Aust-Bred More Than Ready Son Wins Singapore Gr3
In Singapore yesterday, Vinery Stud shuttler More Than Ready (Southern Halo-Woodman's Girl, by Woodman) added a group success when Australia-bred 5YO gelding Better Be The One (More Than Ready-Common Smytzer, by Snippets) scored a 0.8-length victory in the S$200,000 (A$160,000) Gr3 Saas Fee Stakes (1400m) at Kranji. In an all Australian-bred trifecta, Better Be The One (ridden by Australian jockey Vlad Duric for Australian trainer Michael Freedman) defeated 6YO gelding Apache Crown (Beautiful Crown-Genoese, by Luskin Star) & 9YO gelding Parfumier (Belong To Me-Patou, by Covetous). Better Be The One (a $485,000 yearling consigned by Makybe at the 2008 Inglis Easter Sale in Sydney) took his record to 5 wins (also including September’s Gr3 Garden City Trophy over 1200m) & 5 placings from 11 starts.
