Ready's Image, a triple stakes winner by More Than Ready who won the Tremont and Sanford (gr. II) stakes at 2, will stand at Walmac Farm in 2009.
Trained by Todd Pletcher for James Scatuorchio and Walmac Farm, Ready's Image won three of his first four starts as a juvenile, including the Tremont by 7 3/4 lengths and the Sanford by four. He won the Sanford in 1:09 4/5.
In his 3-year-old debut, Ready's Image won the 6 1/2-furlong Adjudicating Stakes at Belmont Park shouldering top weight. He retires with four wins, a second in the Hopeful (gr. I) and a third in the Kentucky Breeders’ Cup (gr. III) in nine starts, for earnings of $310,542.
“Ready's Image has that all-important brilliance at two, coupled with good size, being 16.2 hands, and from an internationally fashionable sire line,” said John T.L. Jones III, Walmac's managing director. “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 on his progeny.”
Ready's Image will stand for $12,500 live foal, due Nov. 15.
