MORE Than Ready unearthed another new Stakes winner when American 2yo More Than Love won the $100,000 Miesque Stakes (Gr.3 8f) on the Hollywood Park turf overnight.
The John P. Terranova II trained galloper becomes the 92nd black-type winner for More Than Ready who has been Champion Sire of 2YO’s in the USA and Australia on multiple occasions.
It was the second win in three attempts for More Than Love which was bred in Kentucky and is a daughter of I’m In Love (by Zafonic) who won four races and was runner-up in the Grade 3 Belmont Athenia Handicap.
Meanwhile, More Than Ready’s latest Breeder’s Cup hero, Regally Ready remains on target for the rich Hong Kong International Meeting in December.
A Group One winner already, Regally Ready secured an invitation to Hong Kong when it became More Than Ready’s third Breeder’s cup winner in the past two years.
It remains only a matter of time before More Than Ready becomes the second Vinery stallion to join the elite ‘100 Club’ whose notables include the likes of Northern Dancer, Mr Prospector, Sadler’s Wells, Storm Cat, Sunday Silence, Red Ransom and Danehill.
More Than Ready’s fortunes continue to soar ahead of the 2012 Magic Millions Yearling sale where the stallion is represented by 31 lots.
Included among the consignment are sons or daughters of Aqua D’Amore, Hasna, Cheeky Choice, Sugar Babe, Portland Singa, Moonflute, Universal Queen, Danni Martine, Confer, Coat as well as the dual Group 1 and Magic Millions winner, Regimental Gal.
Another of More Than Ready’s certain star yearlings is Lot 599, a full brother to Group 1 winner and reigning Champion First Season Sire (NZ), Perfectly Ready.
The colt is from a Danehill half sister to Golden Slipper winner, Belle Du Jour.
