Cirillo romps to Hawaii win

Author: admin

Sean and owner Chris Van Niekerk dominated the finish to Saturday’s G2 Betting World Hawaii Stakes (1400m) when their charges Cirillo and Tierra Del Fuego finished first and second in that Turffontein feature.

Pleasingly, their charges were sired by Pomodoro and Skitt Skizzle, both of whom were trained by Sean for Chris.

Bred by Riverton Stud, Cirillo claimed his first graded victory with a commanding, front running win, which saw the Pomodoro colt pull well clear of his rivals to record a facile three and a half length at the expense of stable mate Tierra Del Fuego, who finished a length and a quarter clear of defending Hawaii Stakes winner Zouaves (18-1).
Cirillo, who had been haemo concentrating earlier this season, posted his fifth career win, from 22 starts, in a time of 82.86.

From the first-crop of his July winning sire, Cirillo’s earnings reached R5 176 350 with his well deserved first graded triumph –he had been runner up previously in five other graded races.
