Sean Tarry – different approach
National Champion Trainer elect Sean Tarry will be taking a different approach to the Champions Season this year and also to the Vodacom Durban July.
He will prepare his horses from Johannesburg for their first Champions Season runs and play it by ear from there and he might also run his horses fresh in the July, depending on how safe their place in the field is according to the July log.
Pat Shaw – get well soon
Pat Shaw is recovering from surgery after a procedure. I have been in touch with him and he is making progress. I wish him well and we hope he returns to the track sooner rather than later as he really does inject a great sense of humour to work in the mornings, writes Gareth Pepper.
I was impressed with The Conglomerate
We had a smashing weekend, winning two Guineas. I thought The Conglomerate’s win was seriously impressive. He has surprised me in how much he has improved over the autumn and the thought of running him over his correct trip of ten furlongs is mouth-watering, writes Joey Ramsden.
