More Success For Pomodoro

Klawervlei Stud’s exciting sire Pomodoro (Jet Master), South Africa’s Leading First Crop Sire of 2017-2018, has been in good form over the past few days, with the former G1 Vodacom Durban July enjoying success at both Turffontein and Hollywoodbets Greyville this week thus far.

Pomodoro had a 100% strike rate at Turffontein on Tuesday when his only runner on the day, KAPAMA, romped home to a clear-cut victory in the fifth race on the day.

Trained by Brett Webber, the four-year-old Kapama romped home in Tuesday’s 1600m race on the inside track, and put 1.75 lengths between herself and runner up MISS KHALIFA, with the previously unbeaten MABELLA finishing more than six lengths back.

Bred by Dr Ian Heyns, Kapama has now won or placed in 12 races, with the filly unplaced just once in her last seven starts.

Jet Master’s dual G1 winning son then went on to have more success at Hollywoodbets Greyville the following day.
Pomodoro’s three-year-old son COMMAND CONTROL caught the eye when winning a barrier trial on Wednesday, while the Pomodoro gelding OPENSEA spreadeagled his opponents when romping home to a decisive four and a quarter length maiden win when victorious over 1200m on the same day.

Trained by Gavin Van Zyl, the Nadeson Park Stud bred Opensea has now won or been placed in eight of his ten starts.

His sire Pomodoro, whose impressive first crop includes such high-class performers as RETURN FLIGHT, CIRILLO and ROYAL ITALIAN, has a single lot on offer at the upcoming CTS Ready To Run Sale.
