Ready's Image, a Saratoga grade II winner at 2, came through with his initial juvenile winner from his first crop of foals. His daughter, Leinan, romped by five lengths at Keeneland April 27 in a maiden special weight race in her debut for owners James and Alice Sapara. Leinan ran the 4 ½ furlongs in :51.31.
Bred in Kentucky by Robert B. Trussell Jr., John T.L. Jones III, and Empire Partners Ltd., Leinan was bought by the Saparas’ Winsong Farm for $80,000 from Oak Lodge USA, agent, at the 2011 Fasig-Tipton Kentucky July yearling sale. Leinan is out of the stakes-winning Green Desert mare Golden Mirage and is a half sister to stakes winners Natural Speed and Willow Bunch, the dam of two stakes winners.
Ready’s Image (More Than Ready —Clever Phrase, by Clever Trick) stands for $5,000 at Jones’ Walmac Farm near Lexington.
