Comeback queen Samaready blitzed her rivals in Friday’s Group 1 Moir Stakes (1200m) at Moonee Valley but it will be a bitter-sweet victory for her breeder Gerry Harvey who lost Samaready’s dam Samar after complications when foaling a full-brother to Samaready nine days ago, reports Breednet.

There will be few more dominant performances in Group 1 races this season.  

The daughter of More Than Ready (USA) came from midfield under Craig Newitt to win running away by four lengths from the hapless Buffering with the winner’s stablemate Le Bonsir back in third.

Among the best two-year-olds in the nation with wins in the Group 1 Blue Diamond Stakes and Group II Riesling Stakes as well as a luckless third in the Group 1 Golden Slipper, Samaready was restricted by injury to just one start last season.

After being off the scene for over a year, the daughter of More Than Ready made a successful return to racing in a Group III atCaulfield back in August.

"I thought it was a very valiant and brave win from the mare and it was great to see her physically look well,” winning trainer Mick Price said. "I am just really wrapped that she can race in this company and race properly...The Manikato Stakes will be her next main goal. I think that the time between runs will be good for her and I don’t have a good feeling about the Patinack down the straight for some reason.”

Bred by Baramul Stud's Gerry Harvey, Samaready was consigned by Vinery to the 2011 Inglis Australian Easter Yearling sale where she was knocked down to Belmont Bloodstock Agency for $150,000.
