MAHER & EUSTACE train and loved this colt…just 30% left!

Ripper colt looks like he’d run through a brick wall!

Stable comment: Fast Better Than Ready colt out of a Commands mare who has produced two winners from three foals to race – we think he looks a real pocket rocket and an absolute steal.

Very powerful colt typical of the breed, early 2yo type, perfect type to aim at the early 2yo races & the $2M Magic Millions 2yo Classic in January 2023.

Ciaron & David were particularly keen on the colt and rapt to get him….having won the Magic Millions twice in 3 years they really think this colt fits the bill.

Terrific shoulder & hindquarter on him…very powerful colt who walked with purpose when we inspected him.

Better Than Ready has really stamped himself of a sire who gets early 2yo success and this colt is very typical of his progeny.

Out of a Commands mare further adds to the strength of this colt, Commands was a very good sire himself but now a very good broodmare sire as well.

We invite you to join us in this exciting prospect & be part of the team!
