Klawervlei Stud’s four time G1 winning stallion TWICE OVER (Observatory) was the toast of Hollywoodbets Kenilworth on Saturday when his sons DOUBLE SUPERLATIVE and SEE IT AGAIN finished first and fourth respectively in the G1 World Sports Betting Cape Town Met. 

Both Double Superlative and See It Again are owned by Nick Jonsson, with Nick also a part-owner of the former Twice Over sired champion DO IT AGAIN, and he also owns the stallion’s high-class son MUCHO DINERO.

Winner of the 2021 G1 Cape Guineas, Double Superlative showed a return to the high-class form he had shown earlier in his career when storming home to land the 2024 Met in scintillating fashion.

Under a superbly timed ride from Daniel Muscutt, the five-year-old entire split runners late on before bursting out of the pack to get up and nab the front running RASCALLION (Vercingetorix) close home and win by just under half a length.

A second consecutive Met winner for trainer Justin Snaith, Double Superlative was bred by Patricia Devine Investments (Pty) Ltd. The entire, who also finished third in the 2022 G1 Jonsson Workwear Cape Derby, has now earned more than R1.96 million.

In landing the 2024 Met, Double Superlative made amends for his paternal half-brother Do It Again, with the latter finishing runner up in the 2019 renewal.


Twice Over went close to having a graded stakes double on Saturday with his Nick Jonsson owned son TRIPLE TIME finishing a short-head second in the G3 New Turf Carriers Western Cape Stayers.

The former champion has had a magnificent season in 2023-2024 thus far, with Twice Over sons DOUBLE SUPERLATIVE, SEE IT AGAIN, MUCHO DINERO and SENSO UNICO having won all of the G1 World Sports Betting Cape Town Met, G2 World Sports Betting Green Point Stakes, G2 Anthonij Rupert Wine Premier Trophy, Listed Woolavington Stakes and Listed Hollywoodbets Settlers Trophy respectively. In fact, Twice Over sons Senso Unico and Triple Time finished first and second respectively in the Settlers Trophy.

Twice Over has a single lot on offer at the 2024 Cape Yearling Sale -a filly (Lot 112) whose four time winning dam is a three-parts sister to Equus Champion and dual G1 winner ALONG CAME POLLY (Judpot).
