Captain Of All Wins Gr1 Mercury Sprint

Monday, 20th July 2015

Star South African sprinter Captain Of All (Captain Al-Serious Side, by Fard) ended his illustrious career on a high when landing the Gr1 Mercury Sprint (1200m) at Greville on Saturday. The rising 5YO will now retire to stand at Klawervlei Stud after scoring an easy 4.5-length victory for trainer Dennis Drier over 3YO filly Carry On Alice (Captain Al-Carry on Katie, by Western Winter) and Horse of the Year Legislate (Dynasty-Champers, by Restructure) in the R750,000 feature. This was the third Gr1 victory for Captain Of All who took his record to 7 wins (including the Gr1 Tsogo Sun Sprint & Gr1 Gold Medallion Stakes) and 4 placings (including the Gr1 Cape Flying Championship) from 12 starts for R2,258,900 earnings. Bred by Riverton Stud, Captain Of All is the first top-flight winner by his sire Captain Al to retire to stud.
