Slalom Queen impresses on debut

Author: admin

Fresh off a feature race double at Turffontein the previous evening, Sean and his team’s good run of form continued at the Vaal on Thursday afternoon.

The Tarry yard sent out a pair of winners on Thursday, with two-year-old Slalom Queen putting up an eye catching performance when making a winning debut.
Owned by Chris Van Niekerk, and bred by the Lammerskraal Stud, Slalom Queen quickened up smartly in the closing stages of Thursday’s third race, a maiden juvenile plate 1000m, before drawing clear to score a 2.25 length win, over male rivals, at the first time of asking.

A daughter of Querari, Slalom Queen is out of the lightning fast Western Winter mare Blizzard Belle –a former course record holder over 1000m.
Blizzard Belle, a stakes placed winner of nine, is a full-sister to the Tarry trained pair of G2 Camellia Stakes winner Bichette and Darley Arabian winner Pilou and half-sister to the stable’s smart performers Warrior’s Rest, and Sidonie.
The Tarry yard’s second winner on Thursday came when Soft Falling Rain filly Makara justified tote favouritism to get off the mark.
Under a well timed ride, Makara ran on strongly in the closing stages of the maiden plate over 1200m to get up and score by just under half a length for owners Mary Slack and Michael Javett.

Makara, placed previously behind the likes of Gin Fizz, Mill Queen and Sarah previously, was rewarded for consistency on Thursday, with the filly having now won or placed in all six of her outings.
Both Makara and Slalom Queen were partnered by Luke Ferraris, who is riding with tremendous confidence at the moment.
