More Than Ready Adds US Gr2

Monday, 4th December 2017

At Aqueduct in the US, Vinery Stud's champion shuttler More Than Ready (Southern Halo-Woodman's Girl, by Woodman) added a Group race success when 2YO US-bred colt Catholic Boy (More Than Ready-Song Of Bernadette, by Bernardini) bounded away for an effortless 4.75 length win in the US$250,000 Remsen Stakes (9 furlongs) for 2YOs, defeating Avery Island & Vouch. Having his first start since finishing fourth in the Gr1 Breeders' Cup Juvenile Turf, Catholic Boy improved his record to 3 wins (including the Gr3 With Anticipation Stakes) from 4 starts for US$314,000 in earnings. “We were really happy with how he exited the Breeders’ Cup and, to us, he galloped out very well in that race and indicated that he wanted more ground,” trainer Jonathan Thomas told Blood Horse. "We came over quietly confident he would show us a little something, but we never expected that".
