when she bolted up in Sunday’s Mobile BettingĀ Maiden Plate (F &M) (1200m).

Under Anthandiwe Mgudlwa, the Gareth Van Zyl trained filly hit the front full of run and powered home to win as she liked by over five and a half lengths.

The promising Patants Heir, who was bred by Maine Chance Farms (Pty) Ltd, races for the Hollywood Syndicate.

Hollywood Syndicate also own William Longsword’s other winner on Sunday in the form of KUPHOLIWE, who ran out a convincing winner of the Open A Tabgold Account-031 314 1874 Middle Stakes (1200m).

Under Richard Fourie, the Peter Muscutt trained Kupholiwe powered home down the inside of the track to score a game victory by a long neck.

Bred by Klawervlei Stud, the three-year-old had shown good promise at two when rated good enough to contest the G2 Durban Golden Horseshoe, and Kupholiwe could well build on Sunday’s win.
