The first CTS Ready To Run log for the 2021 De Grendel Ready To Run Stakes over 1400m has been published. The race is scheduled for Kenilworth on Sunday, 31 October. 

The R900,000 race will be preceded by the R2R Gallops on Friday, 29 October, and followed by the 2021 CTS Ready To Run and Unbroken Two Year Old Sale on Sunday, 31 October. 

The highly desirable race is restricted to eligible graduates of the 2020 CTS Ready To Run Sales and entries will open at 11h00 on Monday, 18 October. Supplementary entries are due by 11h00 on Friday, 22 October, with declarations due by 11h00 on Monday, 25 October. 

The final field will be determined based on merit ratings. For those of the same rating, the number of wins prevails; failing that, a random draw will take place. Horses with less than 3 runs which are still maidens do not qualify for an official merit rating, so therefore cannot be ranked on the log. 

The first log is headed by Allan Greeff's PE-based What A Winter stakes winner Whatever Next (below and bottom), bought for R100,000 at the 2020 CTS Ready To Run Sale. 

Oscar Foulkes and Justin Snaith’s Querari filly Homely Girl, a two-time winner from five starts, is second, with Glen Kotzen’s Bush Tracker (Elusive Fort) completing the top 3, but we are likely to see a number of movements in the weeks leading to the race. 

Here is the log, reflecting the current top 20:
