The 2018 Emperors Palace Ready to Run Sale truly offers something for everyone –from buyers looking for quick returns, to potentially high class paddock prospects.

Two lots who fall into the second category can be found at the Ready To Run this year, with Peter Van Schoor and Patterson Racing (As Agent) both offering fillies with superb residual value.
Peter Van Schoor will be represented on the Ready To Run Sale by the well related filly Olivine (Lot 67). A daughter of G1 Gold Medallion winner, and proven G1 Gold Medallion sire, Seventh Rock, Olivine is out of talented National Emblem sired mare Fanzene, whose six victories included the G3 Magnolia Handicap. In turn, Fanzene is a half-sister to dual G2 Camellia Stakes winner Joan Ranger and talented G2 performer Miss Turbulence. This is the same family as exported G1 winning filly Brave Mary, last season’s star filly Takingthepeace and Champions Cup hero African Appeal.

Olivine is bred on the same Seventh Rock/National Emblem cross as former Equus Champion Seventh Plain and she is certainly bred to be quick!

Patterson Racing bring forward the regally bred Tel Aviv (Lot 21), a filly by four times Equus Outstanding Stallion Dynasty –the sire of such champion fillies as Beach Beauty, Bela-Bela, Just Sensual and Lady In Black. A half-sister to a winner, Tel Aviv is out of a Peintre Celebre half-sister to two French group winners, as well as outstanding producer Tonnara. The latter is the dam of two G1 winners, both now at stud, in the form of Ectot (Turf Classic, Criterium International) and Most Improved (St James’s Palace Stakes).

Tel Aviv’s second dam is a stakes winning daughter of legendary sire Danehill and she is directly descended from one of the great mares in the stud book –Gondolette.
