Douw Kruger will be offering a colt by the increasingly successful Pomodoro at this year’s August Two Year Old Sale.
Winner of the 2012 Vodacom Durban July, the versatile Pomodoro got off to a flying start at stud when he headed South Africa’s Leading First Season Sires List in 2017-2018.
Pomodoro’s first crop was headed by multiple G1 winner, and Equus Champion Return Flight, as well as the game Cirillo, who has earned in excess of R5 million in prize money.
Subsequent crops have yielded a plethora of stakes horses including G1 Cape Racing Presents The Cape Guineas winner Russian Rock, and the likes of Golden Belle, Leopold, Cornish Pomodoro, Putontheredlight, and Caralluma.
Pomodoro is represented here by a colt (Lot 18) out of the winning Captain Al mare Heliane. The latter, a full-sister to the stakes placed Captain Dino, has already produced a pair of winners in the form of G3 Godolphin Barb Stakes third High Voltage and debut winner Vertigo Again.
This is the family of Cape Guineas winner Little Ballerina as well as the high-class racemare Trojan Belle.
