Klawervlei Stud’s Equus Champion Sprinter CAPTAIN OF ALL (Captain Al) had the perfect start to the new week when he came up with two smart winners at Hollywoodbets Greyville on Monday.
His two-year-old daughter ENID’S GIRL justified tote favouritism when making much of the running to land Monday’s Gold Circle Racing Youtube Channel Maiden Plate (1200m). One of three winners on the card for Dennis Geerthsen, the Paul Lafferty trained filly powered away in the closing stages, despite her rider losing the whip, to score by nearly two lengths.
Bred by Prosper Stud, Enid’s Girl had finished third on each of her first two starts for owners Mr R J Ellis & Mrs P R Kollnick, Mr J A G Rushton & Prof N Revaprasadu.
She joins the likes of RED ROSES TOO and TROMPIE as promising two-year-old winners for her triple G1 winning sire this season.
Captain Of All’s second success came when his classy daughter LADY CATHERINE captured Monday’s seventh race for Rachel Venniker and Michael Roberts. The four-year-old hit the front 200m from home and stayed on well to score by nearly two lengths. Bred, like her sire Captain Of All, by Riverton Stud, Lady Catherine races for Alf Duncan, with Monday’s win being her fifth career victory in all.
South Africa’s Leading First Season Sire of 2018-2019, Captain Of All also went close to having a big payday when his top-class son LINEBACKER ran second in Saturday’s G1 Hollywoodbets Gold Challenge -while taking his earnings to over R2.287 million.
The champion son of Captain Al has seven lots on offer at this week’s CTS Farm Yearling Sale.
