Impressive winners to have emerged from last year’s sale include the debut winners Cape Royal, Rock Of Arts, Extra Zing and Lonsome Dove, while the R500,000 filly, Emaliyami, scored a facile win at Scottsville recently, blitzing her field to win by over five lengths!
Other flag bearers to have emerged from the 2011 Ready To Run Sale include the classy performer, Indaba My Children. A multiple winner, Indaba My Children ran second in the G3 Godolphin Barb Stakes, where he beat G1 winner Potent Power.
Classy filly, Dylan’s Promise, won two in a row, and beat some top-class fillies when she landed the Listed Devon Air Stakes in the style of a filly going places.
Trainer, Louis Goosen, holds his Ready To Run graduate, Negev, in high regard, and the Stronghold filly looked impressive when she won, second time out, by nearly four lengths! Both Ready To Run graduates Ilha Da Rock and Sweet Destiny were good enough at two to contest the G2 SA Fillies Nursery.
With numerous well bred youngsters yet to race or lightly tried, more high-class performers are sure to emerge from the 2011 Emperors Palace Ready To Run Sale as this sale has an exceptional record of producing world-class runners.
