100% strike rate for Tarry yard

Author: admin

Sean and his team enjoyed a perfect strike over the two days of the recent L’Ormarins Queen’s Plate, with the Tarry sending out three runners at Kenilworth –for three winners.

Following an impressive win by champion Celtic Sea in Friday’s G2 Cartier Sceptre Stakes, Sean sent out two more eye catching winners at Kenilworth the following day in the form of Namaqualand and Chimichuri Run respectively.
Both colts race for Sean’s stalwart owner Chris Van Niekerk, and both Trippi colts were fittingly enough bred by Drakenstein Stud (Namaqualand was bred in partnership with Avontuur).

Last season’s G1 Tsogo Sun Sprint winner Chimichuri Run stamped his G1 Cape Flying Championship ticket with a smart win over 1000m. Under jockey Gavin Lerena (who had won Friday’s Sceptre Stakes for the yard), the four-year-old benefitted from a blinker strike in Saturday’s race, with Chimichuri Run running on strongly down the inside to collar the very speedy Computaform Sprint winner Pacific Trader and win going away by three parts of a length.

The blue blooded Namaqualand had his share of bad luck prior to Saturday’s race, but he impressed in victory as a horse likely to build on this maiden win. Under Aldo Domeyer, the three-year-old kept finding more and went to post a three-parts of a length win while making his Kenilworth debut.

The yard’s success, however, was not confined to Kenilworth this weekend, with Sean winning the first two races at Turffontein with Cornish Pomodoro and Shango respectively.

A son of Sean’s first July winner Pomodoro (whose three-year-olds have been firing on all cylinders of late), Cornish Pomodoro built on a smart second on debut (he had been scratched before making his intended debut) with a fluent 1.3 length win, under Joe Gwingwizha over 1400m on Saturday.

Bred by Mrs Mackenzie, the three-year-old Cornish Pomodoro was one of four winners on the day for owner Chris Van Niekerk. The latter also owns (in partnership with Bruce Gardner) G2 TAB/Betting World Dingaans winner Shango who got up in the shadow of the post to score a narrow win over 1600 metres.

Bred by the Heritage Stud, and now a winner of three of his seven starts, Shango was ridden to victory by Luke Ferraris.
