Klawervlei Stud’s promising young sire Captain Of All looks to have yet another smart prospect to his name in the form of the promising two-year-old filly Dad’s Catch.
The latter made it two wins from as many starts, when recording a fluent win at Kenilworth on Friday. Trained by Glen Puller, the Ten Einde Farm bred Dad’s Catch ran on strongly under jockey Bernard Fayd’Herbe to romp to a five and a quarter length over 1000 metres, and she looks a very smart filly in the making.
Dad’s Catch had won on debut when victorious over 900m, and the Captain Of All daughter holds an entry for the Listed Summer Juvenile Stakes on Sun Met day next month.
Her sire Captain Of All, South Africa’s Champion Sprinter of 2014-2015, has made an explosive start to his stud career with the former Klawervlei Farm Sale graduate having already supplied the likes of G2 TAB/Betting World Dingaans winner Shango and stakes winning fillies Captain Anne Bonny (East Cape Fillies Nursery) and What You Are (Devon Air Stakes) from his first crop.
His champion sire Captain Al, who is close to registering his 100th stakes winner, also enjoyed a big day at Kenilworth on Friday, with his champion daughter Celtic Sea (one of three winners on the day sired by Captain Al) romping home to a fluent win in the G2 Cartier Sceptre Stakes for trainer Sean Tarry and breeders Wilgerbosdrift & Mauritzfontein.
Captain Of All has nine lots on offer at this week’s Cape Premier Yearling Sale, including a filly (Lot 64) out of a stakes winning half-sister to Klawervlei’s July winning sire Pomodoro and a filly (Lot 98) intriguingly inbred to Captain Al’s parents Al Mufti and Off To War.
The triple G1 winner has a further nine lots on February’s Cape Yearling Sale, including a filly (Lot 74) out of a six time winning half-sister to SA/New Zealand G1 winner Dane Julia, and a filly (Lot 78) from the family of classic winning fillies Alydaress, Russian Rhythm and Shadayid.
