More first crop success for promising Pomodoro

18th Apr 2018

Klawervlei Stud’s exciting young stallion Pomodoro enjoyed a 100% strike rate at Turffontein on Tuesday evening, when his only runner on the night, Royal Italian, scored an eye catching win over 1160m.

In the process, the 2yo Royal Italian became the second first crop winner for his July winning sire in the past four days!

Ridden by Lyle Hewitson, the Highlands Stud bred Royal Italian made much of the running in Tuesday night’s maiden juvenile plate to post a comfortable 1.6 length win.

The consistent colt, trained like Pomodoro by Sean Tarry, has now won or placed in all five outings, with his placed efforts including a runner up finish in the Listed Storm Bird Stakes and a third place in the Listed Tattersalls Summer Juvenile Stakes.

Fourth previously in the G3 Protea Stakes, Royal Italian was a R100 000 buy from the 2017 Emperors Palace Select Yearling Sale.

His exciting young sire Pomodoro has made an excellent start with his first two-year-olds this season.
Other notable juvenile performers representing the 2012 Vodacom Durban July winner include Saturday’s 11.25 length winner Return Flight, debut winner Lethal Weapon and G3 Protea Stakes runner up Cirillo.

A son of multiple champion sire Jet Master and Broodmare Of The Year Golden Apple, Pomodoro is fast establishing himself as one of South Africa’s most exciting young stallions!
