Klawervlei Stud’s very much inform sire, and Champion Sprinter, CAPTAIN OF ALL (Captain Al) had another good payday when his sons dominated the finish to Saturday’s SABC Sport Durban Dash (1100m) run at Hollywoodbets Greyville this weekend.
The Dash was won by Captain Of All gelding CAPTAIN BOMBSHELL with another son of the sire, CAPTAIN CASEY, beaten less than a length back in fourth place.
Trained by Peter Muscutt, three-year-old Captain Bombshell was brought by Richard Fourie with a sustained late down the outside of the Greyville track, which saw the gelding power home to score by a long neck, with some very smart sorts in behind him.
The winning jockey said after the race, “He gave me a great feeling. He moved up really well and it was a gutsy win”.
Bred by Haras Del Carmo, Captain Bombshell, fourth in the G1 Gold Medallion at two, has now won three times, with his victories including a triumph over ROYAL MO (Uncle Mo)’s R5 million plus earning son ROYAL AUSSIE.
The speedy gelding races for Messrs Gino Da Silva, Blaine Hamilton and Steve Sturlese.
Captain Bombshell joins the likes of JERUSALEMA RAIN, TROMPIE and CAPTAIN ROCKET as eye catching recent winners for Captain Of All, South Africa’s Leading First Season Sire of 2018-2019.
One of the very best sons of Klawervlei’s late, great sire CAPTAIN AL (Al Mufti), Captain Of All has eight yearlings entered on this week’s Cape Racing Winter Mixed Sale.
