Hear what miRunners Head of Bloodstock Mick Malone thinks of this purchase

“At $70,000 this colt was an absolute steel! Normally Magic Millions Race day is run on the Saturday before book two, but due to the weather conditions the race day was run on the following Thursday. Consequently we got to purchase this outstanding Better Than Ready colt before two of his progeny won the features on Magic Millions day including the 2 Million Dollar Magic Millions Classic won By Skirt The Law.

Also adding to the highway Robbery when we purchased this bloke, was post our purchase not only has Better Than Ready as a stallion taken a huge leap, the half sister to Pellegrina (mother of our colt) in Snipzu is now the mother of exciting Extreme Choice 2yr old Don Corleone now favourite for the Sires Produce and in the betting for every 2yr feature in the race book, including 3rd favourite for the Golden Slipper.

Better Than Ready had two colts at the Magic Millions this year both from the same farm that I loved and both replicas of each other. One was purchased by super judge Henry Field as a stallion prospect for $530,000 and the other by miRunners for $70,000. And as stated above, had our bloke sold post the updates we would have been talking multiples of 70k. Love this horse.”
