UPDATES – Escape Artist
June 4th, 2022
Raced over 1750m at Hollywoodbets Scottsville. Anthony Delpech post-race comment: She raced three wide around the turn and stopped badly. She also raced too soon after her last start.
May 28th, 2022
Raced over 1600m at Hollywoodbets Greyville on the turf. Anthony Delpech post-race comment: Richard Fourie apologized for his bad ride on her. He said she would have gone close to winning if he had ridden a better race on her.
April 26th, 2022
297 – ESCAPE ARTIST makes it a double for the Syndicate in the lucky last at the Vaal this afternoon. She was given a strong ride by Calvin Habib to notch up her third career victory.
March 12th, 2022
Raced over 2000m at Turffontein. Anthony Delpech post-race comment: She had a poor draw and it was her first time over the distance. Sean Tarry decided to drop her in and see if she stays the trip. She stayed on up the straight but I feel she needs to go shorter and put the blinkers back on.
March 3rd, 2022
Raced over 1600m on the Turffontein Inside course. Anthony Delpech post-race comment: It was a good run at the weights for a 3 year old. I thought Keagan should have gone for his run on the outside as that’s where the best going was on the day.
January 22, 2022
ESCAPE ARTIST won the first race on the Turffontein Inside course this afternoon. She had a wide draw to overcome, but was ridden to perfection by jockey Keagan de Melo and the daughter of Pomodoro is trained by Sean Tarry. Well done to the breeders Klawervlei Stud.
January 1st, 2022
Raced over 1600m at Turffontein. Anthony Delpech post-race comment: She raced with no cover throughout and she was over racing. She is better with cover and needs to settle.

Comment from trainer Sean Tarry:
I was very happy with her run (2021/12/11). Even though she didn’t take the run well in the soft, she is now sound and doing well enough to be nominated

Raced over 1700m at the Vaal. Anthony Delpech post-race comment: She was very unlucky. She has run two good races since her maiden win.
November 11th, 2021
Raced over 1450m at Turffontein. Sean Tarry post-race comment: I was very encouraged by her first run out the maidens. She travelled nicely, they went past her but she knuckled down and tried to fetch them in the latter stages. I do believe there is a win or two to come from her.
