Ready's Image Sires First Stakes Winner
In Canada, NSW Lincoln Farm shuttler Ready's Image (More Than Ready-Clever Phrase, by Clever Trick) ticked the 'stakes-winner' box when juvenile filly Leinan (Ready's Image–Golden Mirage, by Green Desert) scored by 1-length in the C$155,000 Listed Glorious Song Stakes (1400m) for 2YO fillies. Reeling in favoured runaway leader Mechaya & Goldstrike Glory (who also passed the favourite), Leinan's victory was fitting, given that she had been the first winner for her sire. Ready's Image (standing the 2012 southern hemisphere season at Lincoln Farm for $5,500) currently has 7 individual winners from his first 18 runners.
