THE TAMAYUZ 2yo, aka “Jerry” went for a racecourse gallop today at Kempton with another 2yo and two older horses and he impressed rider, trainer and Racing Manager!
This was his first awayday and all part of the education process for a 2yo and he took it all in his stride. Stable five pound claimer, Sophie Ralston was aboard Solario Racing’s chesnut 2yo who went upsides another chestnut juvenile, Thomas Equinas (George Downing), a half-brother to the stable’s seven times-winner, Fighting Temeraire. The two were led by two older horses as they picked up a canter the far side of the track around the six furlong marker.
In the home straight all four were in a line but inside the final furlong the two 2yos began to assert and there was little between them at the finish. However, “Jerry” was going more easily at the line and indeed George Downing on Thomas Equinas felt he was on “the wrong one!”
The Tamayuz 2yo has a lovely long stride and Dean Ivory and I were looking for him to use that around the track as he does on the Harper Lodge Farm gallops. The camera doesn’t lie and the photos clearly show him really stretching out. Dean Ivory was thrilled with his work which surpassed both his and my expectations. Thomas Equinas is a sharper sort and I fully expected him to pull clear but at the line it was obvious which was going the better of the two!
Afterwards, the four had a pick of grass and the Tamayuz couldn’t get enough of the green stuff down him – always a good sign!
The Tamayuz 2yo is being syndicated in 1/12th shares and he is a half-brother to three winners, including the popular grey, Lethal Lunch, winner of six races and rated 90. There are shares available so if you wish to get involved in this very exciting 2yo right from the start, including the naming process, please contact the Racing Office on 01442 877 597 or email email@example.com for more details. The plan is to name him next month.
Oh and if you’re wondering why he’s nicknamed Jerry? His galloping companion and “friend” Thomas Equinas is known as Tom!
