AUGUSTA PROUD MAKES WINNING RETURN

THREE YEARS and ten days after she won her first stakes race and after an absence of almost 12 months, tough More Than Ready mare Augusta Proud made a triumphant return to racing winning today’s SAJC Allan Scott Park Morphettville Flying Handicap (1050m).

The Leon Macdonald/Andrew Gluyas trained mare hadn’t faced the starter since blaktype placings in the Listed SAJC Proud Miss Stakes and Group 3 D.C. McKay Stakes behind Catapulted in April and May 2010.
Today’s win was the 5yo More Than Ready mare’s ninth single victory from 26 starts and pushed her earnings closer to $1.75 million.

Augusta Proud was a 2YO of the highest order winning her first six starts including both the Gold Coast and Adelaide Magic Millions 2YO Classic as well as the Group 3 SAJC Marsh Breeders’ Stakes and Listed SAJC Thoroughbreds Stakes.

Augusta Proud is one of 79 individual stakeswinners sired by More Than Ready.
