The Mick Price-trained filly hasn’t been seen at the races since finishing fourth in the Listed Quezette Stakes (1100m) in August of last year.

The More Than Ready three-year-old was never at her best during the spring and was given a premature spell before suffering a muscle tear in her near hind leg as she began preparations for the 2013 Autumn Racing Carnival.

Price said he will take it one start at a time with Samaready and restrict her to mares races at the start of the spring before deciding on an ultimate Spring Carnival target.

“She has to come up as a four-year-old mare in the Stakes races, set weight and penalty races I guess,” Price told TVN.

“The problem with her as a four-year-old mare is that all horses around her are big, strong well grown horses and she was a fairly ready type of two-year-old ready at the time.”

Samaready had great success as a two-year-old, winning the Spotless Plate (1000m), the Blue Diamond Prelude (1100m) and Blue Diamond (1200m) double as well as the Group 2 Reisling Stakes (1200m).

She started the 2012 Golden Slipper (1200m) as a clear favourite but, after drawing a wide barrier, had too much work to do in the final stages of the race and finished third behind Pierro and Snitzerland.
