Klawervlei Stud’s promising young sire, and former Equus Champion Sprinter, Captain Of All has made a tremendous start to his stud career and the triple G1 winner came up with yet another stakes winner when his two-year-old daughter Springs Of Carmel won the Listed The Citizen Ruffian Stakes (1000m) at Turffontein on Saturday.
The Klawervlei Stud bred Springs Of Carmel made it win number two from just three starts when running out a length and a quarter winner of Saturday’s R150 000 contest.
The filly is out of the Dynasty mare House Of Lorraine, who won five times from 1000-1200m.
Trained by Paul Peter, Springs Of Carmel is one of four juvenile winners for Captain Of All this season, with the sire’s other promising two-year-olds including feature race contender Captain’s Flo, Listed Cape Town And Western Cape Marketed By Wesgro Summer Juvenile Stakes runner up Emblem Of Hope, and Dad’s Catch –a winner of two of just three starts.
South Africa’s Leading First Crop Sire of 2018-2019, and one of nearly 100 stakes winners sired by Klawervlei’s late, great sire Captain Al, Captain Of All made a dazzling start with his first crop headed by G2 TAB/Betting World Dingaans winner Shango and fellow stakes winners Captain Anne Bonny (East Cape Fillies Nursery) and What You Are (Lenasia Rising Sun Devon Air Stakes).
