MORE Than Ready galloper Ready To Rip will be aimed towards the Group 2 MRC P.B. Lawrence Stakes (1400m) in two weeks time after recording his second successive win while under the care of new trainer Peter Moody in today’s feature Bletchingly Stakes (1100m).
The former Queensland trained four-year-old made his debut for Australia’s leading trainer taking out the Listed VRC Sprinters Final (1200m) at Flemington on July 7.
Today’s Bletchingly triumph was Ready To Rip’s seventh career win inside 19 starts.
Previous highlights included two stakes placings back home in the sunshine state.
”We’re still learning about him,” Moody said.
“But what we know already is that he’s a very honest, genuine horse with a fair share of ability.
“His owners deliberately missed this year’s winter carnival in Brisbane to give him his best chance down here and he’s made the decision a good one.”
Ready To Rip is one of 99 global stakeswiners sired by More Than Ready who is poised to join the likes of Sunday Silence, Red Ransom, Danehill, Northern Dancer, Storm Cat and Mr Prospector once his ‘ton’ rolls over in the near future.
Ready To Rip is a direct descendant of the immortal Denise’s Joy which makes him a close genetic relative of More Than Ready’s 8-times Group 1 winner, More Joyous.
