Good Fight Delivers More Stakes Success for NZB Ready to Run Sale
23 October 2023
With the 2023 edition of New Zealand Bloodstock’s Ready to Run Sale now only a month away, racetrack success is coming thick and fast for previous graduates of the world’s leading sale of two-year-olds.
Good Fight (Super One) became the latest addition to that list on Sunday, scoring an outstanding win in Selangor’s RM100,000 Sports Toto Supreme Challenge Cup (1400m). Good Fight was passed in at the 2019 Ready to Run Sale, and he has now had 25 starts for eight wins and three placings.
Overcoming a wide draw in Sunday’s sprint feature, Good Fight was urged forward in the early stages of the race, eventually settling in third as the field reached the end of the back straight.
The six-year-old gelding was still prominent rounding the home turn, but then looked likely to be left behind as Streets Of Fire (NZ) (Echoes Of Heaven) and Xena (NZ) (Proisir) lodged their bids on either side of him and seemed set to have the finish to themselves.
But Good Fight managed to summon another sprint, diving through in between those two rivals and edging ahead to beat them by just under a length.
Now the winner of four of his last seven starts, Good Fight is trained by Simon Dunderdale and was ridden to Sunday’s win by apprentice jockey Tuan Nurwaki Ammar.
New Zealand Bloodstock’s 2023 Ready to Run Sale will be held at Karaka on November 22 and 23.
