The Klawervlei Stud based champion CAPTAIN OF ALL (Captain Al) has had a good run of late, and the former sprint champion was at it again on Sunday, when Captain Of All came up with an eye catching debut winner at Turffontein.
Captain Of All’s three-year-old daughter IN THE BEGINNING made a mockery of her starting price when flying up late in race 2 (1160m) by half a length. Trained by Joe Soma, In The Beginning was given a well timed ride by Julius Mariba, who coaxed more out of his mount to score going away.
Bred by Keivan Stud, In The Beginning races for Messrs D Chinsammy, E Naicker and MGAS Bloodstock.
Her triple G1 winning sire Captain Of All had also enjoyed success at Mauritius the previous day where his classy son EMBLEM OF HOPE ran out a facile winner of the sixth race on the card.
Emblem Of Hope had shown smart form in South Africa where he finished second, to the very classy ERIK THE RED (Captain Al), in the Listed Cape Town And Western Cape Marketed by Wesgro Summer Juvenile Stakes of 2020.
South Africa’s Leading First Season Sire of 2018-2019, Captain Of All is also responsible for the impressive recent Need For Speed Sprint winner TROMPIE as well as the promising filly KISS ME CAPTAIN– a winner of three of her first four starts.
