It had earlier been rumored that Ready Cash was going to race and breed in the United States, but when owner Pierre Allaire learned that his stallion had to be quarantined, he changed his mind.

However, after watching the powerful performance by Sebastian K this past Saturday night at the Meadowlands, Allaire made a new decision and now it’s final.

Ready Cash will go to the United States and the main goal is to try to beat Enough Talk's world record of 1:49.3.

The French agent and photographer Gerard Forni talked to Jimmy Takter on Sunday afternoon at Charlottenlund Racetrack in Copenhagen about the travel arrangements for French trotting’s most winning horse.

Ready Cash has not raced since the Prix de France in February, where he went off stride and was disqualified. He has been at stud, but has trained all the time and is fit and ready to race soon.

The 9-year-old Ready Cash has a mark of 1:53.1 and earnings of $5.9 million.
