Here’s a man who can honestly claim that everything he has previously touched for the Ready to Run has turn to gold, as he rode last year’s Ready to Run Sales topper the Kahal filly out of Champion Two Year Old, Bridal Paths. This year, he hasn’t been long in proclaiming the best colt to be Majestic Sun’s half brother (by Labeeb), for his beautiful action and considerable intelligence.
“Sbu” is obviously a man who reads the formbook, because his top filly at this stage is half sister to two recent achievers. Ashley McNabb’s Makmymate followed up convincingly on his maiden win at Turffontein recently, while Red Ammo (by Russian Revival) has shown himself to be one of the Highveldt’s best juveniles of the past season with two wins and a 2nd from three starts to date, putting his sire right back into the limelight.
‘Sbu’s’ pick is another Labeeb out of Ashley’s Climbing Rose, who’s clearly going the way of her two siblings.
