29/7/2019  23 for Better Than Ready

Better Than Ready’s (More Than Ready) first crop of two-year-old’s continue to make waves on the track, with the Yulong Investments-owned Green Rules (2 f ex Hannigan Rules by Rock Of Gibraltar) making the perfect start to her racing career with a first-up victory in a 2YO Maiden Plate (1100m) at Bendigo yesterday providing the emerging young sire with his 23rd winner. The Nathan Dunn-trained filly, who won a Cranbourne barrier trial on July 1, defeated Rock Prophet (Moshe) by a neck with Acumen (Exceed And Excel) another one and a half lengths back in third. The Lyndhurst Stud Farm-based Better Than Ready holds a two-win margin over Deep Field for the first season sire title (by winners) and is currently lying second to Golden Slipper Stakes (Gr 1, 1200m) producing sire Sidestep (Exceed And Excel) in the first season sire championship race by earnings.
