2013 McKenzie Stakes Start for So You Think Relation

A nicely-bred Lonhro colt that shares a bloodline with retired superstar So You Think is in line for a start in this Saturday’s McKenzie Stakes 2013 at Moonee Valley.

Unraced as a juvenile the Tony Noonan-trained Ready Again could be nearing their race debut having been nominated for the $120,000 Listed Essendon Nissan McKenzie Stakes (1200m) along with 11 other three-year-old colts and geldings.

It’s shaping up as a crack edition of the early Melbourne Spring Racing Carnival showdown too with the entries led by the 2013 Caulfield Guineas-bound duo of Clevadude and Cauthen who ran one-two at the track at the start of the month.

The Mornington-based Noonan liked what he saw from Ready Again at Moonee Valley on Tuesday morning when the unraced youngster put in a nice piece of work at the track.

Working alongside the Jim Conlan-trained Clear For Action, Noonan’s horse did enough to suggest they could be competitive in a black type debut where other possible starters include multiple Group performer Shamus Award and Peter Snowden’s ANZAC Day Stakes winner Long John.

“He seems to have good ability,” Noonan told Racing Victoria on Tuesday.

“He’s still learning, but he’s a pretty relaxed sort of colt and he’s got a tremendous temperament.

“Just bringing him out here will be good for him.”

Ready Again’s relation to dual Cox Plate champion So You Think comes from their dam Pride’n’prejudice who is the older half-sister of the former Bart Cummings-trained hero.

While unlikely to reach the same heights as So You Think who bowed out with close to $7.5 million in prize money earned last winter, Noonan is confident they’ll be able to bag a nice race somewhere along the line.

“He’ll end up a good horse somewhere along the line. Whether it’s Saturday (I don’t know) but at some point he will,” he said.

“They might be a bit sharp for him Saturday, but he’s got to kick off somewhere.

“He’s got a good horse’s pedigree, but that means nothing until they get out there and race.

“He’s a good sort, he’s a pretty boy, but he’s got a good temperament too. He’s got a brain on him, so hopefully it will all match up to success.”
