UPDATES – Ushuaia
September 2nd, 2022
334 – USHUAIA won Race 6 over 1400m at Fairview Racecourse. He looked an absolute picture going to the start and came back in style. The son of Pomdoro was ridden to victory by Winning Form-sponsored Richard Fourie and is trained by Alan Greeff. Well Done to the breeders Haras Del Carmo.
Anthony Delpech post-race comment: Good win, he looks like he should go on and win some more races on that performance.

Raced over 2600m at Turffontein on the Inside course. Anthony Delpech post-race comment: Very poor run, but Sean did say it was too far for him and he needed the run.
March 17th, 2022
Raced over 1500m at the Vaal. Anthony Delpech post-race comment: He moved up at the 500m and then stopped badly. He looked like he needed the run and Sean Tarry had stated that before the race. He will improve with this run.

He was returning from a 16-week break, during which time he was gelded. He took his place in a 1500m on the Vaal Classic course. The son of Pomodoro showed signs of needing the outing and is looking for further. He will come on with this run under the belt and should have plenty of improvement to come.
