The Lammerskraal Stud based mare Sweet Virginia gained a further boost to her already impeccable catalogue page when her son Do It Again won the G1 L’Ormarins Queen’s Plate at Kenilworth on Saturday.
Bred by the Northfields Stud, 4yo Do It Again stormed home to win the R1.5 million Queen’s Plate by 0.3 of a length over star 3yo Soqrat, with standouts Rainbow Bridge, Legal Eagle, Undercover Agent and Snowdance further back in running.
Equus Champion 3YO Gelding of last season, Do It Again has now won five of his ten outings, with his previous scores including the 2018 G1 Vodacom Durban July and G2 Daisy Guineas. Saturday’s G1 win, which also gave Do It Again a berth in this year’s G1 Breeders’ Cup Mile, pushed the Twice Over gelding’s earnings to R4 285 000.
Trained by Justin Snaith, and ridden by Richard Fourie, Do It Again races for owners Bernard Kantor, Nick Johnsson and Jack Mitchell.
A half-brother to Sophomore Sprint winner and multiple Hong Kong G3 winner Strongman (aka Horse Of Fortune), Do It Again is out of the talented Casey Tibbs mare Sweet Virginia, whose six wins included the G3 Final Fling Stakes, G3 Winter Classic and G3 Winter Derby.
Sweet Virginia has a full-sister to Do It Again at foot and is now in foal to William Longsword.
