Carnival Results Boost For Ready To Run Sale

The Melbourne spring carnival has provided some important updates for the coming New Zealand Bloodstock Ready to Run Sale of two-year-olds.

Ready to Run Sale graduate Luvaluva (Mastercraftsman) came from the back to score an outstanding win in the G2 Wakeful Stakes before finishing fourth in the G1 VRC Oaks.

Nearly one year on since she was purchased at the Sale for $55,000 her half-brother at Lot 424 is set to be offered at the Ready to Run Sale.


Luvaluva’s Kiwi breeders Christopher Grace and wife Susanna had multiple success on the first day of the carnival with home-bred mare Shillelagh (Savabeel) winning the G1 Kennedy Mile. Lot 134 who is out of a sibling to Shillelagh will be offered at the Sale.

Lot 49 is from the same family as G1 Myer Classic winner Shoals (Fastnet Rock) while Lot 349 is a close relation to the five time winning filly who has had only seven starts.

Lot 174 is a full brother to dual G2 winner Formality (Fastnet Rock) who won his previous start in the Group 3 Blue Sapphire Stakes. He then travelled to Flemington and continued his smart form with a third placing in the G1 Coolmore Stud Stakes.

Sire dominance on the first day of the carnival came from six-time G1 winner High Chaparral (Sadler’s Wells) with his progeny winning two of the feature races. The biggest of the day came in the G1 Victoria Derby when Ace High stormed home for the win, followed by the G3 Lexus Stakes with Karaka graduate Cismontane’s impressive score.

Melbourne Cup day continued the winning streak for the sire of over 100 stakes winners in both the Northern and Southern hemispheres. Undoubtedly the most exciting race of the week, the Emirates Melbourne Cup, saw Rekindling notch up his fourth career win.

Four two-year-old’s by High Chaparral are catalogued at the Ready to Run Sale, while three of his Group winning sons will also be represented.

Ten-time G1 winner and 2010 third place getter in the Melbourne Cup, So You Think has four progeny set to be offered, six-time G1 winner Dundeel will be represented by two of his crop, and G3 winner Redwood has eight two-year-olds catalogued.

Ready to Run graduate Odeon (Zacinto) stepped out for a two-length victory on Cup Day when he sprinted down the straight in the Listed James Boag’s Premium Stakes. There are two Zacinto (Dansili) colts catalogued for the Sale.

Lot 89 catalogued in the upcoming Ready to Run Sale is from the same family as VRC Oaks placegetter Hiyaam.

Emirates Stakes Day will see the last leg of the carnival with four Karaka graduates accepted for the G1 feature. Multiple G1-winning Ready to Run graduate Gingernuts (Iffraaj) is among the names along with Odeon, Antonio Giuseppe (Shocking) and All Our Roads (Road to Rock).
