Harry Angel Colt Tarpaulin to Add to Family Fortune

Mark Smith - Wednesday July 10

A half-brother to three stakes-winners, the Harry Angel (IRE) colt Tarpaulin has a bit to live up to and showed he is better than Wednesday class when breaking his maiden in the Schweppes Hcp (1200m) at Warwick Farm.

Ridden by Zac Lloyd for James Cummings, Tarpaulin travelled three wide the trip before dispatching his Godolphin stablemate Diamond Firetail (Lonhro) by two and a half lengths with the $1,300,000 Snitzel colt Trunk a half-length back in third.

Tarpaulin finished fourth on debut behind the smart Straight Charge at Randwick in December before coming off a 26-week break to finish second to the promising Tassort gelding Mawjood over 1100m at Warwick Farm on June 26.

“That was very professional. He had the benefit of the race here a couple of weeks ago,” assistant trainer Darren Beadman said.
“Zac kept it simple, and he turned up today a little fitter and knew what it was all about. He put himself in the right spot and won with authority.

“Zac had confidence in the horse and helped him get through the going.

“He went through his gears and quickened up. He is a promising colt.”

Bred by Godolphin, Tarpaulin is a half-brother to the Group II ATC Arrowfield 3YO Sprint Stakes winner and $1.2million earner Aft Cabin (Astern), Group III ATC PJ Bell Handicap winner Multaja (Medaglia d’Oro), and Listed ATC Lonhro Plate winner Veranillo (Medaglia d’Oro).

He is the sixth winner for the Lonhro mare Shelters, a sister to Group 1 BRC The TJ Smith Classic (JJ Atkins) winner Benfica.

Shelters has a yearling Btazen Beau colt named Cavern, a weanling colt by Astern, and was covered by Astern.

Tarpaulin is the fourth 2-year-old winner of the season for Harry Angel (IRE), which stands for $38,500 in 2024.
