Ready, Steady, Go – Tarry Celebrates The Double

Sean Tarry celebrated a quick 50-1 feature double at Turffontein on Saturday when the Varsfontein bred Gimmethegreenlight filly Let’s Go Now finished strongly to win the R300 000 Gr3 Mother Russia Stakes.

The feature, formerly the Three Troikas Stakes, attracted a quality field of nine.

Just when the bridesmaid White Pearl (8-10) looked set to break her frustrating run of seconds, Smanga Khumalo got Let’s Go Now (11-2) to find her best finish and the Kestorm Investments owned galloper nabbed the Mike de Kock grey on the post to register a 0,20 length win in a time of 86,37 secs.

The 16-1 Mia Moo, a recent maiden winner and stablemate to Let’s Go Now, finished best of the rest to grab third, a further 2,55 lengths back.

Placed in both the Gr3 HSH Princess Charlene Gr3 Starling Stakes and the Betway Gr3 Fillies Mile, Let’s Go Now was registering her first stakes win and is a full sister to her accomplished Gr1 winning stablemate, Bless My Stars.

The winner is out of the top-class stakes winning Silvano mare Star Express, who won 6 races from 1200m to 2200m.

A winner of 3 races with 3 places from 9 starts and stakes of R394 500, Let’s Go Now is a R540 000 National 2yo Sale graduate.

Enjoy the replay:
