More Than Ready , sire of Breeders’ Cup Turf Sprint (gr. IIT) winner Regally Ready, will stand in 2012 for $60,000, up from $40,000 in 2010.

Last year, More Than Ready's daughter More Than Real won the Breeders’ Cup Juvenile Fillies Turf (gr. IIT) Nov. 5, and his son, Pluck, captured the Breeders’ Cup Juvenile Turf (gr.

With nine stakes winners in 2011 and progeny earnings of $6,777,459, More Than Ready ranks sixth on the general sires list.
