Tarry’s Golden Horseshoe 1-2

Durban Gr2 Golden Horseshoe

Sean Tarry is always the go-to man on the big days and the Randjesfontein conditioner delivered the goods again in his inimitable style when he saddled the 1-2 in the R500 000 Durban Gr2 Golden Horseshoe at Hollywoodbets Greyville on Durban July day.

Barend Botes celebrated an exacta in the fairer sex equivalent a half hour earlier, and it was the multiple champion Tarry who enjoyed watching his Gr1 Gold Medallion exacta pair of Proceed (6-1) and Cosmic Speed (7-2) fight things out, with the placings being reversed over the extra 200m.

Craig Zackey gave himself a Hollywoodbets Durban July confidence booster with a balanced effort to get Cosmic Speed home in a time of 83,39 secs.

Proceed was 2,10 lengths behind in second, with Cats Pajamas (50-1) and The Specialist (25-1) dead heating for third.

Bred by Maine Chance Farms, the winner, a half to the well-performed Cosmic Highway (Gimmethegreenlight)is a son of their Oasis Dream stallion Querari out of the one-time winning Silvano mare, Cosmic Dream.

Now a winner of 2 with 2 places from 4 starts, Cosmic Speed has earned R595 000 in stakes. He was purchased for R725 000 at the 2023 National Yearling Sale.
