NOTABLE NEWS



Klawervlei Stud’s exciting young stallion POMODORO (Jet Master) has been in good form of late, and the former Vodacom Durban July winner was at it again this weekend.

Pomodoro had a pair of winners on Turffontein’s inside track on Saturday, with his son LEOPOLD winning the day’s second race and daughter INVISIBLE landing race four.

Trained by Johan Janse Van Vuuren, three-year-old Leopold got off the mark at just the second time of asking, when the Ridgemont Highlands bred gelding ran out a cosy half length winner over 1200 metres on Saturday.
Leopold, who was steered to victory by Deon Sampson, races for Green Street Bloodstock in partnership with Messrs Hall, Haralambous, Joannides and J & L Wernars.

Leopold

Leopold’s paternal half-sister Invisible provided Pomodoro with yet another winner on the day, when that three-year-old filly Invisible got off the mark in emphatic fashion.
The Klawervlei Stud bred filly strode clear, under in-form jockey Raymond Danielson, to win by a length and a half over 1600m.
A good second on debut, Invisible races for trainer Sean Tarry and owner Chris Van Niekerk –who not only raced Pomodoro so successfully but who are also now enjoying tremendous success with their July winner’s progeny.

Invisible

South Africa’s Leading First Crop Sire of 2017-2018, Pomodoro made an instant impression with his first runners headed by Equus Champion RETURN FLIGHT and R4.9 million plus earner CIRILLO, while his second crop include G2 Durban Golden Horseshoe runner up PUTONTHEREDLIGHT and smart recent debut winner GOLDEN BELLE.

He has two lots on offer at the 2019 Emperors Palace Ready To Run Sale.
