More Than Beauty made short work of a field of maiden special weight 2-year-old fillies Thursday at Churchill Downs, romping to a 5 1/4-length victory at 4 1/2-furlongs on a fast main track.
The More Than Ready filly, a Clifford Grum homebred, left little doubt who was best as she broke very well, opened up on the turn, then bound home and easy winner in :52.01 on a fast track.
More Than Beauty is out of the Miswaki mare Brown Eyed Beauty, winner of nearly $300,000 and the Spring Fever S.
More Than Ready, a top-10 sire of 2013, is represented this year by current progeny earnings of $2.4 million, led by Grade 1 winner Verrazano.
