Alan Greeff-trained, Whatever Next, proved why he is at the top of the 2021 De Grendel Ready To Run Stakes log, with a superb win in a Pinnacle Stakes over 1100m on the Polytrack at Fairview on Monday.

Whatever Next, in his first run as a gelding and as a three-year-old, flew up from the back of a quality field to win his fourth race from only six starts, and will be high up on bookmakers’ boards when they open the betting for the R900,000 Ready To Run race to be staged over 1400m at Kenilworth on Saturday, 30 October.

Greeff and jockey Greg Cheyne indicated that this was an essential preparation run for the big race, and Greeff said: “We were happy to find this race for him. He will only improve having been gelded recently, so we are very excited about him.”

Added Cheyne: “I was worried about the conditions today, the howling wind and that he was facing a field of this calibre in his first run as a three-year-old. But Whatever Next is good, the best young horse in the yard, and this was a win with a lot of merit!”

Whatever Next is owned by Greeff and wife Glennifer alongside Anthony Williams, who said: “I am blessed to be involved in a horse like this.”

Whatever Next, by What A Winter from Petala, by Captain Al, was a R100,000 purchase for the partnership at the 2020 CTS Ready To Run and Unbroken-Two-Year-Old Sale, and he has already doubled his price in stake earnings.

The 2021 renewal of the sale takes place on Sunday, 31 October, at Kenilworth, and will follow the R2R Gallops on Friday, 29 October, and the race on Saturday.
