Klawervlei Stud’s inform sire WILLIAM LONGSWORD (Captain Al) came up with a smart looking winner at Hollywoodbets Greyville on Hollywoodbets Durban July day.

His daughters JUST BE LEKKER and SHIPHOLIA ran first and second in Saturday’s Brentford FC Pinnacle Stakes (1200m) to give their sire a memorable result.

Among those beaten by Just Be Lekker were the classy stakes winners BALTIC SECRET (Querari), SHANTASTIC (Rafeef) and TROPPO VELOCE (Rafeef).

Under an inform S’Manga Khumalo, classy three-year-old Just Be Lekker stormed home down the centre of the track to thrash her paternal half-sister Shipholia by nearly three lengths.

Trained by Candice Dawson, the Ralphs Racing owned Just Be Lekker was winning for a fourth time, with the filly having already earned well over R900 000 in stakes.

Bred by the Ralphs Syndicate, Just Be Lekker had shown some smart form earlier this season, finishing runner up in the Cape Racing Sales The Ready To Run Stakes and third in the G2 Betway Joburg F and M Spring Challenge.

Her sire William Longsword, whose son MELECH ran a close up fourth in Saturday’s G2 Post Merchants, has had a fine season in 2023-2024, with his flagbearers including high-class sprinters DYCE and RULERSHIP, Listed Secretariat Stakes winner SABRE STRIKE and G1 TAB SA Classic third place getter WILLIAM IRON ARM.
