Captain of All (by Captain Al)
South Africa’s Champion Sprinter of 2014-2015, Captain Of All is now one of South Africa’s most promising stallions.
He was South Africa’s Leading First Crop Sire of 2018-2019, and bids to follow in the footsteps of his multiple champion sire Captain Al in becoming a top-class South African bred sire.
Captain Of All’s first crop has produced four black type horses thus far, headed by G2 TAB/Betting World Dingaans winner Shango and the stakes winning fillies Captain Anne Bonny and What You Are.
His second crop also looks promising, and is headed by G2 Pospack SA Fillies Nursery/The Citizen Ruffian Stakes heroine Springs Of Carmel, as well as the stakes placed pair of Captain’s Flo and Emblem Of Hope.
One of more than 100 stakes winners sired by Captain Al, Captain Of All is one of the best sprinters to have ever graced the South African turf.
He won seven of his 12 starts, while banking more than R2.2 million in stakes, with Captain Of All capturing all of the G1 Mercury Sprint, G1 Tsogo Sun Sprint, G1 Gold Medallion and G2 Diadem Stakes.
The Riverton Stud bred bay put up a smashing performance when he won the G1 Mercury Sprint of 2015 by four and a half lengths -leaving champions Carry On Alice (also by Captain Al) and Legislate struggling in his wake
