No one is better at finding a good More Than Ready than Let's Go, who have raced More Than Ready grade one winners Verrazano and Daredevil - both now exciting young sires - as well as More Than Ready's classic performing son Ready’s Echo, and most recently More Than Ready's highly-promising two-year-old grade two winner Made You Look.
Let's Go's latest More Than Ready purchase is the exceptional colt out of Union Waters. A two-year-old winner and winner producer, Union Waters is by Dixie Union, a top-class racehorse, a very successful sire, and now a fast-rising broodmare sire, his daughters having already produced such as Breeders' Cup Juvenile (gr. I) scorer New Year's Day, two-year-old grade one winners Mor Spirit and Klimt, and grade two winners Mohaymen and Unified.
Union Waters is a three-quarters sister to stakes placed two-year-old Gran Tenor, and half-sister to More Than Ready's stakes placed son, Last Out of Panama. Union Water's dam, Panama Canal, winner of the Next Move Handicap (gr. III), is a daughter of Champion Sprinter and classic sire, Gulch, and is half-sister to the dams of graded stakes winner Sal The Barber and stakes winners Joyful Chaos (dam of grade one placed two-year-old Sweet Shirley Mae) and Success Beauty (herself dam of grade one winner Success Brocken).
Union Water's granddam, Colonial Waters, is a millionaire whose victories include the John A. Morris Handicap (gr. I). She is half-sister to grade one winner Southern Sultan and to Withers Stakes (gr. II) scorer and Preakness Stakes (gr. I) runner-up Iron Constitution.
This colt is a product of the More Than Ready/Dixieland Band cross that has already produced graded stakes winners Dixie Ready and Miss Three Stars, and stakes winners No More Goodbyes and Probation Ready.
