Roy H Claims Gr1 for More Than Ready

Monday, 9th October 2017

At Santa Anita Park in the US, Vinery Stud's champion shuttler More Than Ready (Southern Halo-Woodman's Girl, by Woodman) celebrated an elite race success when 5YO gelding Roy H (More Than Ready-Elusive Diva, by Elusive Quality) fulfilled the potential he had always shown when scoring by 1 length in the Gr1 Santa Anita Sprint Championship (6 furlongs), defeating Mr Hinx & American Anthem. Roy H improved his record to 5 wins (including the Gr2 True North Stakes at Belmont) and 5 placings (including the Gr1 Bing Crosby Stakes) from 16 starts for $534,765 in earnings. “He always had this ability,” trainer Peter Miller told Thoroughbred Daily News. “As a colt, as a younger horse, he just never seemed to put it together. Once we gelded him and gave him some time off, he just blossomed into a different horse. He’s all business and just a very, very good horse. Hopefully we get to see this horse again in the Breeders’ Cup.”
