Templeton horseman Michael House's reputation as a quality preparer of early 2-year-olds was evident again at yesterday's (Monday) 'Ready To Run' Video Trials held in Ashburton. The Templeton horseman produced one of the the quickest juveniles of the day when Amazing Art returned 55.2 (800m) and 25.8 (400m) harness racing sectionals.

House is renowned for getting good 2-year-olds up and running early. Lanercost (10 wins - $109,000), Highview Tommy (eight wins - $411,000) and Fiery Falcon (10 wins - $588,000) were all sold by House at previous 'Ready To run Sales'. And it appears he has another prospective Group One winner in waiting . . . especially if the way Amazing Art stormed home yesterday is any guide.

By Artsplace, Amazing Art is the second foal out of In The Pocket mare Pacing Grace, who won eight races and just over $50,000 for Tony Herlihy. Amazing Art was foaled on December 5, 2007. House paid $24,000 for him at the Yearling Sales.

Thirty-seven 2-year-olds ran the half-mile yesterday as a teaser for the actual 'Ready To Run Sale' which will be held at Addington Raceway on Wednesday October 14. Forty-one standardbreds will be go before the auctioneer.
