Inglis Ready 2 Race

Reay to race sales such as the Inglis Ready 2 Race are becoming increasingly popular. Yearling auction sales may offer the buyer a cheaper product, but uncertainty still exists about a yearling’s racing ability. The preparation routine can remove some of the factors-but not all of them. There are 226 Lots on offer. I have selected five yearlings which based on pedigree and PRI scores are worthy of consideration.

Lot 76 b or br c So You Think – Dora’s Ready

The cross So You Think and More Than Ready has produced one SW. Cognito won

So You Think: 10xG1 winner now Champion sire


G2 Wellington Guineas. The 4m x 4m matching of Nijinsky should produce no problems. Three SW have this cross. The PRI score is 99.2

Lot 93 b c Deep Field – Forfeiture

Deep Field when matched with Commands mares has produced three SW.

Deep Field: New on the block 22 SW already

  • Cosmic Force won the G2 prestigious Pago Pago and Roman Consul Stakes (1200 & 1100m)
  • Sky Command the G2 Navision (1200m)
  • Rozita two L races over 1400m

The female line is exceptionally strong anchored by the champion mare Denise Joy (Sunday Joy, Tuesday Joy, Joie Denise  etc.) PRI score 94.6.

Lot 140 br g So You Think – Majestic Flute

The cross So You Think and Redoute’s Choice and has produced five very impressive SW.

  • Inference winner G1 Canterbury Guineas (1900m)
  • D’argento winner G1 Rosehill Guineas (2000m)
  • Fasika winner G2 Saphire Stakes, G3 Wenona Girl Quality (both 1208m)
  • Rocket By winner G3 Sydney Stakes (1208m)
  • Illation winner two L stakes (1408,1610m


Overall the cross has a SW/runners 5.49%. The above shows the versatility of So You Think as a sire. He can produce anything! PRI score 96.0

Lot 160 b c Deep Field – Nakataan

Two SW have been produced by the cross of Deep Field to Zabeel.

  • Dig Deep G2 Karakatta Plate (WA Premier 2yo race of 1200m)
  • Sweet Ride G3 San Domenico Stakes 1107m.

The female line is useful and contains Becrux a G1 winner in Canada. The PRI score for Lot 160 is 97.7

Lot 212 b c All Too Hard – Tangerine

The mating of All Too Hard to an Encosta de Lago mare has paid off big time.Alligator Blood is already a five time G1 winner and who will bet against him

All Too Hard : good racehorse and sire. Impecable female line

getting more. Lot 212 has an almost identical  pedigee: Inbreedig to Last Tycoon 4f-3f  and Rolls 4m-4f is matched by Alligator Blood 4m-4f and 4m-4f.

Attendance at the Inglis Ready 2 Race is an interesting experience.


Good Luck.
