Tarry’s 300th Stakes Winner On The Board

Another milestone for top team

When Sean Tarry started out at Randjesfontein in the early days of this century with just 16 horses, he was determined to break through in a tough game.

After his 300th stakes winner arrived largely unheralded on Champions Day, he restated that he and his team have always been more focussed on their day-to-day goals than milestones.

“But I am very happy to celebrate that 300 stakes winner milestone with my team, a special horse and a leading owner. I’m very pleased for Richard Fourie, as this was his third Computaform Sprint title,” added the 55 year old

When the Avontuur-bred Rafeef flyer Thunderstruck won the Jonsson Workwear Gr1 Computaform Sprint he marked Sean Tarry’s fourth success in the speed showdown after Carry On Alice (2016), Mythical Flight (2007) and National Colour (2006).

That took him to over 70 Grade 1 wins, and throw in the multiple Horse of The Year accolades, and SA Champion Trainer titles, and his done superbly well!

This week Sean Tarry is at the TBA Sales Complex looking for the next Mrs Geriatrix, and some other big names that he has found over the years.
