More Than Great Wins Ming Dynasty Quality

Monday, 7th September 2009

Vinery Stud shuttler More Than Ready (Southern Halo-Woodman's Girl, by Woodman) added a black-type success when favoured colt More Than Great (More Than Ready-Great Temptation, by Luskin Star) scored by a nose in the $100,000 Listed Ming Dynasty Quality Handicap (1400m) for 3YO colts & geldings at Randwick. More Than Great (ridden by Nash Rawiller for trainer David Payne) clocked a course record 1min 21.03 sec (taking 0.03sec off Grand Armee's old record) in defeating fast-finishing fellow colt So You Think (High Chaparral-Triassic, by Tights) & the gelding Exceed With Me (Exceed And Excel-Mehitabel, by Tale Of The Cat). More Than Great (a $70,000 yearling consigned from Vinery at the 2008 Magic Millions Gold Coast Sale) now has 3 wins & 2 placings (including last start's Gr3 Run To The Roses over 1300m at Rosehill on August 15) from 5 starts for $181,200 earnings.
