Chimi heads fabulous four-timer

Author: admin

After a quiet month, by the stable's high standards, Sean and his yard bounced back to winning ways with an impressive four-timer at Turffontein on Saturday afternoon.
Star of the show was the Chris Van Niekerk owned Chimichuri Run, who defied 62kgs to win a pinnacle stakes over 1160m.

Bred by Drakenstein Stud, the five-year-old entire made it back to back wins, when staying on gamely, under a strong ride from Gavin Lerena to score by half a length.

Chimichuri Run, who headed a notable trifecta for Sean and Chris when finishing first in the 2019 G1 Tsogo Sun Sprint, looks to have plenty to recommend him when he retires to stud. The strapping chestnut is a son of champion sire Trippi (also responsible for this season's G1 L'Ormarins Queen's Plate winner Jet Dark) with Chimichuri Run's dam being the Kahal sired G1 SA Fillies Classic victress Spiced Gold.

The yard's July winning star Pomodoro is having an excellent season with his runners thus far, and the son of Jet Master provided Sean with his first success on Saturday when the Pomodoro filly Social Image romped home to shed her maiden, at just the second time of asking, by six and a half lengths.
Always up with the pace, the Lyle Hewitson ridden Social Image won as she liked for Sean Tarry Racing (Pty) Ltd and breeders, Klawervlei Stud.

Social Image's win was doubly satisfying for Sean, who not only trained Pomodoro but also Social Image's dam Carolita.

The yard also went on to enjoy success with the Al Adaayit bred and owned filly Seehaam (a three-parts sister to the Tarry trained Derby winner Al Sahem), who made it three wins in a row when scoring over 1600m, and Chris Van Niekerk's Elusive Fort filly Senescence. The latter, who was ridden to victory by Joshwin Solomons, made it back to back wins, with the Millstream Farm bred filly looking a progressive sort in the making.
