R3MILLION EMPERORS PALACE READY TO RUN CUP

Turffontein, South Africa

Saturday, 2 November 2013

When the sixteen horses go to post for the 7th renewal of the Emperors Palace Ready To Run Cup at 3:30pm on 2nd November, they’ll be racing for the richest Ready To Run prize in the world. In six short years, this brainchild of a small huddle of people around the Summerhill boardroom table, has gone from a half million in its inaugural year, when the two “Zulus”, Umngazi and Imbongi battled it out, to R3million this year, making it the second biggest prize in South African racing. Whilst much can and will change between now and then, the principal protagonists for this year’s field look worthy of the money in a race which has hauled up countless top class performers in its relatively short history.

Looking at the entries for this year, it’s a near certainty that next year’s money will comfortably surpass the R3.5million mark. That’s what they’ll be galloping for this Friday, that’s what we’ll be selling for on the 1st and the 3rd November, and that’s what they’ll be lining up for this time next year, when the top sixteen go to post.

P.S. The latest Ready To Run Cup merit log, tells us that 31 of the top 35 candidates galloped at Summerhill last year. Thirty one. Out of 35. At one farm.
