Sean Tarry and Across The Ice - August Stakes

And Away They Go...

We were hoping for a Vuma victory this past Saturday and we more than got it, with Sean Tarry once again winning the Grade 3 August Stakes, this time with Across The Ice.

The Western Winter gelding ran out an easy winner, 5.25 lengths clear of the second placed horse, Captain's Secret.

Having won both the August Stakes and then the Emerald Cup last year with The Mouseketeer, the Vuma team is certainly hoping that the yard can do it again!

With Vuma power behind them, we have little doubt that they have every chance.

Congratulations to the Tarry yard and owners Chris van Niekerk and Markus Jooste.

Let's not forget that the Burghley Horse Trials get underway today, Thursday the 30th of August, and we will be holding thumbs for Paul Hart and Harry as they compete over the weekend!
