Impressive juvenile winner for Pomodoro

3rd Dec 2018

Klawervlei Stud’s exciting sire Pomodoro made a cracking start with his first runners last season and the 2012 Vodacom Durban July winner has made a very promising start with his second crop –now two-year-olds.

Return Flight

Pomodoro’s two-year-old son Bound By Duty made headlines at Scottsville on Sunday when landing the first juvenile plate in KZN for the 2018-2019 season.

Bred by the Waterford Stud, the Mike Miller trained colt, who was dispatched the hot 8-10 tote favourite, was always up with the pace in the 800m dash before staying on to post a three-parts of a length win debut victory. It was another 5.25 lengths away to the third place finisher Ardenne.

Bound By Duty, who had previously won two barrier trials, was ridden to victory by Anton Marcus.

He is another tribute to Pomodoro’s worth as a stallion, with Bound By Duty having been produced the Asaal mare Saddle Me Up who, prior to Bound By Duty, had yet to breed a winner!

South Africa’s Leading First Crop Sire of 2017-2018, Pomodoro has made a sensational start to his stud career with his first crop including Equus Champion, and G1 Thekwini Stakes winner, Return Flight, and recent CTS Ready To Run Stakes winner Cirillo. The latter holds an entry for the upcoming G1 Cape Guineas and has already banked more than R1.7 million in prize money.

Pomodoro has eight lots on offer at January’s Cape Premier Yearling Sale –including a half-sister to Golden Slipper winner Desert Rhythm (Lot 6) and a colt out of Dubawi’s G3 Jacaranda Handicap winner Amber Orchid.
