Never Fear, The Coast Is Clear

If you’re in the sales business, the one thing you need to convince customers to come back is a big horse first time around. There are few people in the sport of horseracing these days who don’t know Brian Burnard, better known as “Buffalo Bill”, who was christened that way after his buying debut at the inaugural Emperors Palace Summer Ready To Run at Summerhill. There was no mucking about that day for “Buff” though, green as he was when he took on the lofty likes of Alesh Naidoo and the late, intrepid Glanville Gardner for the right to own a burly chestnut son of Kahal out of the East Cape Horse of the Year, Coastal Waltz.

You Be The Judge... And Win Lunch For Two At Hartford House

In the lead up to the Summerhill Ready To Run sale, which takes place at the School Of Excellence, Summerhill Stud on Wednesday, 25th October, we thought it might be fun to encourage patrons to view the gallops and choose their favourite to stand a chance to win lunch for two at Hartford House.

Pound For Pound The Best Sale In The Land

Think about this. Twenty-one more Stakes winners in 2016 and 2017. Massive savings in keep costs as well as 3 payments to approved buyers*. And the advantage of “clocking” the gallops. There's no place in the world you get this kind of value. Anywhere.

"For perfect timing, it doesn't get much better than this for many-times champion breeder, Mick Goss. At next week's Emperors Palace Ready-To-Run Sale he'll offer the last progeny of Await The Dawn and to say his progeny are firing is an under-statement." - David Mollett

The Sins Of The Fathers

The Sins Of The Fathers

We all know about “fashion” in the world of racing, the temptation to follow the stock of the “in” stallion. But the truth about our sport is there are no walking races, it’s about running, and none of the good ones know who their fathers are.

The Sun Sets on The "Dawns"

It’s inevitable really, and it just lends credence to the old belief in racing that when you lose a stallion, you can bet he’s on his way to stardom. That looks very much like the story of Await The Dawn, who was tragically lost in a freak accident halfway through his second season at Summerhill.

Best For Last

Like anything worth savouring, it pays to sometimes keep your best for last; this applies to racehorse sales as much as it does to dessert. If it were otherwise, the Emperors Palace Ready To Run Sale would not have arrived at its status as one of the world’s fastest growing Thoroughbred vendues in the first dozen years of the new millennium.

A Breath of Fresh Air: Positive Protocol Press

Let’s face it, it was tough going at the National Yearling Sale, more so on the third day. There were those who complained that the market could not take more than 600 horses in a matter of a fortnight, and there was probably some truth in it. Others complained about the sale being sandwiched between an extra-long weekend and a big race meeting, and there may be a modicum of validity there as well.
