2018 Ready To Run preview

Trelawney Stud will be represented by eight Ready To Run two-year-olds at the New Zealand Bloodstock auction this week.

Riversley Park will consign the More Than Ready colt out of Raziyya of Sydney (pictured above), while Diamond Lodge has care over the remaining seven. 

Early education and breeze up preparation of the draft was completed in Cambridge by Diamond Lodge’s Jeremey Whale and Finbarr Leahy, after which they relocated to the appropriate vendor.

The eight two-year-olds offer the opportunity to purchase out of a proven sale, with the Karaka auction producing results far superior in comparison to similar sales in Australia, from a farm with a record of supplying competitive horses.

The draft offers a nice mix of proven and potential sires.  Savabeel, More Than Ready and
Tavistock need no introduction, while the two offerings by Shooting To Win and Atlante are nice types by freshman stallions that proved themselves on the track and are looking for the opportunity to prove themselves through their progeny.

There have been several exciting pedigree updates since the catalogue went to print. 

Epako, a half to the dam of Lot 9, is now a winner in Germany adding to an already impressive winning family on the dam’s side.

Mr Clint has had two further feature placings in Singapore giving a boost to the pedigree of lot 92, the Savabeel colt out of Lagonissi.

Chouxter, who is a half to lot 217 the Tavistock x Ritzy Lady colt, was placed in his second career start for Darren Weir earlier this month and only finished .2 lengths off the winner.  He is nominated for Moonee Valley on Friday this week.

Lot 381, the Ocean Park colt out of Bhiwani, is closely related to Tavidance who has had a win in Australia and ran third in the Listed TCL TV Stakes at Flemington since the catalogue went to print.

It should also be noted that the Shooting to Win x Enide and Atlante x Genuine Offer have both been gelded.

Brent and Cherry Taylor welcome any enquires on the draft (which can be viewed here) and will be at Karaka over the coming week.
