Ready To Run second log

The race is on for places in the R1-million Emperors Palace Ready To Run Cup (Non-Black Type) over 1400m on Saturday 2 November at Turffontein.

The race is restricted to eligible graduates of the 2018 Emperor’s Palace Summer Ready To Run Sales.

Last year the race was run under the auspices of Cape Thoroughbred Sales with a purse of R500,000 but the race is now back under the banner of Bloodstock South Africa (BSA).

The increase in stakes this year was the product of a collective spirit of co-operation between all stakeholders, which included Emperors Palace, Phumelela, the Racing Association and BSA.

The race aims to engage the best of the three-year-olds purchased at that sale and in order to achieve that goal, the handicappers will be producing a weekly log of the best performers.

The field size will be limited to 16 runners plus two reserve runners. The final field will be determined by a panel appointed by the racing operator.

As of yesterday, topping the log is Visionaire filly Spiritofthegroove who is trained by Sean Tarry. She is a winner of one race and has placed in three other features. She has a merit rating of 106.

There is a tie for second place at the moment and that is shared by Gaian Glory, trained by Gary Alexander, and Seemyvision, who is under the care of Roy Magner.

It is also good to see horses from all over the country are on the log, including KZN-based Enjoy The View, trained by Michael Roberts, and Yvette Bremner-trained Blushing Bride, who is based in Port Elizabeth.  

It is also interesting to note that currently 17 of the top 27 on the log are fillies.

All to horses will carry 60kg but there will be a northern hemisphere allowance as well as a sex allowance of 2.5kg.
Entries close at 11am on Monday 21 October, supplementary entries close at 9am on Monday 28 October with declarations having to be in by 11am on Tuesday 29 October.
