Who’s topping the logs?
Published: 05 April 2017
Sean Tarry looks well on his way to breaking his own record this season as far as stakes earned is concerned.
At this stage of the season runners from the Tarry stable have garnered R21,804,850 while last season he amassed a total of R27,999,562. If one looks at the position last season as at 5 April, horses from the yard had pulled in R16,464,712. That means in the final four months of the season (the season ends on 1 July) Tarry increased his earnings by around 70%.
Should runners from the yard produce at the same level this time, he could come out with a remarkable R37 million in stake money for the year.
Looking back at his seven winners on Saturday, Tarry saddled 23 runners and they earned R2,294,375 in stakes. Mike de Kock, who came away with the winners of the Grade 1 SA Classic and Wilgerbosdrift SA Classic, earned R2,052,250 on the day. However, if one compares winning stakes alone De Kock’s two winners earned R1,875,000 while Tarry’s seven came away with R1,211,250.
