Klawervlei Stud’s triple G1 winning stallion CAPTAIN OF ALL (Captain Al) has been in fine form of late and the former champion sprinter was at it again when Captain Of All came up with a most impressive winner at Hollywoodbets Greyville on Wednesday.
Fourth in last season’s G1 Gold Medallion (when making just his second start), the Peter Muscutt trained CAPTAIN BOMBSHELL was all the rage for Wednesday’s Maiden Plate (1200m) and he duly lived up to expectations.
Under Gavin Lerena, the three-year-old simply blew away his outclassed opponents as Captain Bombshell sauntered to a brilliant over three length win and he could hardly have been more impressive. Captain Bombshell, who will now venture to the Cape for the Summer Season, was bred by Haras Del Carmo and the promising gelding races for Messrs H J Da Silva, B W Hamilton, G A R Sturlese, International Racing Club and Mrs Laura de Haast.
His sire Captain Of All had also enjoyed success over the weekend when his classy son TROMPIE ran out an impressive winner of the Need For Speed Sprint.
South Africa’s Leading First Season Sire of 2018-2019, Captain Of All is set to be represented by his son CAPTAINE MAURICE in Sunday’s Ready To Run Stakes at Kenilworth.
