17 Winners for Better Than Ready
Tara Madgwick - Wednesday May 15
It's been an amazing season for Lyndhurst Stud's exciting young sire Better Than Ready and it got better again on Wednesday when he posted his 17th first crop winner with a Sunshine Coast victory for talented gelding Ready to Roam.

Better Than Ready The Tony Gollan trained youngster was placed at his first three starts including a third in the $500,000 Aquis 2YO Jewel and was long overdue to break through for a win.

He was tenacious inscoring a half head win in the 1000 metre dash as favourite and has now banked over $105,000 for his lucky owners.

A $37,500 Magic Millions Gold Coast March Yearling Sale purchase for his trainer from the Yarramalong Park draft, Ready to Roam is a half-brother to stakes-placed Snipzu and is the ninth winner from terrific producer Pilgrim, a half-sister to Group I winner Arkady.

Better Than Ready has made every post a winner this season and is the leading Australian first season sire by winners. A brilliantly fast son of More Than Ready (USA), he has had a fee increase for this season and stands at $33,000.
