The International Sire

Champion Sire More Than Ready is a globally important stallion whose name is recognized in every country in the world that races horses.

One of the youngest in history to attain 100 stakes winners and 1,000 winners, More Than Ready has sired Graded stakes winners in 12 countries, Grade 1 winners in seven. And as perhaps North America's pre-eminent representative of the Halo line, he offers unparalleled outcross potential.
