Samaready was racing at Group 1 level for the first time since she finished third in the 2012 Group 1 Golden Slipper (1200m), after an injury forced her away from the track for over a year, and recorded a dominant four lengths win from Buffering and Le Bonsir in the most arrogant of fashion.

Trainer Mick Price did a remarkable job bringing the More Than Ready mare back from her career-threatening injury and was clearly delighted to have his hard work rewarded with a win at the highest level of racing.

“I love the mare,” Price said.

“I was really glad that we were left alone on to make our own decisions because the mares race last week was tempting but when you have a good horses you don’t really like to take a backwards step so we thought that we would have a crack here.

“I thought it was a very valiant and brave win from the mare and it was great to see her physically look well.

“I am just really wrapped that she can race in this company and race properly.”

Jockey Craig Newitt gave the four-year-old a lovely run in transit and said that the race turned out exactly as he had planned in the lead-up.

“I was scratching my head the last couple of days trying to work the race out; every speed map I came up I was going to be three deep midfield,” Newitt said after the race.

“I ended up in the spot I thought I was going to be and she was there for me when I asked her.”

Samaready will have an opportunity to record another Group 1 win during the 2013 Spring Racing Carnival; with the Manikato Stakes (1200m) at Moonee Valley on October 25 set to be her next race start.
