Captain Al dominates Fillies Guineas
A cracking field of 21 high-class 3yo fillies have been nominated for the Gr1 Avontuur Estate Cape Fillies Guineas.
The entries include last season’s Equus Champion 2YO Filly Along Came Polly (Judpot), Gr1 Golden Slipper vixen For The Lads (Trippi), and recent Gr2 Choice Carriers Fillies Championship winner In The Fast Lane (Jet Master).
Leading sire Captain Al is represented by a staggering five entries – or in other words, nearly 25% of the field are daughters of Captain Al! Captain Al daughters entered for the first Cape Grade One contest are Alascan Maiden, Copiapo, Highly Decorated, Pure Power and Wheredowego.
Captain Al fillies have already made their mark in this race – with Captain’s Lover having won in 2007, and two other daughters, Trinity House and Emerald Cove, having finished second and third in 2011 and 2010 respectively.
