Very Cherry is a quality looking mare by brilliant broodmare sire Anabaa and is in foal to Champion Sire MORE THAN READY.

Clearly a talented race filly, Very Cherry was a two time winner over 1200m and 1500m and was a very impressive 3rd in the Listed VRC Gibson Carmichael Stakes. She has passed on her ability to her progeny as she has had one foal to race, a filly by Toorak Toff who is already a winner and a 2nd in Metropolitan company. This is indicative of the class and ability Very Cherry is passing on to her progeny. Very Cherry also has two colts by SNITZEL who have yet to run making her an extremely exciting broodmare.

Very Cherry has proven that she throws quality looking stock with her snitzel colt making $460,000 when snapped up by leading Hong Kong bloodstock agent George Moore.

In foal to World Class stallion MORE THAN READY, who has for many years consistently produced champion after champion including , MORE JOYOUS (8 time Group 1 Winner), SAMAREADY ( MRC Blue Diamond GR 1), SEBRING (STC Golden Slipper GR 1), PHELAN READY (STC Golden Slipper GR 1, GCTC Magic Millions 2YO Classic). This is just to name a few. In all, MORE THAN READY has sired 162 individual stakes winners with 71 individual Group winners. These are truly remarkable statistics and MORE THAN READY is still going strong.

Very Cherry ticks all the boxes as she is by one of the world's best broodmare sires in ANABAA. He is the broodmare sire of 10 individual GR 1 winners including BUFFERING, TREVE, DISSIDENT, LUSH LASHES, ENGLISH, ROSTOVA, HARTNELL etc. In all, ANABAA is the broodmare sire 67 individual stakes winners and 28 individual Group winners.

A quality mare, Very Cherry represents a rare opportunity for any breeder looking for the real deal!
