Turffontein, Turf, 1400m
2 November 2019

The increase in stakes for this year’s running of the Emperors Palace Ready To Run Cup was the product of a collective spirit of co-operation between all stakeholders, which included Emperors Palace, Phumelela, the Racing Association and BSA.

The race aims to engage the best of the three-year-olds purchased at that sale and in order to achieve that goal, the handicappers will be producing a weekly log of the best performers. The field size will be limited to 16 runners plus two reserve runners. The final field will be determined by a panel appointed by the racing operator.

Topping the first log is Visionaire filly Spiritofthegroove who is trained by Sean Tarry. She is a winner of one race and has placed in three other features. She has a merit rating of 106. There is a tie for second place and that is shared by Gaian Glory, trained by Gary Alexander, and Seemyvision, who is under the care of Roy Magner.

It is also good to see horses from all over the country on the log, including KZN-based Enjoy The View, trained by Michael Roberts, and Yvette Bremner-trained Blushing Bride, who is based in Port Elizabeth. It is also interesting to note that currently 17 of the top 27 on the log are fillies.

All horses will carry 60kg but there will be a Northern Hemisphere allowance as well as a sex allowance of 2.5kg. Entries close at 11h00 on Monday 21 October, supplementary entries close at 09h00 on Monday 28 October with declarations having to be in by 11h00 on Tuesday 29 October.
