Summerhill Stud, a world-leader in the field of Thoroughbred racehorse breeding and marketing, recently staged the inaugural Ready To Run Sale Mark II.

This innovative sale was incorporated into the Michael Holmes Bloodstock Ready To Run and Horse In Training Sale held at the Shongweni Polo grounds, just outside of Durban, and aimed to offer the public an opportunity to purchase a range of quality racehorses at affordable prices, on auction.

The secret behind the Ready To Run concept is that prospective buyers have the opportunity to view the horses running before making their purchasing decisions and the Ready To Run Mark II was no different.

The gallops were staged two weeks prior to the Sale at the Summerhill Stud Racetrack in the magnificent Hlathikhulu valley near Mooi River and featured progeny of stallions Cataloochee, Way West, Solskjaer, Kahal, Hinton Wells, Malhub, London News, Muhtafal, Hobb Alwahtan, Victory Moon and Modern Day. iKind Media was tasked with filming approximately 60 lots, galloping at full tilt down the Summerhill track, and editing into a final High Definition (HD) interactive DVD production for local and international distribution.

Congratulations to Summerhill Ready To Run Manager, Tarryn Liebenberg, for turning out a formidable Ready To Run Mark II draft, and may the sale continue to grow from strength to strengh.
