More Than Ready is one of the industry's most reliable sires. Champion Sire in both the Northern and Southern Hemispheres, through the first 7 1/2 months of 2014, he has sired 12 stakes winners, 27 overall stakes horses - 20 in the Northern Hemisphere, and seven in the Southern Hemisphere.
More Than Ready offers superb commercial opportunity as well. In 2014, his two-year-olds in training averaged $192,507, led by a $550,000 colt and $510,000 filly. Down Under, his yearlings averaged $208,254, led by individuals for $748,000, $695,000, and $610,000. His current two-year-old crop and his 2014 yearling crop are arguably his best American-breds, having been conceived immediately following his first two Breeders' Cup winners. His two-year-old stars are certainly serving notice, as he's already sired nine debut winners--six in the U.S. and three in Europe--and three juvenile stakes horses.
