Timing for the Breeze Ups will remain the same, commencing at 10am both days. 

Each Breeze Up heat will be filmed and timed, with extensive video footage made available for viewing on the NZB website in due course. 

The 2020 edition of NZB’s Ready to Run Sale will take place on 18 and 19 November at the Karaka Sales Centre. 

The number one sale of its kind in Australasia is the undisputed source of winning two-year-olds, with NZB Ready to Run Sale graduates claiming 136 black type victories in the last five seasons alone.

With the upgrade to ultra-fast fibre at Karaka, NZB is now in the position to offer online bidding services for registered buyers who are unable to be physically in attendance.

The catalogue will launch in mid-September. - NZ RAcing Desk
