Sean Tarry

Trainer Profile

Sean Tarry

Sean Tarry was born in Johannesburg, South Africa in 1966.

Unlike most trainers, Tarry wasn't born into a family involved in the equestrian industry. In partnership with his brother-in-law, he was the co-proprietor of a juice bar, and decided that he wanted a profession that kept him outdoors more than indoors.

This opportunity came in the form of his other brother-in-law, Damon Rahme, who, at the time, had taken out a horse trainer's license, and as Tarry was looking for a career move, decided to try his hand at being an assistant.

Tarry and Rahme were met with cynicism by the members of the fraternity who claimed they wouldn't succeed, as they weren't 'born' into the industry. But Tarry wasn't deterred, as he felt it would expand his life experience, and it would be something fun to be part of, whether there was a future in it for him or not.

Despite not being born into horse racing, it was always an element in Tarry's life. His late father enjoyed playing the horses, and, at a young age, Tarry's brother, Mark had an ardor for breeding and thoroughbreds, which lead him to become a relatively flourishing racehorse breeder in his own right. He tried to entice Tarry into the world of breeding, but it didn't interest him at that time.

Tarry remained with Rahme for 10 months before moving on to trainer June Casey (not literally, one hopes), where he gained valuable racing experience for the next 18 months. This was followed by an 18 month stint at the Greg Anthony stable, where he had free reins with certain horses, one of them being Divided Loyalty.

Tarry took out his trainers license in 1997, with the full backing of his brother Mark, who at this stage, owned his own team of successful horses.

Tarry has shot to prominence of late thanks to the patronage of powerful race horse owners such as Chris Van Niekerk, Greg Blank, and Lauren Gordon. His horses are starting to campaign overseas and his success must be lauded.
