Phelan Ready Wins Gr1 Golden Slipper

Monday, 6th April 2009

On the Australian track, Vinery Stud shuttler More Than Ready (Southern Halo-Woodman's Girl, by Woodman) added a Gr1 triumph when gelded son Phelan Ready (More Than Ready-Nancy Eleanor, by Blevic) came from the tail of the field to score a 2.25-lengths victory in the world's richest juvenile race, the $3.5 million Gr1 Golden Slipper Stakes (1200m) for 2YOs at Rosehill Gardens in Sydney. Phelan Ready (ridden by Brad Rawiller for trainers Bruce & Jason McLachlan) defeated the filly Headway (Charge Forward-Chatelaine, by Flying Spur) & the colt Manhattan Rain (Encosta de Lago-Shantha's Choice, by Canny Lad). Phelan Ready (a $150,000 yearling consigned by Kitchwin Hills at the 2008 Magic Millions Premier Sale on the Gold Coast) now has 2 wins (also including January's Magic Millions Classic over 1200m at the Gold Coast) & 2 placings (including last start's Gr2 Todman Stakes over 1200m at Rosehill on March 21 & 2008's Listed Meynink Stakes over 1000m at Eagle Farm) from 5 starts for $3,248,500 earnings.
