Sean Tarry raised the bar from last term and set a new record for winners in a season when the Mullins Bay mare Wukkin’ Up enjoyed a beautifully judged ride from the front to win the R150 000 Listed Off To Stud Stakes at Greyville on Saturday.
Tarry trained 208 winners for his championship title last year and Wukkin’ Up’s first stakes win clocked the magical 210 this season. The five year old chestnut mare is owned in partnership by Messrs J Shill, M Finlay, L M Nestadt & M Trakman & Sean Tarry Racing C.C. (Nom: S G Tarry).
She notched her 6th win here with 3 places from 12 starts for stakes of R515 250.
The lightly raced Summerhill Stud-bred Wukkin’ Up is a daughter of Mullins Bay (Machiavellian ) out of Mazisi (Albarahin). A strong galloping chestnut mare, Wukkin’ Up kept going all the way to the line under the top-class Anton Marcus to beat her lesser fancied stablemate In Other Words by a half length in a time of 96,20 secs.
Amongst the field was Gr1 placed Frosty Friday and Gr2 Gauteng Guineas winner, Heaps Of Fun.
The winner’s sire Mullins Bay was the best racing son of sire of sires Machiavellian in the world in 2006, and earned a Timeform Rating of 121. A resident stallion at Summerhill, he died in 2015.
Amongst his horses produced has been dual Gr3 winner Viking Hero and Million Mile winner, Gitiano.
