Chimichuri Run oozes class

Author: admin

Sean and his yard look to have a potentially top flight 3yo in the form of Chimichuri Run.
The latter showed his class in no uncertain terms when capturing Saturdayís G3 Spring Spree Stakes (delayed by week) in devastating fashion.

Ridden by SíManga Khumalo, Chimichuri Run was always travelling well just off the pace and the handsome chestnut produced a striking turn of foot when asked to quicken. Chimichuri Run put the 1200m race to bed with 400m left to go and strode clear to post a four and a quarter length win over older rival Premier Show.
Given a hefty rating of 108, it was a really smart effort by the 3yo to down some battle-hardened older rivals and Chimichuri Run looks to have a bright future ahead of him.

It was a second consecutive feature race win for the Drakenstein Stud bred colt, who was making a return to Gauteng having romped to victory in last seasonís G3 Haval Motors South Africa Umkhomazi Stakes on eLan Gold Cup day.
Now a winner of three of six starts (he was also third in both the G1 Tsogo Sun Gold Medallion and G2 SA Nursery last season), Chimichuri Run is now likely to be aimed at some of the bigger 3yo races in the Cape Summer Season. The chestnut son of champion sire Trippi and G1 SA Fillies Classic dead-heater Spiced Gold is owned by Chris Van Niekerk, who had celebrated his birthday the day prior to the Spring Spree.
It was a good week for the Tarry yard who also sent out 3yo fillies Second Request and Saints Alive to win impressively at Scottsville and the Vaal respectively.
