By the Champion QLD Sire & Current Australian Leading Sire of 2yo Winners including recent 2yo QLD star ALPINE EDGE, this ripper of a BETTER THAN READY colt is out of a 2 x winning Northern Meteor mare who’s had the one to race for a 2yo winner and she descends from the rich family of 20’ Oaks winner PERSONAL, stallions FOREPLAY & TIME THIEF plus Champion Sprinter LAISSERFAIRE.


We’re a big fan of Australia’s Leading Sire of 2yo winners BETTER THAN READY and thought this colt would sneak through the cracks and we were right!

A sharp type who is well balanced and a beautiful mover who’s very light on his feet. Being a November foal, he’s got plenty of growing to come and he’s got the right frame and scope to develop into a lovely Autumn 2yo
BETTER THAN READY just keeps getting better… he is not just QLD’s Current Leading Sire, but the AUSTRALIA wide current Leading Sire of 2yo winners with 10 x 2yo winners this season (from 21 runners) highlighted by Group 3 winning colt ALPINE EDGE and Group 3 Magic Millions Vo Rogue plate winner APACHE CHASE
Dam Miss Le Nord was a 2 x winner herself and has produced only the one to race for a 2yo winner!


Sire – BETTER THAN READY (by More Than Ready)

At first there was Spirit Of Boom breaking records and then there was BETTER THAN READY! Champion First Season and Champion 2yo sire with a phenomenal record breaking 23 x 2yo winners in his first season at stud!
Sire of recent Group 3 & Listed winning 2yo ALPINE EDGE, Group 3 Magic Millions day winner APACHE CHASE (50k yearling), $1Million Magic Million QTIS Handicap winner THE ODYSSEY (30k yearling) plus further Stakes Winners JAGGED EDGE (40k yearling) and BETTER REFLECTION (20k yearling) plus Stakes Placed PAREDO
He is the current Leading Sire of 2yo Winners Australia-wide with 10 winners at a 47.6% strike rate – ahead of Capitalist, Fastnet Rock, Written Tycoon, Spill The Beans, Headwater, Sooboog, I Am Invicible and Not A Single Doubt!

Dam – MISS LE NORD (Northern Meteo)

This colt is only the third foal out of 2 x winner on the track Miss Le Nord who has had on the one to the races for 2yo winner PREVISO
She is the daughter of another winner and incredibly well related in MICHAUX who is the three-quarter sister to Stakes Winners A TIME FOR JULIA, ALMIGHTY GIRL & TIME THIEF
Furthermore, this is the family of Champion Sprinter LAISSERFIARE and brilliant broodmare PERSONIFY, the dam of 2020 Group 1 VRC Oaks winner PERSONAL
