A Golden Apple makes the Day!

Trainer Sean Tarry had a golden day on Saturday when Vuma-powered Pomodoro came home first in the Grade 3 Tony Ruffel Stakes. The three-year-old Jet Master colt out of the Northern Guest mare Golden Apple, bred and part-owned with Sean, by Chris van Niekerk, has now won four out of six starts. The colt placed in both his other races, one of which was the Grade 2 Dingaans on Sansui Summer Cup day in November 2011.

Sean also trains the fourth placed Heavy Metal, also owned by Chris van Niekerk.

Earlier in the day, the Vuma-powered Summerhill bred filly Extra Zero, by Way West, ran second in the Grade 3 Three Troikas Stakes for the yard and owners Messrs Blank, Bott, Nathan and Nestadt.

Our congratulations to the Sean Tarry yard and all the connections - we love to feed your champions!
