CAPTAIN AL SON LANDS WINTER GUINEAS

Klawervlei Stud’s much missed star sire CAPTAIN AL (Al Mufti) looks to have left behind yet another top class son in the form of ONE WORLD, and the latter impressed yet again when he scored a courageous win in the G3 Winter Guineas at Kenilworth on Saturday.

Under jockey Anton Marcus, One World made much of the running to land the first leg of the Cape’s Winter Series after a protracted duel with the progressive Vardy in gallant fashion.
Trained, like his sire, by Vaughan Marshall, the Klawervlei Stud bred three-year-old has now won seven of only eight starts, with the handsome bay’s previous wins including all of the G2 Concorde Cup, Langerman and CTS 1600.

Owned by Etienne Braun, Ken and Jane Truter and Braam Van Huyssteen, One World’s latest graded win took his earnings to R3 292 500 –and he won’t stop here!


Captain Al went close to having a feature race double on Saturday, with his daughter SHAMROCK WIND running a close second in the Listed Sweet Chestnut Stakes on the same card.

A multiple champion sire, and eight times champion sire, Captain Al’s final yearlings have, understandably, been in great demand this year, and this was the case at last week’s Emperors Palace National Yearling Sale, where Captain Al yearlings made up to R4.4 million.

In total, Captain Al had 14 yearlings gross R15.525 million at the 2019 National Sale, with his offspring averaging an impressive R1 108 929.
