Drakenstein Stud’s red-hot young sire One World came up with his 18th first-crop winner on Sunday when his promising daughter Worldcraft won the first race at Hollywoodbets Kenilworth.

Trained, like her sire, by Vaughan Marshall, two-year-old Worldcraft had made a pleasing debut when fourth over 1000m and she duly confirmed that good first effort with a brave performance on Sunday.

Under Ashton Arries, the Klawervlei Stud-bred filly fought on gamely to break her maiden by nearly half a length.

Sunday’s Hollywoodbets Kenilworth Welcomes You Maiden Juvenile Plate (1000m) was another triumph for One World, with Worldcraft beating fellow One World filly Roccapina into second spot.

Worldcraft is out of the Kahal mare Witchcraft.

Her sire, the Met-winning champion One World, has made a sensational start to his stud career and the son of Captain Al is on track to set a new South African record for a number of two-year-old winners sired by a first-season sire in one season.

One World’s sensational first crop is headed by dual G3 winner One Stripe and G3 Winter Nursery runner up Lion Rampart. The Equus Champion had no fewer than three sons entered for the G1 Gold Medallion.

Currently both South Africa’s Leading First Season Sire and Leading Sire of 2YOs for 2023-2024, One World has six yearlings on offer at the Cape Racing Winter Yearling Sale, and 12 lots on offer at the KZN Yearling Sale.
