Successful Ready2Race Breeze Ups At Cranbourne
The build-up to the 2019 Inglis Ready2Race Sale gathered further momentum on Friday with the first of five breeze up sessions, where 63 juveniles had their official 200m breeze. The fastest was lot 20 (pictured) – the final breeze of the day – a Better Than Ready x Blessed Anna colt from the Lauriston Thoroughbred Farm draft which clocked a time of 10.37secs. He finished ahead of a pair of Musk Creek Farm colts – lot 39 (Unencumbered x Choose Wisely) in 10.63secs and lot 24 (Bull Point x Brazen Hussey) in 10.65secs. Lauriston’s James O’Brien wasn’t surprised his Better Than Ready 2YO was the pick of today’s youngsters. “He’s always been a straight-forward colt with a good brain, good temperament and has continued to improve with the prep,” O’Brien said. “We were really impressed with how he breezed today, it was really what we were expecting. The times, photos and videos of all of Friday’s breeze ups will be available at inglis.com.au and the Inglis iPad app by Sunday. The Inglis breeze ups continue in Sydney when Warwick Farm hosts the first of two sessions at the venue next Friday. Action then moves to both Taupo and Eagle Farm the following Monday (September 23) before returning to Warwick Farm for a final session on Friday October 18. The Inglis Ready2Race Sale will be held at Riverside Stables on Tuesday October 22. On-site inspections will begin on Friday October 18, which will coincide with a brunch and full catalogue parade at Riverside Stables for all interested participants that morning.
