Asian success for NZB Ready to Run Sale

Winners for New Zealand Bloodstock’s Ready to Run Sale of 2YOs flowed in Asia over the weekend with three victories coming at three separate meetings in Singapore and Hong Kong.

Friday night’s Kranji meeting in Singapore produced an emotional victory for the connections of 2012 Ready to Run graduate My Boy Jack (Statue of Liberty).  The Shane Baertschiger trained gelding is named in honour of Singapore jockey Jacky Low who died in an accident last December.

Low was apprentice to Shane’s father Don and was a much respected part of their team.  My Boy Jack scored impressively by more than a length for his first victory third time out.

Sunday night in Hong Kong saw the promising Access Years (Stratum) post a scintillating win for trainer John Size – clocking a speedy 57.27s for 1000 metres.

The 2011 Ready to Run graduate from Lyndhurst Farm won on debut last season before going out for spell after three outings.

Cambridge consignor Lyndhurst is enjoying a stellar run with their Ready to Run graduates with Savvy Nature (Savabeel), Super Ninetyseven (Show a Heart) and Atlante (Fastnet Rock) all victorious in stakes races last weekend.

In Singapore on Sunday night, Ready to Run graduate Warrior (O’Reilly) saluted over 1600m for ex-pat New Zealand trainer Laurie Laxon.
