Statistics would indicate that BETTER THAN READY is the most prolific sire of 2YOs in Australia.
BETTER THAN READY himself was a late maturing son of MORE THAN READY but curiously, his offspring have excelled as 2YOs.
This season he leads the 2YO sires premiership with 10 wins – at least 6 more than any rival – but the table below is what really sets him apart.
2YO winners from first two crops:
|YEAR 1||CROP 1||CROP 2||TOTAL|
|BETTER THAN READY||2019||23||17||40|
|I AM INVINCIBLE||2014||15||20||35|
|EXCEED AND EXCEL||2008||13||19||32|
|SPIRIT OF BOOM||2018||18||12||30|
|ALL TOO HARD||2017||10||13||23|
His standout performer so far this term is the undefeated dual-stakes winner ALPINE EDGE who is currently second favourite for next month’s Magic Millions Classic following a most impressive win in the Group 3 BJ McLachlan last Saturday.
The BETTER THAN READY x RIDOLFI 2YO colt (pictured) Proven Thoroughbreds purchased earlier this year had his first jumpout this week and was strong through the line (see replay with rider comments below).
