Justify 2YO’s Popular at Ready to Run

The record breaking NZB Ready to Run Sale this week in New Zealand produced strong results for Justify with four two year-olds averaging $306,250.

Top seller for the Triple Crown winner was the Cheltenham Stables consigned filly from well related Fastnet Rock mare Special Memories that made $425,000 when knocked down to Flag Bloodstock.

She is the third foal of a stakes-placed full sister to Group I ATC Australian Oaks winner Unforgotten from the family of French Group I winners Matiara and Indonesienne.

West Australian based Byerley Bloodstock paid $340,000 for the KB Bloodstock consigned Justify colt from Lodi, while Hong Kong based Mr W Leung/Manfred Man went to $300,000 for the Justify colt from stakes-winning Savabeel mare No Tricks.

Justify has had a red letter year siring six Group I winners worldwide and is currently the equal leading second crop sire in Australia by winners.
