Gold CircleSean Tarry boosted the fine start he has had to this season by winning the country’s richest sand race Saturday, the R600,000 Emerald Cup over 1450m at the Vaal, with The Mouseketeer who was given a fine ride by apprentice Nooresh Juglall.

The Mouseketeer, a four-year-old Kahal colt bred by Warwick and Karen Render’sBush Hill Stud, had only had one start on the sand before, winning the Grade 3 August Stakes over 1200m, a conditions event, and this followed his win in the Listed KwaZulu-Natal Breeders Stakes over 1600m on the Clairwood turf.

The Mouseketeer received a 12 point raise for that last turf win and was quite well weighted when winning the August Stakes and this could have been why he drifted alarmingly on course Saturday to start at 13-2 after an opening call of 33-10.

However, Sean Tarry had said he would come on from the August Stakes run and would also prefer the 1450m trip and this proved correct. He travelled comfortably throughout from his pole position draw, sitting in second behind the pacemaker Comedy Caravan, and in the straight he gradually burnt off the handy horses with his resolute finish before going on to win by a comfortable 1,75 lengths from the Roy Magner-trained Eastern Cobbler, who ran on well. Comedy Caravan, a Flamingo Park raider from Sean Miller’s yard, stayed on to be a further 3,25 lengths back in third while the Scott Kenny-trained topweight Sayadaw produced his usual devastating finish from last place to finish fourth.

The Mouseketeer is owned by well known television presenter, Neil Andrews, along with Francois Diedrechsen.
