Ready To Bloom in 1:55.6
Promising four-year-old Ready To Bloom, who was bred, reared and sold by Benstud Standardbreds, earned a new speed badge of 1:55.6 when he emerged successful at Newcastle on Friday night (May 17).
Worse than midfield until the 600 metre mark, the gelding launched a probing three-wide run to storm to the lead half-way down the straight.
He has now won four races – three in New Zealand and one in Australia.
Ready To Bloom is the fifth foal and fourth winner (all inside 2:00) out of the $50,000 earning mare Bendall Rose.
