UPDATES – Lion Of The Desert

November 11th, 2021
Raced over 1600m at Turffontein. Sean Tarry post-race comment: Was a very disappointing run. However, I don’t think he could have done any better than he did, beaten just over five lengths with the ride that he was given. At no time in the race was he settled or relaxed. I feel that we have to put a line through this run.

He showed class to win his first start for the Hollywood Syndicate on the Vaal Classic course today. He is now a two-time winner from just the four starts. The partnership with trainer Sean Tarry has started in the best way possible and may it go from strength to strength. The son of Twice Over was ridden to victory by Winning Form-sponsored Raymond Danielson. Well done to the breeders Klawervlei Grooms Trust.
