Lyndhurst Stud has announced its leading first season sire Better Than Ready will stand for $30,000 (Plus GST) this season.
Among Better Than Ready's best performing progeny includes $500,000 QTIS Jewel winner The Odyssey and Rockhampton-trained filly, Listed Calaway Gal winner, Better Reflection.
Following in the footsteps of Spirit Of Boom, Better Than Ready also had four of his progeny qualify for the 2019 Magic Millions 2YO Classic in January.
Lyndhurst Stud's Jeff Kruger said Better Than Ready's book would be capped at 160 mares plus returns, limiting the number of outside bookings that will be available.
"Demand is strong already with many southern studs committed to send mares," he said.
Being free of Danehill and Star Kingdom blood, the son of More Than Ready offers an extremely rare outcross for Australian mares, Lyndhurst's media release stated.
Yarramalong Park's Richard Foster added: "Better Than Ready's third crop weanlings are up another level and even more outstanding. The stallion is destined to fill a most important niche in Australia's breeding history."
