CAPTAIN AL FILLY WOWS ON DEBUT


Klawervlei Stud’s late champion sire CAPTAIN AL (Al Mufti) was responsible for a hugely impressive debut winner at Kenilworth on Saturday.
His two-year-old daughter COUSIN LIZ, who started a 13-15 tote favourite, romped home to score at the first time of asking by two lengths over 1000 metres for trainer Candice Bass-Robinson and jockey Aldo Domeyer.

Owned by Mario Ferreira, the filly, who accounted for some very well bred fillies on Saturday, was a R2 900 000 buy from the 2018 Emperors Palace National Yearling Sale.

The exciting Cousin Liz, who connections hold in high regard, was bred by the Riverton Stud –who also bred the Captain Al sired Equus Champion Sprinter, and now promising Klawervlei based sire, CAPTAIN OF ALL.

The latter was recently represented by his first winner when Captain Of All’s two-year-old daughter WHAT YOU ARE scored over 1000m at the Vaal.


Cousin Liz’s sire Captain Al, who headed South Africa’s Leading Sires Of 2YOs List for eight seasons running previously, has once again been to the fore in major South African races this season, with his feature race winners headed by KASIMIR and ONE WORLD, who provided Captain Al with his third successive winners of the G1 Betting World Cape Flying Championship and CTS 1600 respectively.
