The Vaughan Marshall trained One World, who made a huge impression when winning on debut at Kenilworth on Saturday, is a colt bred to be anything.

Bred by Klawervlei Stud, the two-year-old is a son of former Marshall trained Cape Guineas winner Captain Al, South Africa’s Champion Sire of 2014-2015.
Now deceased, Captain Al also had eight 2yo sires titles to his credit, with his 80 plus stakes winners including  17 individual G1 winners.

The long list of stars sired by Captain Al include such Equus Champions as All Is Secret, Always In Charge, Captain Of All, Captain’s Lover, Cloth Of Cloud, and Carry On Alice, as well as former Met winner Hill Fifty Four. Captain Al is also responsible for William Longsword and Tap O’ Noth, winners of the last two runnings of the G1 Cape Guineas, recent G1 winning sprinter Sergeant Hardy, and current star filly Snowdance.

One World, a R425 000 purchase from last year’s Cape Premier Yearling Sale,  is a half-brother to 3 winners including Breeders’ Guineas second Count To Ten.

His second dam is a full-sister to G1 Prix de Diane (French Oaks) winner Caerlina, who also features as the granddam of new French sire, and G1 Prix Jacques le Marois winner Al Wukair.

One World traces back directly in female line to French Oaks  winner Dorina, dam of successful sire Astrophel.

This is the same family as Epsom Derby/2000 Guineas winner and former leading sire Crepello.

One World’s broodmare sire is triple US champion sire Giant’s Causeway, whose daughters have produced  more than 70 stakes winners, is currently the Leading Broodmare Sire in the USA.
Among the best horses produced by Giant’s Causeway mares are US Horse Of The Year Gun Runner and local champion, and Wilgerbosdrift sire, Soft Falling Rain.
