Trelawney’s nine entrants in the upcoming NZB Ready to Run sale are nearing the end of their preparation leading into the breeze ups to be held next week.

The two-year-olds are currently in the care of Clayton Chipperfield completing their early education, before being transferred to Mana Park where the finishing touches will be applied ahead of sale day in November.

Chipperfield uses both the sand track at his Te Awamutu base, and the Waipa Racecourse to work the horses and get them into the routine of racing life. 

Lot 308, the Mastercraftsman colt has impressed so far in the process and is a standout for Chipperfield.

“He is a nice strong, good looking colt with a smooth action, he shows enough in his work to be competitive on the race track,” he said of the son of Group Two winner La Sizeranne.

The colt has had two pedigree updates since the catalogue went to print.  The half-brother Lucky Profit (Bernardini) has run second in Hong Kong, while another half-brother in Essence Prevail (Teofilo) has run second in Australia.

Lot 319, the Ocean Park colt out of Luna Tudor has also matured well in the preparation. 

“He is a nice strong colt with a good action, he didn’t take long to find his legs and show us his class,” Chipperfield said.

This is a well bred colt being a half to Group One winner Allez Wonder (Redoute’s Choice) and Group Three winner Pretty Pins (Pins).  It is also the family of the talented Tivaci who recently ran second in the Gr.2 Bobbie Lewis Stakes and third in the Gr.1 Toorak.

There are two fillies in the draft, the first being lot 37, the Sebring out of Zoria.  This is the first foal for a half-sister to Oaks winner Lights of Heaven and is a well put together type who moves well.

“She is a real speedy type with a strong action, an early two-year-old type in my opinion,” said Chipperfield.

The other filly is lot 188, a Pins out of Eden Valley who has had three foals to race for three winners, including Vinevale (Flying Spur) who Trelawney retained to race and has won twice for trainers Stephen Autridge and Jamie Richards.

“She is a well put together filly with a nice relaxed motion, she hasn’t taken long to figure things out and we are thrilled with how she has progressed,” Chipperfield said.

Trelawney’s entrants will breeze up on Monday the 17th at Te Rapa, beginning at 9am,  ahead of the auction on November 16 and 17.  For a full list of Trelawney’s horses to be sold under the Mana Park draft click here.
