Sean Tarry Racing Stables


Redberry Lane, Celtic Sea shine

Author: admin

Sean and his team enjoyed a truly Super Saturday this weekend, with the yard being represented by a trio of winners, notably a pair of graded winners at Greyville on Vodacom Durban July day.

Star of the show was the Lammerskraal Stud bred and owned four-year-old Redberry Lane, who picked up the first G1 victory of her career when landing the G1 Jonsson Workwear Garden Province Stakes over hot pot favourite Snowdance.

Lyle Hewitson, yet again, produced a superb ride on last out Syringa Handicap winner Redberry Lane, who got up close to home to deny multiple G1 winner Snowdance victory by a short head.

Formerly something of a bridesmaid, Redberry Lane, an own sister to dual Guineas winner Solo Traveller, will now be an extremely valuable broodmare when she retires to the paddocks.

Sean, who had previously won the Garden Province with Happy Archer, also won the Golden Slipper (for a second year running!) when the Beck owned two-year-old Celtic Sea overcame a torrid passage to pick up the second feature race win of her career. The filly had previously won the G3 Pretty Polly Stakes, and the Captain Al filly clearly ranks among the leaders of her generation thus far.

Bred by Wilgerbosdrift & Mauritzfontein, Celtic Sea, runner up previously in the G1 Allan Robertson Championship, dug down deep under jockey SíManga Khumalo to land the Golden Slipper by a short neck from Mazari.
Former stable star and July winner Pomodoro looks to have a really nice sort on his hands in the forn of Cirillo. That Riverton Stud bred 2yo romped to a second consecutive win when landing a juvenile plate over 1400m at Turffontein on Saturday for Sean and owner Chris Van Niekerk.
