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,”
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
