Millionaire and grade I winner More Than Ready, who is scheduled to enter stud in 2001 at Vinery near Lexington, will close out his career in the Nov. 25 Cigar Mile Handicap (gr. I) at Aqueduct. The 3-year-old colt (Southern Halo -- Woodman's Girl, by Woodman) recently ran fifth in the Breeders' Cup Sprint (gr. I), and in the process topped the $1-million mark in earnings.
Owned by James Scatuorchio, More Than Ready has won seven of 16 races. His six added-money wins includes a score in the King's Bishop Stakes (gr. I) at Saratoga this summer. His fee will be announced following the Cigar Mile.
