"A Fantastic Journey"

Author: David Mollett

If at the beginning of the year, someone had suggested football star
Lionel Messi would leave Barcelona and that champion owner Chris
van Niekerk would hang up his silks, they would have been directed to the nearest mental facility, writes David Mollett.
At the end of the day, we have to salute Chris for what he’s done for the industry,” said Tarry. “From a personal point of view, it has been a phenomenal pleasure to have a great job with a man who is a thorough gentleman. I can only thank him for all he has done for the stable over the years.”.
Asked which of the many champions who raced in the Van Niekerk colours was the best, the 53- year-old immediately mentioned 2006 horse of the year National Colour.
“We can be proud that we raced all over the world. We had the right horses to compete in England, France, Hong Kong and Singapore. We contested races like the King Stand Stakes at Royal Ascot.We didn’t always come up trumps but got 10 out of 10 for trying.”
Tarry made special mention of the speedy Mythical Flight and talented filly Carry On Alice and it goes without saying he will always cherish the Durban July triumphs of Pomodoro (2012) and Heavy Metal (2013).
