The build-up to the 2019 Inglis Ready2Race Sale gathered further momentum today with the first of five breeze up sessions.
On a track rated a Soft 5 at Cranbourne in south east Victoria, 63 professional and well educated two-year-old’s hit the track for their official 200m breeze.
The fastest was lot 20 – the final breeze of the day – a Better Than Ready x Blessed Anna colt from the Lauriston Thoroughbred Farm draft which clocked a time of 10.37secs.
He finished ahead of a pair of Musk Creek Farm colts – lot 39 (Unencumbered x Choose Wisely) in 10.63secs and lot 24 (Bull Point x Brazen Hussey) in 10.65secs.
Lauriston’s James O’Brien wasn’t surprised his Better Than Ready 2YO was the pick of today’s youngsters.
“He’s always been a straight-forward colt with a good brain, good temperament and has continued to improve with the prep,’’ O’Brien said.
“We were really impressed with how he breezed today, it was really what we were expecting.”
“We’ve had some terrific success out of this sale with our graduates. We specifically want to identify horses that we believe can go on and become quality racehorses in the future and win many races for connections.’’
The times, photos and videos of all of today’s breeze ups will be available at inglis.com.au and the Inglis iPad app within the next 48 hours.
