More Than Ready Adds US Gr3

Monday, 13th December 2010

Vinery Stud shuttler More Than Ready (Southern Halo-Woodman's Girl, by Woodman) added a US graded-stakes success when 5YO entire More Than A Reason (More Than Ready-Sab's Reason, by Sabona) came from last-in-running to snatch the judge's decision in a 3-way photo-finish to the US$100,000 Gr3 Queen's County Handicap (9.5 furlongs) at Aqueduct in New York, to improve on his 3rd-placing in this same race last year. More Than A Reason (ridden by Eddie Castro for trainer Randi Persaud) scored by a head from 3YO colt Stormy's Majesty (Stormy Atlantic-Raffie's Dream, by Raffie's Majesty) with a further neck to 7YO gelding Arson Squad (Brahms-Majestic Fire, by Green Dancer). More Than A Reason now has 12 wins & 20 placings (including 2009's Gr3 Queen's County Handicap over 9.5 furlongs at Aqueduct, Listed Half High Stakes over 8 furlongs at Aqueduct & Listed Albert The Great Stakes over 8.5 furlongs at Saratoga) from 60 starts for US$477,720 earnings.
