Ready's Image To Stud At Walmac In 2009
US Gr2-winning 3YO colt Ready's Image (More Than Ready-Clever Phrase, by Clever Trick) will enter stud in 2009 at Walmac Farm in Kentucky for US$12,500 reported thoroughbredtimes.com. Maryland-bred Ready's Image (a US$410,000 yearling at the 2006 Keeneland September Sale) recorded 4 wins (including both 2007's Gr2 Sanford Stakes over 6 furlongs at Saratoga by 4-lengths & Listed Tremont Stakes over 5.5 furlongs at Belmont Park by 7.75-lengths, plus the 2008 Adjudicating Stakes at Belmont, as well as runner-up in the 2007 Gr1 Hopeful Stakes over 7 furlongs at Saratoga) from 10 starts for US$310,542 earnings. Walmac managing director John Jones commented: "Ready's Image had that all-important brilliance as a 2YO, coupled with good size, being 16.2-hands & is from an internationally fashionable sire-line. He was the highest-priced yearling of his year by More Than Ready and, being out of a Clever Trick mare, is sure to put commercial conformation to his progeny."
