Tarry To The Fore!

TAB Gr2 Camellia Stakes

Course and distance specialist Mrs Browning gave trainer Sean Tarry his fourth winner in the first five races on The Championships Finale afternoon at Turffontein on Saturday, when she went from gun to tape under Craig Zackey to win the R350 000 TAB Gr2 Camellia Stakes.

Providing a feature double for the Wernars family’s familiar silks, the 4yo Mrs Browning (17-2) powered home to neat the well fancied Time Fo Orchids (33-10) by 1,15 lengths in a time of 66,68 secs for the 1160m.

Mike de Kock’s perennial bridesmaid White Pearl (3-1) clocked up her eighth-place cheque from 12 career starts, when finding traffic from last, to run a courageous third.

The winner’s stablemate Mrs Geriatrix was never in it and ran last of the seven.

Raced by the Wernars family and Harry Willson, Mrs Browning was bred by Wilgerbosdrift & Mauritzfontein and is a daughter of Ridgemont’s Redoute’s Choice stallion Rafeef (AUS) out of the Galileo mare Miss Galidora (IRE) – the latter placed at 2000m in the UK.

This was Mrs Browning’s second stakes win and she took her tally to 6 wins with 5 places from 14 starts for stakes of R772 875. She cost R120 000 at the BSA National 2yo Sale.

Well done to the Tarry team – after their 300th stakes success with Thunderstruck in the recent Computaform Sprint, they continue to produce the magic – especially on the big days!
