READY'S IMAGE burst onto the national scene at Keeneland in April of his 2-year-old year and by mid-summer of that 2007 season he ranked as one of the best juveniles in the nation. In six starts at 2, he won three times, topped by a four-length score in the Gr.2 Sanford S. when getting six furlongs in 1:09.90. He dazzled in Belmont Park’s Tremont S., getting his first stakes victory by seven and a half lengths. His two stakes placings came when second in Saratoga’s venerable Gr.1 Hopeful and, in his stakes debut, a game third in the Gr.3 Kentucky Breeders' Cup S. at Churchill Downs.
Named Maryland-bred champion 2-year-old colt, READY’S IMAGE returned to win his first start at 3, Belmont Park’s Adjudicating S. He retired with four wins, a second and a third from 10 starts, for earnings of $310,542.

Undefeated in her first four career outings—three of which were stakes—POTOMAC BEND established herself as one of the top 3-year-old fillies in training early in 1999. After winning the Jameela S. against Maryland-breds in January and the open Marshua S. less than a month later at Laurel Park, the daughter of POLISH NUMBERS ventured to New York to capture the Gr.3 Cicada S. in March. Sidelined after that effort, she returned at age 4 to gain a victory against allowance company at Pimlico. She was retired with a career record of five victories in seven starts with earnings of $149,345. 

POTOMAC BEND is the dam of stakes-winning juvenile filly BLUEGRASS ATATUDE, winner of the 2011 Maryland Million Lassie S., and stakes-placed juvenile X Marks the Spot.
