Ready2Race breeze ups begin with successful Cranbourne session
Media Release - Friday September 13
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 (pictured) – 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.

The Inglis breeze ups continue next week in Sydney when Warwick Farm hosts the first of two sessions at the venue on Friday.

Action then moves to both Taupo and Eagle Farm the following Monday (September 23) before returning to Warwick Farm for a final session on Friday October 18.

The Inglis Ready2Race Sale will be held at Riverside Stables on Tuesday October 22.

On-site inspections will begin on Friday October 18, which will coincide with a brunch and full catalogue parade at Riverside Stables for all interested participants that morning.
