If there is anyone left out there under the illusion that Ready to Run Sales are largely for the “left-overs,” that impression must surely have been erased for the last time this weekend.

Quite apart for the trail of Graded Stakes winners and Champions that’ve emerged from our Ready to Race programme in the past few seasons, the 2007 Two Year Olds (sold as recently as November last) have already yielded three individual Stakes winners, the latest in this weekend’s East Cape Nursery.

Following REGAL RUNNER (R100 000 purchase) (Storm Bird Stakes Listed) and MZWILILI (R75 000), (Pretty Polly Stakes Gr 3), HAIZI pretty well romped away from the best in her region when the button was pressed by the man that picked her off the televised gallops before the sale. In the process, Gavin Venter emerged as the latest in a line of judges, that’ve found themselves a bargain (R70 000) from this source.

This daughter of KAHAL was co-bred with Irishman Robbie Byrne and his colleagues at Equisoft, providers and supporters of (in our opinion) the best breeding software programme in creation.
