She won an exciting contest in her last outing. She has taken the run well, and I have nominated her today.

Raced over 1400m at Turffontein. Anthony Delpech post-race comment: I feel the jockey made up ground too quickly at the top of the straight and she had the stop at the finish.

Raced over 1600m at Turffontein on the Inside course in the Listed Syringa Handicap. Anthony Delpech post-race comment: The distance was too far for her. Sean Tarry will bring her back to 1400m or 1200m.

302 – CARALLUMA never looked like a winner until the last 50m. She was hanging badly in her previous start. Sean changed the bit, which stopped her from hanging, and made the difference. She was a given a strong ride by apprentice Joshwin Solomons.

Raced over 1450m on the Turffontein Inside course. Anthony Delpech post-race comment: She was hanging in very badly up the straight. She’s better than that run.

February 19th, 2022
Raced over 1450m at Turffontein on the Inside course. Anthony Delpech post-race comment: She came out the stalls slightly slow and ended up further back then Gavin wanted her to be. It was a very slow run race which never suited her.

Comment from trainer Sean Tarry:
Her comeback run was exceptional. She was jarred up after that run and needs to be given a few days off. Hopefully she will return to work next week.
