New Zealand Bloodstock has catalogued 311 two-year-olds for their Ready To Run Sale which will be held at Karaka on November 18 - 19.
This year's catalogue features the progeny of 98 stallions including New Zealand champion sire Savabeel (Zabeel) as well as Per Incanto (Street Cry), Ocean Park (Thorn Park), Not A Single Dout (Redoute's Choice), Zoustar (Northern Meteor), Exceed And Excel (Danehill), Pierro (Lonhro), Dundeel (High Chaparral) and More Than Ready (Southern Halo). Additionally the first crop of stallions including Belardo (Lope De Vega), Astern (Medaglia d'Oro), Capitalist (Written Tycoon), Flying Artie (Artie Schiller) and Shalla (Invincible Spirit) are represented.
Due to travel restrictions enforced by COVID-19, international buyers are encouraged to participate via the new user-friendly online bidding platform that will debut at the Ready to Run Sale.
NZ-based agents are also available to complete inspections on behalf of international buyers at the Breeze Ups, on farm parades and at the sale complex, with phone bidding another welcomed option by buyers to ensure they do not miss out on the opportunity to secure a two-year-old at the number one sale of its kind.
With significant importance placed on Breeze Up footage for buyers, NZB is pleased to announce this year's clips will be extended to include additional footage prior to the 200 metre mark where gallops have previously been filmed from, with the last 200 metres of their work also filmed and timed. Breeze Ups are set to be conducted at Te Rapa Racecourse on 12 and 13 October, with clips available to view online from 15 October and streamed on Trackside, Sky Racing and Racing.com.
