Klawervlei Stud’s multiple G1 winning sire CAPTAIN OF ALL (Captain Al) looks to have a progressive sort to his name in the form of NAVAJO DANCER.

The latter, who ran behind subsequent G3 Godolphin Barb Stakes winner CLIFF HANGER (Canford Cliffs) on his only prior start, caught the eye when he won impressively at Hollywoodbets Durbanville on Saturday.

Under Aldo Domeyer, the Gareth Van Zyl trained Navajo Dancer turned Saturday’s Hollywoodbets Durbanville Welcomes You Maiden Plate (1000m) into a one-horse race as he drew off to score by three and a quarter lengths.┬áBred by Riethuiskraal Stud, three-year-old Navajo Dancer races for Lucky Vest 12 CC.

His sire Captain Of All went close to winning the first two races at Durbanville on Saturday, with the Klawervlei sire’s daughter LOVE SHACK finishing a close-up second, beaten half a length, in the second race run on Saturday.

South Africa’s Leading First Season Sire of 2018-2019, Captain Of All has been responsible for some eye-catching runners this season, with his sons CAPTAIN HINDSIGHT and CAPTAIN ARROW finishing second in this season’s Listed Golden Loom Handicap and Need For Speed Sprint respectively.

The sire of dual G1 winner LINEBACKER has six lots on offer at the 2023 November Two Year Old Sale including a full-sister (Lot 149) to eyecatching recent winner MAJOR APOLLO.
