Tarry Welcomes New KZN Assistant

'Best of luck to Deshone Steyn'

Trainer Sean Tarry has confirmed that his horses are fit and well and that he is looking for some big performances from his charges during the forthcoming Highveld Autumn and KZN Champions Seasons.

Sean Tarry – exciting features ahead

According to reports, Tarry has earned over R10 million in each of the last three Highveld Autumn seasons and he is expected to cut back the current lead of close on R7 million held by the rampant Justin Snaith on the SA Champion trainer table.

In an exclusive chat to the Sporting Post, the multiple SA champion announced that former Charles Laird Assistant trainer Lorenzo Karriem taken the reins of his KZN Sattelite yard from Deshone Steyn, who left this week.

“I want to wish Deshone everything of the best in his new venture. He has been with me since Succesful Bidder’s win in the 2007 Drill Hall Stakes and he has played a prominent role in the yard’s success. A change is as good as a holiday and I hope things work out well for him.”

Sean said that former jockey Lorenzo Karriem would be taking over the day-to-day running of the KZN yard.

“He has had a good grounding of experience with top trainers like Joey Ramsden and Charles Laird and we have a vibrant team ethic and a solid base of top horses and good owners. I want to welcome Lorenzo and wish him success.”

As for the recent Randjesfontein Sale of horses out of his yard, Sean said that he was fortunate to have some young horses coming in to replace the older horses.

“That’s the nature and cycle of the game. We lose a few and we gain a few. I am looking forward to being very competitive in the forthcoming feature seasons. We have the established structure in place and now we just need a bit of luck to go our way on the track,” he said.

    Good luck to Mr Karriem.

    I have a question that I hope someone can answer for me.

    I give an authority to act to a trainer. The trainer sends me an account every month. I pay the account as I believe that the trainer is training my horse. I find out that the trainer has been in Europe for 6 months on holiday and has not been training my horse. Apparently his Assistant has been doing so. Can I approach the NHRA to get my training fees back or a portion of it? Keep in mind that I wanted my horse to be trained by the trainer and not his Assistant. From my point of view, the Assistant is not as good as the trainer. Any advice or comments?

      my advice would be to stop scraping the barrel, and despite your children’s teachers saying there are no dumb questions you seem to have found the elusive dumb question – and all of this from a playground bully!!!

    A good Trainer operates his yard or yards as a business.Asdistant trainer in place does not relieve him of responsibility.Inf you want individual attention perhaps go to a trainer who has 30 horses but is not winning multiple group races every year

    Sean Tarry I expect you to start firing pretty soon, do believe once “Bling” is back race riding there can definitely be an upturn with the stable. Not that sitting in 2nd/3rd place on the National log is bad, just know that the stables high standards will not allow for a challenge been laid down to the Snaith team. This ain’t the EPL with a runaway winner and then the rest. Tarry stables to have a big Autumn Season……..
