Regally Ready Tries to Honor Thy Father in 200K More Than Ready

Category : News - Fri 12/09/2014 - 16:06 EDT

The stellar lineup of stakes action continues September 13 at Kentucky Downs with the track’s second and final Saturday card of the meet which includes the $200,000 More Than Ready for three year-olds and upward going a mile on the turf.

The field of nine is led by 2/1 morning line favorite Guys Reward trained by Dale Romans.  Guys Reward, a hard-knocking veteran and stakes campaigner, has posted eight wins, three seconds, and ten thirds in 38 career starts on the turf for earning of $680,089.  The seven year-old son of Grand Reward is a multiple grade III winner, and has been a consistent performer over the years for his current connections.

Guys Reward get less distance and new rider

Two starts back, Guys Reward won the Grade III Oceanport stakes at a mile and a sixteenth at Monmouth before faltering at a mile and an eighth in the Grade III Cliff Hanger in his last start over the same track.  Back at a shorter distance, Guys Reward figures to be in the mix once again, and gets a jockey change with veteran rider Corey Lanerie in the irons. 

Regally Ready to control early fractions 

Regally Ready (5/2 ML) possesses the speed to control the race for trainer Steve Asmussen.  A son of the race’s namesake, Regally Ready is in sharp form having won three of his last four starts including a 12 length win in the West Virginia Speaker’s Cup – a race that was washed off the turf and run on the main track at Mountaineer August 2.  A former Breeder’s Cup Turf Sprint champion, Regally Ready has acquitted himself nicely at the mile distance with two wins in six lifetime starts at that distance on the grass.
