More Than Ready Adds US Gr3

Friday, 1st September 2017

At Saratoga racecourse in the US, Vinery Stud's champion shuttler More Than Ready (Southern Halo-Woodman's Girl, by Woodman) added a Group success when 2YO bay colt Catholic Boy (More Than Ready-Song Of Bernadette, by Bernardini) rallied strongly in the straight to score by length for trainer Jonathan Thomas in the US$150,000 Gr3 With Anticipation Stakes (8.5 furlongs) for 2YOs, defeating Irish Territory & Untamed Domain. "He's screaming for distance. I'm impressed with him knowing he didn't get the cleanest trip and he negotiated some pockets and holes and overcame it," Thomas told Blood Horse. "Obviously, the goal would be to get to the Breeders' Cup from here with a possible start in the Pilgrim in between, but we'll see." In becoming More Than Ready's 175th stakes winner, Catholic Boy extended his unbeaten record to 2 wins from 2 starts. More Than Ready is featured in the 2017 Sires edition which can be opened by clicking on the image below.
