Great news for Yorkshire Park this week with the purchase of the three year old filly Watch The Dream out of New Zealand thanks to the efforts of Stuart Valentine who was able to secure the purchase on our behalf.
Watch The Dream NZ (2.0.3) – By champion sire Bettors Delight (USA) this just turned 3 year old filly is from the very good race mare and NZ 2 Year Old Filly of the Year in Dreamy Atom (1.59.2 $108,810) which makes Watch The Dream a half sister to:
Western Dream (1.56.0, 14 wins $336,331) – The multiple Group 1 NZ Oaks winner and her first foal is Western Cullen (19 wins $447,536).
Dream Royale (1.56.0 & 1.53.6 USA – multiple NZ, Australia & USA winner $145,068) back in Australia and a successful broodmare.
Happy Dreamer (8 USA wins 1.57.1 $96,916) also purchased back to NZ for breeding.
Qualified as a two year old she had two unsuccessful starts in February, 2014 before being turned out to grow and returning to the race track recently at Forbury Park where she raced three wide early before sitting in the death seat and toughed out a really good first up win in 2.0.3 winning by a short half head. Then last Sunday headed to Winton over a mile finishing 5th in 1.57.0 against the older horses and ran home very strongly.
Yorkshire Park is pleased to report that Watch The Dream arrived safely from Christchurch and has settled in at her new stables. Watch The Dream will be trained in New South Wales by Shane Tritton at Keinbah and will be driven in her races by Lauren Panella.
A big win for the Girls Unite Syndicate as Union Ally saluted again at Ballarat last Tuesday night winning by 2.2M in 1.59.1. This little pocket rocket made it three wins in a row and will line up again on Thursday 25th September at Geelong in Race 3 drawing the outside of the front row. She certainly looks the goods again in this race and has every opportunity to make it four wins in a row this time to be driven by Grant Campbell.
Exciting times at Yorkshire Park as we await the first of our foals to be born this year. Vickymurphy (Bettors Delight x Vicky Hanover) in foal to Falcon Seelster is due to foal on the 23rd September so we shouldn’t have too long to wait.
