Klawervlei Stud’s July winning sire POMODORO (Jet Master) continues to impress as a stallion.
The bay recently came up with a classic winner when his talented, Klawervlei Stud bred son RUSSIAN ROCK accounted for subsequent G1 Jonsson Workwear Cape Derby winner LINEBACKER (Captain Of All), G1 L’Ormarins Queen’s Plate winner JET DARK (Trippi) and G1 World Sports Betting SA Classic winner MALMOOS (Captain Al), when he stormed home to win the G1 Cape Racing Presents The Cape Guineas earlier this season.
Russian Rock is one of a growing number of stakes winners for his sire Pomodoro. The latter, South Africa’s Leading First Season Sire of 2017-2018, is also the sire of multiple G1 winner, and Equus Champion, RETURN FLIGHT, G2 Hawaii Stakes winner CIRILLO, G2 World Sports Betting Camellia Stakes winner GOLDEN BELLE, Devon Air Stakes winner CARALLUMA, and Secretariat Stakes hero LEOPOLD, as well as the likes of CORNISH POMODORO, PUTONTHEREDLIGHT, and ROYAL ITALIAN.
Pomodoro also has a number of promising looking two-year-olds to his name this season, including Listed Summer Juvenile Stakes runner up BARZALONA and Listed Storm Bird Stakes runner up SOCIAL IMAGE.

The versatile Pomodoro, who won from 1160 to 2450m, went close to having a feature race double recently with sons CORNISH POMODORO and USHUAIA ran second and third in the Listed Drum Star Handicap and Listed Derby Trial at Turffontein
