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, More Than Ready has sired Graded stakes winners in 12 countries, and Grade 1 winners in seven. He recently joined an exclusive roster of stallions--led by Northern Dancer, Mr. Prospector, and Sadler's Wells--who have sired 1,000 career winners. And as perhaps North America's preeminent representative of the Halo line, he offers unparalleled outcross potential. A listing of his accomplishments includes:
- 120 stakes winners - 2nd best among all active North American sires
- 219 stakes horses from 125 different broodmare sires
- 53 Group/Graded SWs, 15 Group/Grade 1 winners
- Three Breeders' Cup winners of the past three years
- Six millionaires, four champions
- 14 stakes victories Feb. 23 to May 14
- 14 SWs in 2013, Northern and Southern hemispheres combined, incl. VERRAZANO (G1), holder of the best Beyer on dirt by a 3yo colt
- Worldwide progeny earnings of $97,200,000
More Than Ready is one of the industry's most reliable Leading Sires. Champion Juvenile Sire in North America in 2010, he has averaged 19 two-year-old winners and seven two-year-old stakes horses each year since his freshman season. For the past seven years, he has averaged 13 stakes winners and $5,800,000 on the General Sires List. In 2013, he ranks among the nation's top 9 Leading Sires.
More Than Ready offers superb commercial opportunity as well. In 2013, he sired the Day One Session Topper at the 2013 Tattersalls Breeze-Up Sale (U.S. $516,129), and $700,000 and $600,000 yearlings at the Inglis yearling sale. His 2013 in-foal mares are averaging $191,667, following 2012 yearlings who averaged $186,531 worldwide (based on a $30,000 fee) and weanlings who averaged $147,708 worldwide ($40,000 fee). His 2013 yearling crop and his current in utero crop are perhaps his best American-breds to date, having been conceived immediately following his first two Breeders' Cup winners.
