NZB Ready To Run Sale Commences Today
NZB’s Ready to Run Sale of Two-Year-Olds commences today at Karaka. With 437 well-trained two-year-olds catalogued, the Sale promises to be an action-packed two days with selling starting at 11am each day. X-rays and veterinary certificates have been lodged with the Repository and are available to view on site at Karaka or via remote access for online viewing by registered vets. The Sale boasts an impressive record of 110 stakes wins over the past five seasons, including 12 individual Group 1 winners who collectively won 19 Group 1 features over the past five seasons alone. Three of those Group 1 victories came during the 2016-17 season with star representative and dual Group 1 winner Gingernuts triumphing on both sides of the Tasman and stable-mate Hall of Fame scoring a Group 1 feature. Further afield, Singapore winners last season were headed by 3YO Sprint and 3YO Classic winner Countofmontecristo, along with Patron’s Bowl and Stewards’ Cup winner Alibi. The statistics have been bolstered further this season with Gingernuts’ victory in the Gr1 Windsor Park Plate, the Gr2 Wakeful Stakes by Luvaluva, and the Garden City Trophy and Jumbo Jet Trophy by Faaltless and Countofmontecristo. A live webcast of the Sale will be available to view on the NZB website from 11am on each day of selling. Click hereto view the catalogue and breeze-up videos online.
