BREEZE-UPS for the 2016 CTS Emperors Palace Johannesburg Ready To Run Sales start at 11am on Monday, 21 November at Randjesfontein, with a hospitality tent at the Clubhouse and a gallops tent near the road next the track.
Summerhill Stud’s Mick Goss writes ahead of the gallops: “If ever there was a thing called “instant gratification”, it lies in the fact that on Sun International Met Day at the end of January, graduates of this month’s Emperors Palace Ready To Run Sale will already be eligible for a R1million race.
“But that’s not all; our candidates are already subscribed for the usual R2.5million stake attached to the sale itself, together with yet another R2.5million in Cape Town’s version at the end of November 2017.
“That’s a whopping of R6million’s worth of prize money which Cape Thoroughbred Sales are throwing at the mercy of graduates of the auction in two weeks’ time. It’s never been better than this, not even in the heady days when we established a new prize money record for South Africa two years ago of R3.85 million at the Ready To Run, which tells us just how far we’ve come in a relatively short time.
“That’s not the lot though; you’ve heard the old adage “there’s a horse for everyone at the Ready To Run” many times before in these columns, with more bang for your buck than ever before. Prices are down, quality is up and you get to buy from the champion breeders on terms no other sale offers.”
