Klawervlei Stud’s triple G1 winning stallion, and former Equus Champion, CAPTAIN OF ALL (Captain Al) made headlines at Hollywoodbets Scottsville on Sunday when his son CAPTAIN BOMBSHELL won the Marula Sprint (1200m) over a high-class field.

Under Siphesihle Hlengwa, the four-year-old kept finding more in the closing stages to hold off favourite, and multiple graded stakes winner, WILLIAM ROBERTSON (Rafeef), and score by nearly a length.

Trained by Garth Puller, Captain Bombshell races for Mr Chintalloo.

The gelding showed tremendous promise at two, when Captain Bombshell finished fourth in the G1 Gold Medallion on just his second start.

Bred by Haras Del Carmo, Captain Bombshell has now won four times, with his previous efforts also including a triumph in the 2023 SABC Sport Durban Dash, where he accounted for such graded stakes winners as GALLA VANTING (Querari) and RULERSHIP (William Longsword).

His sire Captain Of All continues to come up with smart performers with the champion son of Captain Al also the sire of this season’s Listed Southeaster Sprint winner KISS ME CAPTAIN and this season’s Listed City Of Cape Town Sophomore Sprint runner up CAPTAIN ARROW.

South Africa’s Champion Sprinter of 2014-2015, and Leading First Season Sire of 2018-2019,  Captain Of All has five lots on offer at the upcoming Cape Yearling Sale.
