Pomodoro Power!

New sire off the mark - Pomodoro

Klawervlei Stud’s young stallion Pomodoro was represented by his first winner when his two-year-old son Lethal Weapon made a winning debut over 1000m at the Vaal on Tuesday.

Dorrie Sham – big win

Bred, owned, and trained by Dorrie Sham, Lethal Weapon was steered to victory by Weichong Marwing, who guided the Pomodoro colt to a comfortable hands and heels win. It was another five lengths back to third place finisher Now And Forever.

Lethal Weapon was produced by the Victory Moon mare Cashmere Mafia.

Pomodoro has made an exceptional start to his stud career, with his first three runners having all either won or finished in the money.

This is a great start for a Derby winner who himself never raced at two!

Champion trainer Sean Tarry, who trained Pomodoro himself, sent out Pomodoro first crop 2yos Royal Italian and Cirillo to finish second and third on their respective debuts and holds both colts in high regard.

Sean Tarry – rates the youngsters

Royal Italian is set to contest a big juvenile race on Sun Met day, while Cirillo (described by his trainer as a classic type) could also face the starter at the 2018 Met day.

One of more than 20 Gr1 winners for seven times champion sire Jet Master, Pomodoro won from 1160-2450m during his illustrious career, and, like leading sire Dynasty, accounted for some of the country’s finest when victorious in the Gr1 Vodacom Durban July.

Produced by Broodmare Of The Year Golden Apple, Pomodoro won or placed in all of the Gr1 Vodacom Durban July, Gr1 SA Derby, Gr1 SA Classic, Gr1 L’Ormarins Queen’s Plate, Gr1 Rising Sun Gold Challenge and Gr1 Champions Challenge.

Pomodoro has five lots on the 2018 Cape Premier Yearling Sale.
