Samaready bested a top-class field in the 1,200 meter Moir S. (Aus-I) Sept. 27 at Moonee Valley, scoring an impressive four-length triumph to corral the second lifetime Group 1 event for the 4-year-old daughter of More Than Ready.
Samaready is among 123 stakes winners for her sire More Than Ready, who stands the southern hemisphere season at Vinery and the northern hemisphere season at WinStar Farm.
Coming from off the pace to sweep by the field going four wide into the stretch, Samaready drew off in the final 50 meters to leave the field in her wake, stamping herself as the best sprinter in Australia.
Samaready won for the second time from as many starts this year. Overall, she has six wins and third from eight lifetime starts, including her triumph in the 2012 Patinack Farm Blue Diamond S. (Aus-I).
Samaready is trained by Mick Price for a partnership that includes Peter Orton, general manger of Vinery Stud, which has campaigned the mare throughout her career. She is out of the winning Secret Savings mare Samar, a half sister to multiple Australian group I winner County Tyrone.
