The long weekend will see two NZB sponsored Ready to Run Sale Trainers Series races take place throughout the country at Riccarton Park and Trentham. 

Eight NZB Ready to Run Sale race sponsorships were introduced this spring, as an incentive to support New Zealand trainers to attend the Ready to Run Sale at Karaka in November.

Working alongside partners, NZB will award the winning trainer of each sponsored race the following prize package:

  • A $500 travel voucher towards the 2020 Ready to Run Sale at Karaka.
  • A $600 insurance voucher towards insurance for one purchase at the 2020 Ready to Run Sale, courtesy of NZB Insurance.
  • A Majestic Horse Transport voucher ($150 for a central series race or $300 for a southern series race) towards transport of one 2020 Ready to Run Sale purchase, courtesy of Majestic Horse Transport.
  • A three-month subscription to the Raceform weekly production, including courier delivery.

With the series incentive being well received by New Zealand trainers, five individual winning trainers have already confirmed their support to attend the 2020 Ready to Run Sale including Danny Frye, Mark Brosnan, Jamie Richards, Emma Davies and Johno Benner.
