Rich SAf RTR Feature Restricted To Sale Graduates
In what is believed to be a world-first, graduates of Bloodstock South Africa's Emperors Palace National Ready To Run Sale on November 2 & 4 will have the opportunity of racing against sales-only graduates in 2013 in an exclusive event carrying almost $300,000 in prizemoney; the average price of horses at the sale is only $21,000 and training fees are equal to approximately $700 a month. With horse exports from South Africa "about to get easier", Bloodstock South Africa is promoting the idea of "using South Africa as a cheap nursery to test a horse's ability before exporting them to race around the globe". Foreign buyer incentive packages are available.
