CTS Ready To Run Sale - Friday 22 November 2019

The CTS Ready To Run history. Plenty of feelgood stories of many happy returns on investment.

Our 2017 poster boy Cirillo cost R60 000. He has earned R4 937 750 – and he is only a 4yo.

A year earlier, the hammer fell on globetrotter Yulong Prince for R550 000. He has banked R4,5 million and based at a top stable Down Under, the sky’s surely still the limit.

There are 21 stakes races for 2yo’s in the 2019/20 season with the first on Sun Met day, 1 February. This gives the early maturing graduates the opportunity to earn significant stakes within a short period of time.

All graduates sold will qualify for a R1,25-million race for 3yo’s , to be staged the day after the 2020 Ready To Run Sale.
