Meanwhile, South Africa's Equus Champion 3YO miler of 2008 Captain's Lover (Captain Al-Sunshine Lover, by Badger Land) "will shortly foal down for the first time at Drakenstein Stud" reports goldcircle.co.za. Owned by US connections via Barry Irwin's Team Valor International, she is carrying a foal by 5-time Gr1-winning European Horse of the Year Giant's Causeway. A Gr3 winner in France subsequent to scoring in the Gr1 Cape Fillies Guineas in South Africa, Captain's Lover is a half-sister to the 3-time Gr1 winner Ebony Flyer (Jet Master) "and will be covered by Drakenstein's boom sire Trippi this season". The half-siblings' dam (also owned by Team Valor) "is currently in foal to Western Winter and will be sent to Var this season".
