MORE Than Ready filly Celebrity Miss is within reach of becoming her sire’s 129th stakeswinner when she lines-up in the Listed WATC Beaufine Stakes (1000mn) at Belmont on Saturday.
The Bob Peters bred/owned mare has the enviable record of 15s 7-2-0 including three of her past four outings.
Celebrity Miss’ value as a broodmare will obviously sky-rocket should she be successful this weekend given her outstanding pedigree.
Not only is she a daughter of an internationally acclaimed sire and fats-rising broodmare sire, her dam Miss Margaret (by Marscay) is a dual Group 1 winner and the dam of Karrakatta Plate winning 2YO, Confront.
Peters and his wife Sue have enjoyed considerable success with More Than Ready progeny notably his WATC Derby/Oaks winner Dreamaway.
More Than Ready has a tremendous opportunity to bag a black-type double tomorrow with Peter Moody’s Ready To Rip engaged in the Listed VRC All Victorian Sprint Final (1200m) at Flemington.
A Ready To Rip victory will se ehis earnings race past the $600,000 mark and take his tally of wins to 9 from 33 starts.
The Gerry Harvey bred 6YO is a direct descendant of the great Denise’s Joy and is a winner of the Group 3 MRC Bletchingly Stakes and was placed in the Group 2 MVRC AJ Moir Stakes, MRC PB Lawrence Stakes and Caulfield Sprint all at Group 2 level.
