Trainer Vaughan Marshall looks to have an exceptional prospect on his hands in the form of the Klawervlei Stud bred One World.
The latter made it three wins from as many outings when scoring a five and a quarter length win, in front running fashion, in Saturday’s Listed Highlands Stud Langerman –one of five feature races run at Kenilworth this weekend.


One World, whose stable mate Tap O’ Noth captured last year’s Langerman before going on to win this season’s G1 Forus Cape Guineas, simply pulverizd his opponents, pulling further and further clear under jockey MJ Byleveld (also enjoying a Langerman double) to win in the style of a potentially exceptional racehorse.

Like Tap O’ Noth, One World, a R425 000 Cape Premier Yearling Sale buy for owners Etienne Braun, Ken and Jane Truter and Braam Van Huyssteen, is a son of Klawervlei Stud’s deceased champion sire Captain Al.

Klawervlei are also home to one of South Africa’s rising sire stars in the form of four time G1 winner and European Champion Twice Over. The latter enjoyed his second major feature race winner in a week (Twice Over is sire of 2018 G1 Vodacom Durban July winner Do It Again) when the Alec and Honorable Gillian Foster owned Doublemint romped to a 3.25 length win in the G3 Highlands Stud Winter Derby (the final leg of the Winter Series) under Hong Kong bound jockey Grant Van Niekerk.

The flashy Doublemint, a third consecutive Winter Derby winner for recent July winning trainer Justin Snaith, was dispatched a 2-1 favourite for Saturday’s Derby having finished third and fourth, to Derby absentee Rainbow Bridge, in the G3 Winter Classic and G3 Winter Guineas respectively. The colt could not have been more impressive in his win on Saturday (Doublemint was conceding weight to his field) and is regarded as a potential July contender by his connections.

Coral Bay, an upset 28-1 winner of the Listed Kenilworth Fillies Nursery while still a maiden, confirmed her Fillies Nursery win was no fluke when scoring a convincing and cosy win in Saturday’s Listed Highlands Stud Irridescence Stakes. Fillies Nursery second Santa Clara again had to settle for the runner up berth, but impressive debut winner Helen’s Ideal caught the eye when staying on for third on just her second racecourse appearance.

Joey Ramsden, as expected, dominated the finish to Saturday’s Listed Highlands Stud Winter Oaks, with his well bred 3yo fillies Fresnaye and Dynasty’s Blossom running first and second respectively. However, 9-10 favourite Fresnaye had to dug down deep to catch her stable mate, with Dynasty’s Blossom having appeared to stolen a break on the recent Listed Highlands Stud Stormsvlei Fillies Mile winner.

Saturday’s meeting, delayed after rain had forced the abandonment of the original Winter Derby meeting two weeks ago, also saw 2016 G1 Vodacom Durban July third Mac De Lago stamp his Algoa Cup claims when scoring for trainer Dan Katz and owner Hassen Adams over 1800 metres.
