John MotaungJohn Motaung has just returned from riding for Sequel Bloodstock in the USA and is very impressed with this year’s draft for the Ready To Run sale on 2 November.

John selected THEKKADY as his number 1 filly in the build up to the 2007 Ready To Run sale. THEKKADY confirmed his selection by winning the Sunday Tribune Strelitzia Stakes G3 in April this year for Michael Azzie.

John has been with us for many years and has an eye for an athlete; he also picked and rode one of the top sprinters of 2006, FANYANA.

The second of John’s “top 2 fillies” for this year’s draft is ROYAL CANTATA.

ROYAL CANTATA is by Requiem, out of Valkyrie Queen.

Valkyrie Queen is the dam of 4 time winner Green Africa and impressive winner on her first start, Bellagio, a graduate of last year’s Ready To Run sale.
