Get Ready to Run with Te Akau!

Today is the first day of the NZB Ready To Run Sale of 2YOs and it's SO good to be back at the sales at the Karaka complex after lockdown saw last year's sale staged at the Waikato Racing Club with no horses and limited humans!!

We've been busy searching for our next champion - the beauty of this sale is that the horses we select can be up and running and at the races as early as March / April next year.

The team has been busy over the past few weeks reviewing the breeze ups and completing inspections. David Ellis CNZM and Mark Walker, along with our racing manager Reece Trumper, will be at Karaka today and have refined a short list of horses that we are keen to buy.

If a horse we buy catches your eye, be sure to email us directly or DM us on any social media channels - or chat through our LIVE chat (little tangerine bubble on the front page of our website) the team will be on the end of that and reply quickly or email us [email protected]. You also can check out all opportunities as they come available through our Yearlings & Shares page -

This sale has been one of success for the stable - just in the last month: Family Ties ($60,000), Fierce Flight ($45,000) and Inca Belle ($50,000) have all won, all bought from this sale.

One year David purchased only two horses - Hall of Fame and Gingernuts who went on to win four Group 1 races in Australia and New Zealand. Then there was the wildly popular Te Akau Shark who enjoyed Group 1 wins on both sides of the Tasman as well as a heart-pounding third in the Group 1 Cox Plate. Flying Fulton, Singapore's Champion Polytrack Horse of the Year was another purchase, the winner of Group races in both New Zealand and Singapore.

We will certainly be hunting down the next Gingernuts, Hall of Fame, Te Akau Shark or Flying Fulton at this year's edition!

If you are in the Auckland area come out and spend some time with us on today or Thursday - we would love to see you and you will be made to feel most welcome - send us a message or give David a call on 021 925151
