Back With A Bang

It always helps to have a couple of updates on the eve of a sale, and yesterday's five-and-a-quarter length romp by the Visionaire second-timer Heaps Of Fun for Nchakha Moloi and Sean Tarry was especially gratifying. There are several who saw her victory, who believe she'll win at least three on-the-trot before she breaks a sweat, as good a start as a debutant owner like Nchakha could wish for.

've attended Ready To Run sales all over the world, and remembering the remoteness of yesterday's location and the logistics involved in achieving this, I have never seen a more beautifully appointed venue anywhere

There's an old saying at Summerhill, that the big plus with the Ready To Run is "you get what you see, not what you think you see."

Of Sticks And Stones And Solid Bones

While Summerhill has never been accused of "masking" anything in our twenty eight years of association with the Ready To Run (which was our invention, remember), we remind ourselves that it takes a lifetime to build a reputation, and only five minutes to destroy it.

Another innovation that came with the birth of the Emperors Palace Ready To Run was our annual sortie to the Australian sales, Inglis Premier in Melbourne and the Magic Millions Weanling auction at the Gold Coast.

Count On Us, Because "YOU CAN"

It pays to do your homework sometimes, especially when we think we already know it all. You see, ever since its baptism a hundred metres from the Summerhill Stallion Barn almost three decades ago, we’ve treated the Ready To Run sale as our own; we’ve always seen its outcomes as “one”, rather than a matter of “we” and “them”. When it came to “who” contributed “what” in the way of turnovers, and who turned out the big race winners, it was much the same.

Getting all gooey about a filly...

Yes, emotion is everywhere, but it’s the raw, shouty elation or fury kind, not the drippy kind. But I challenge you to set eyes upon a newborn thoroughbred filly foal, with furry ears and tail, taking its first dizzy steps on unfeasibly long legs, and not murmur “Ag shame”. Not possible.
