Tarpins’ grandfather wins Kentucky Derby

I was fortunate enough to receive a comment on my blog the other day from Kerry Nott, the breeder of Tarpins.

Anyway, it turns out Tarpins’ dam sire (that’s his mother’s father for all you non-horsey folk) was none other than Sea Hero, who won the 1993 Kentucky Derby, as well as a couple of other major Group 1 races in the states.

I’ve included the link below. When I played it for Wakes, she was sooooo excited – I think she forgot it was a replay from 15 years ago!

    Hi Kerry

    Tarpins has been back in work for around 4 weeks now. The stable say they are pleased with his work and with how he looks. He had a slight twinge in his hamstring which ended his last prep back in March, and the guys say he looks to have completely recovered from that.

    I’ve put you on my Tarpins email list so you’ll get an email when he’s nearer to a start.
