Dream lived up to her 4-5 odds when the 2-year-old filly by Malibu Moon scored an “easier than it looked” 4 3/4-length victory in her racing debut on July 20.
The bay filly was never threatened in the 5 1/2-furlong dash, as she was sent straight to the front by jockey Rosie Napravnik, and without the slightest pressure, drew off to a five-length lead in the stretch, and coasted home the easiest of winners over the wet fast Delaware Park surface.
The victory was worth $28,500 for her owner/breeder Dark Hollow Racing Partnership. She is trained by Rodney Jenkins.
As good as Dream looked on the dirt, she could also have a big future on the grass if her connections decide to try that surface. Her dam Dream Out Loud is by Stravinsky, a multiple Group 1 winner on the lawn, and she is also a half-sister to Magistretti, winner of the 11 furlong Man o'War (G1T).
Malibu Moon has had a banner year thus far in 2010. He currently stands in fourth spot on the General Sire list, with progeny earnings of $4.9 million. The multiple graded stakes winning mare Life At Ten is his leading earner on the year.
