Al Mutawakel shines in debut win

Author: admin

Sean had another successful day at the Vaal on Tuesday when the Tarry yard sent out three eye catching winners.
This treble included the Al Adaayit bred and owned Al Mutawakel, who made a very impressive winning debut at the Vaal Classic track on Tuesday.

A full-brother to Al Sahem (whom Sean trained to win the G1 SA Derby over 2450m), 3yo Al Mutawakel was always up with the speed, and despite being bred to enjoy much more ground, romped home to score a first out win over 1200m by an emphatic two and a quarter lengths.

The colt, one of three winners for Maine Chance Farms’ multiple champion sire Silvano on Tuesday, was ridden to victory by Lyle Hewitson.

Lyle also went on to guide the regally bred four-year-old Chariot Of Gold to a stunning eight length win, when the close relative of Pomodoro (whose merit rating had dropped over her last few runs) demolished her rivals to land a FM 74 handicap over 2400m.

Winner of the Listed Oaks Trial last season, Chariot Of Gold always looked hard to oppose in Tuesday’s race, but she can hardly have won any easier. Now a three time winner (and a very valuable future broodmare prospect), Chariot Of Gold, a good third in a competitive assessment plate at her penultimate start, races for Chris Van Niekerk and Sean Tarry Racing CC.

Chris is also the owner of the Australian bred Big Myth, who made all under apprentice Kabelo Matsunyane to win Tuesday’s eighth and final race by a length and a half. A daughter of Kentucky Derby winner Big Brown, the well related four-year-old is out of a daughter of G1 Paddock Stakes winner Mythical Play.

Sean went close to having four winners on Tuesday, with his Missouri just run out of it in the seventh race when beaten just a head by the regally bred Mutrib.
