Gr1 Tsogo Sun Sprint winner Chimichuri Run conditioned by multiple champion trainer Sean Tarry, will be returning to his KZN pedigree roots to stand at Bruce Le Roux and Tinus Gericke’s Blue Sky Thoroughbreds operation in Mooi River.
The Drakenstein-bred son of Trippi is the second to go to stud for his sire, out of Gr1 #kznbred Kahal mare, Spiced Gold – herself bred by Greenhill Farm.
With a desire for speed and precocity in South African horseracing, Chimichuri Run who started his multiple Group race career in the colours of Chris Van Niekerk and will complete it in the yellow and purple stars of the Hollywood Syndicate, is without a doubt a very desirable prospect for stud in South Africa.
The smashing chestnut colt who sold as a winning juvenile in training at the Super Sale for R1,600,000, went on to a star studded career which included 46 starts from age 2-5, with 8 Stakes Wins and 20 places, 11 of those Stakes Placed. He is Merit Rated at 126 and earned over R2,2-million in stakes.
His race record and age prove his courage, tenacity and soundness, and he won and placed in Gr1 company over 1000m-1600m.
His dam won the Gr1 SA Fillies Classic at age 3, and finished third in the Gr1 Golden Slipper at 2. She is bred on the successful cross of Kahal and Complete Warrior, from the family of Main Warrior and Sea Siren (both Complete Warrior), whilst the 5th dam is the mighty Majorca.
Spiced Gold has proved herself at stud, with four runners and three winners to date.
Sire Trippi needs little introduction; a winner of five Group races himself over 1200m-1800m, he was the Equus Champion sire of 2015/16 and has sired 80 stakes winners worldwide, including nine individual Grade 1 winners. He is also the broodmare sire of Gr1 winner and producer in America, Liam’s Map.
