The sale traditionally held at Karaka has been the undisputed source of winning 2YO sale graduates in the southern hemisphere.
Over the last six seasons, graduates of the Ready to Run Sale have won 20 Group One races and 135 stakes races. During that same time period, graduates of both Australian two-year-old sales have combined for just three Group One wins and 69 stakes wins.
The last five Ready to Run Sales have produced 36 individual stakes winners, including six Group One winners. Even Europe’s most renowned sales companies fall short of these remarkable statistics. In the same time period, Arqana’s Deauville Breeze Up Sale has produced 34 stakes winners, four at Group One level. Goffs UK has produced 17 stakes winners with no Group One winner from its two-year-old sale, and the combined Tattersalls Craven and Guineas Sales have a total of 28 stakes winners with three Group One winners between them.
Ready to Run Sale graduates earn, on average, 49% more prizemoney than both Australian two-year-old sale graduates combined, with the equal highest winners-to-runners ratio.
