The Klawervlei Stud bred Equus Champion and five time G1 winner Carry On Alice has been confirmed in foal to reigning Australian Champion Sire Snitzel in her first season at stud at Arrowfield Stud in Australia.
A daughter of Klawervlei’s deceased champion sire Captain Al, Carry On Alice was South Africa’s Equus Champion Older Filly/Mare and Sprinter in 2016 – 2017.
The courageous bay, one of just a handful of thoroughbreds ever to win G1 races at 2,3,4, and 5, banked more than R4.5 million during a career which saw Carry On Alice regularly beat the best of her generation in some of South Africa’s top sprint contests. Her consistency saw Carry On Alice win or place in 24 of her 29 outings.
She won the G1 SA Nursery at two, before landing both the G1 South African Fillies Sprint and G3 Man O’War Sprint at three. Kept in training, Carry On Alice added handsomely to her tally of graded wins by taking the G1 WSB Computaform Sprint at four, and G1 Betting World Cape Flying Championship and G1 South African Fillies Sprint at five (with the latter race being Carry On Alice’s racing swansong).
Trained by Sean Tarry, Carry On Alice was raced by Chris Van Niekerk, John and Dr Jill Warner and Klawervlei.
Snitzel, himself a son of triple Australian Champion Sire Redoute’s Choice, has topped the Australian General Sires List for the past two seasons running.
The Arrowfield Stud inmate is once again clear on the General Sires List for the 2018-2019 season, his
runners having grossed (at the time of writing) in excess of AUS$11.132 million in stakes. To date, Snitzel has been responsible for more than 80 stakes winners, with his progeny having banked more than AUS$112 000 000 in stakes.
Winner of the 2006 G1 Oakleigh Plate, Snitzel stood for a fee of AUS $220 000 this year. He performs his duties at Arrowfield alongside the likes of his very own sire, and Not A Single Doubt (also by Redoute’s Choice).
