Klawervlei Stud’s multiple G1 winning stallion CAPTAIN OF ALL (Captain Al) made news at Friday’s KZN Breeders Awards. His speedy daughter KISS ME CAPTAIN was honoured as KZN Breeders Champion Sprinter Female on Friday.

Bred by the late Kevin Soal, and raced by the Estate of Kevin Soal and daughter Courtney, Kiss Me Captain won the Listed Swallow Stakes last season and also claimed this season’s Listed Southeaster Sprint, where she accounted for such high-class stakes winners as COUNTDOWN (Gimmethegreenlight), RESONATE (Twice Over), and former Equus Champion TEMPTING FATE (Master Of My Fate).

The speedy filly is trained by Michael and Adam Azzie.

Her triple G1 winning sire Captain Of All has been in good form of late, with the former sprint star’s recent winners including impressive two-year-old winner IBHELE.

Leading First Season Sire in South Africa for 2018-2019, Captain Of All has six lots on offer at the 2024 Cape Racing Premier Yearling Sale Powered by Tattersalls including a colt (Lot 53) out of G3 Acacia Handicap/G3 Jacaranda Handicap winner ORATOR’S DAUGHTER (Oratorio), and a filly (Lot 126) from the same family as G1 Breeders’ Cup Mile winner and champion sire LAST TYCOON (Try My Best).
