More Than Ready colt brings $700K at Inglis
WinStar Farm's More Than Ready appeal on the international realm was on display at Australia's prestigious Inglis Bloodstock Easter Yearling sale, with 12 lots selling for more than $250,000, led by a $700,000 colt.
The southern hemisphere yearling, born in Sept. 2011, was consigned by Widden Stud and purchased by Shadwell Australia. The royally-bred bay colt is out of a stakes-winning Redoute's Choice mare Provence, who is the dam of $1 million earner Admiration.
More Than Ready gross receipts for the sale came in at $5.7 million, third highest of all sires at the auction. His average price for the total of 22 lots sold was $259,050, eight-best of the sale.
