Vinery springs into action

The spring carnival proved pretty satisfying for Vinery Stud, with the Derby winner, Prized Icon, being by More Than Ready, and the Maribyrnong Plate success, Aspect, is by Pluck, and of course he is by More Than Ready.

More Than Ready is a remarkable and much travelled horse, next month he will have crossed the Pacific Ocean a record 32 times.

He is the only horse to be acclaimed champion two year old sire in both hemispheres, with an incredible 73 .4 % winner to runners.

A winning double followed the Derby at Mornington when Gold Artisan won well, he is in the right stable, the Hawkes team, having raced on just the five occasions more is sure to be heard of him

Next spot would be back to the city now that he has won a strong Maiden race, he put the field away with a minimum of fuss, he won with a fair bit in hand.

He looks more than capable of breaking through for a win in the city area over the coming weeks.

More Than Ready has total progeny earning s worldwide to $167.5 million, he has 19 Group 1 winners to his credit, 21 Group 2, and 305 Group 3 on his CV.

 Pluck wasting no time

Pluck, the son of More Than Ready, struck gold at Flemington when siring Aspect, he was an impressive winner of the Group 3 Maribyrnong Plate.

The Maribyrnong Plate has always been among feature races of the spring for two year olds, it was a race that the late Tommy Smith usually targeted a youngster for, the race first run in 1871.

Aspect is the first Stakes winner sired to the credit of Pluck, whose racing career was somewhat restricted to seven appearances, he won three races, two were stakes races, while all three were at a mile (1600 metres).

As for Aspect, he is an exciting colt; he came from last and virtually nowhere to be seen until the race was almost over.

His stable mare, Azazel, started favourite but was no match for Aspect, he is a quality colt, he will now be spelled until autumn, which comes in quickly, he is sure to be aimed for the Blue Diamond.

While Aspect is enjoying his spell, Removal, by Pluck, stepped into the winner’s circle, he won at Swan Hill two days later.
