200 Horses Gallop On Day-1 Of NZ Breeze-Ups
Almost 200 2YOs galloped at Te Rapa in New Zealand yesterday on the first day of breeze-ups for juveniles entered in next month's Ready To Run Sale. The fastest time of the session came early when Heat 2 finished with a nose finish between Lot 29 (Keeper-Heartache) & Lot 218 Murtajill-Silent Smytzer) running 9.94sec & 9.95sec respectively for the final 200m. With plenty of other gallopers catching the eye with their breeze-ups, among the standouts was a half-brother to recent Melbourne stakes-winner Éclair Big Bang. Breeze-Up clips will be available for viewing on the NZ Bloodstock website and on the free iPad application from 29 October. A further 106 heats are being held this morning at Te Rapa.
