The remarkable Klawervlei Stud bred Captain Lars scored the 20th victory of his stellar career when winning a good race at Ffos Las on Monday afternoon.

Captain Lars

In the process, Captain Lars made it win number eight for the year! In total, the Captain Al gelding has won or placed in

Winner of the 2014 Listed Drum Star Handicap in South Africa, Captain Lars has won no fewer than 15 races since relocating to Britain and has proved a wonderful advertisement for the quality and durability of horse bred by Klawervlei.

He is by Klawervlei’s late champion sire Captain Al, whose major representatives in 2017-2018 included the G1 winners Captain America, Snowdance, Tap O’ Noth and Undercover Agent –to name but a few!

Captain Lars is out of the Polar Falcon mare Polar Charge, runner up in the 2000 G1 Oaks d’Italia (Italian Oaks).

Polar Charge is a three-parts to outstanding sire Pivotal (by Polar Falcon), who was represented by his 28th individual G1 winner this year when his son Lightning Spear captured the Qatar Sussex Stakes. Other major G1 winners sired by Pivotal include sire sensation Siyouni, Dubai World Cup hero African Story, and the likes of Sariska, Falco, Golden Apples, Saoire and Kyllachy.

The regally bred Captain Lars is a full-brother to none other than Klipdrif Stud’s exciting new sire for 2019- Always In Charge.

Captain Al

One of the Cape’s most exciting new stallions, Always In Charge was a brilliant juvenile, whose wins included the G1 Tsogo Sun Gold Medallion at Scottsville.

The brilliant colt, who retires to stud having banked more than R1 000 000 in prize money, went on to be named South Africa’s Equus Champion 2YO Colt of 2015-2016.
