Sad day for Brighthill Farm

It is with great sadness that we announce the loss of our stallion Perfectly Ready here at Brighthill Farm.

The rising 18 year old son of More Than Ready returned to the farm from the vet clinic this morning he was euthanized after a short battle with inoperable colic.
“Perfectly Ready was a wonderful stallion for us here at Brighthill Farm. He was not only a G1 winner himself but left G1 winner Signify and as a broodmare sire has left G1 winner Aloisia.” - Nick King
As well as Signify, Perfectly Ready left Al Strada who was NZ’s top two-year-old and placed in multiple G1’s. He also produced high class mares such as Perfect Start, Miss Three Stars and Moozoon. His total progeny earnings are in excess of $13 million.
He is now also making a big impact as a broodmare sire, with his mares so far producing the likes of MRC Thousand Guineas G1 winner Aloisia, G3 Australian two year old Run Naan and exciting NZ three-year-old Riodini G3.
Perfectly Ready created a long lasting association with his original owners, HRH Sheikh Mohammed bin Khalifa Al Maktoum, Vinery Stud and Brighthill Farm.
Perfectly Ready was a brilliant sire for us at Brighthill Farm, not only was he leading Karaka Freshman sire but was also Champion first season sire with his maiden crop of two-year-old’s in 2010/11.
“His loss will also be greatly felt around the farm on a day-to-day basis. Perfectly Ready had a wonderful character that was noticed and one that touched everybody who was involved with him. He will be greatly missed.”
