Sagamore Farm’s Recruiting Ready took all the money for this debut at 3-5 and rewarded his backers with a dominant romp in very fast time over the Pimlico strip to become the newest ‘TDN Rising Star’. Breaking on top, the bay colt quickly opened up by five lengths passing a quarter in :22.39, widened even further at will in the stretch and stayed straight as a string in the lane under a motionless Edgar Prado to register a huge first-out score by 10 1/4 lengths in :51.78. Recruiting Ready RNA’ed for $240,000 at the Fasig-Tipton March sale after breezing a furlong in :10 1/5 (video). He is the first North American winner for his sire (by Bernardini) and is a half to the impressive Centennial Farms maiden winner Adulator (Flatter). His second dam is MGSW Trip (Lord at War {Arg}). Sales History: $115,000 ylg ‘15 KEESEP; $240,000 RNA 2yo ’16 FTFMAR. Lifetime Record: 1-1-0-0, $22,800.
