2019 Ready2Race catalogue released
16th Aug 2019
The 2019 renewal of the Inglis Ready2Race Sale, to be held at Riverside Stables on Tuesday October 22, has attracted a strong catalogue of 191 2YOs.
The catalogue, which is now available online, features juveniles by leading stallions such as I Am Invincible, Zoustar, Not A Single Doubt, Written Tycoon, Dundeel, Medaglia d’Oro, More Than Ready, Hinchinbrook, Nicconi, So You Think, Starcraft, Tavistock, Spirit Of Boom, Deep Field, Rubick, Shooting To Win, Better Than Ready, Brazen Beau and Holy Roman Emperor amongst others.
Of the entries, 129 are BOBS eligible and 27 are VOBIS nominated, while a number are entered for the Inglis Race Series – those that are not, are still eligible to pay up – as well as the G1 Golden Slipper and the G1 Blue Diamond.
Some key lots include:
*Proisir x Miss Zapper – A half-brother to last season’s dual G1 winning 2YO Yourdeel by high-class miler Proisir.
*I Am Invincible x Fashion – This colt is out of a stakes performed Encosta de Lago mare.
*Reliable Man x Quality Dream – A full-brother to stakes winning, G1-placed miler Hypnos.
*Hallowed Crown x Gladwell – This colt is a half-brother to Hong Kong rising star Buddies, a multiple winner last season.
*Medaglia d’Oro x Plausible – Closely related to Everest contender Classique Legend and Hong Kong promising star Aethero.
*Stratum x Ausbred Friend – This colt is out of a half-sister to multiple G1 winning Hong Kong superstar Able Friend.
“We really are delighted with how the catalogue has come together, with it featuring offerings from a number of the very best horsepeople in Australia and New Zealand who are experts in the development and management of young racing stock” said Inglis’ General Manager of Bloodstock Sales, Sebastian Hutch.
“The Inglis Bloodstock Team, in particular Matt Scown and Will Stott, worked in tandem with a number of our vendors through our yearling sale series to identify athletes for this sale and we are very confident that buyers will be impressed by what is on offer.”
“With prizemoney in Australia alone around the $700m mark and countless lucrative opportunities internationally, there has never been a better time to be involved in horse racing and this sale offers the opportunity to access quality, ready-made racehorses who have already demonstrated their ability in a training environment.”
Inglis is again teaming up with Racing NSW, with the Ready2Race Sale to take place on Tuesday October 22, three days after the running of the $14m The Everest at Royal Randwick.
The timing will again ensure the sale attracts the attention of the world’s racing eyes, which will be firmly planted on Sydney during that period.
The lead-up to the 2019 sale is expanding, with the introduction of a breeze up session at Eagle Farm in Brisbane, to be held on Monday September 23.
It will be accompanied by the regular Cranbourne (Fri Sept 13), Warwick Farm (Fri Sept 20) and Taupo (Mon Sept 23) breeze ups, as well as the alternative session at Warwick Farm on the morning of Friday October 18.
Hard copies of the Inglis Ready2Race catalogue will be available within the next fortnight.
