Dream Ahead Wins UK Gr1 Middle Park Stakes
Unbeaten US-bred juvenile Dream Ahead (Diktat-Land Of Dreams, by Cadeaux Genereux) annihilated his rivals by 9-lengths in the £160,000 (A$280,000) Gr1 Shadwell Middle Park Stakes (6 furlongs) for 2YO colts at Newmarket. Favourite Dream Ahead (ridden by William Buick for trainer David Simcock) defeated fellow US-bred colt Strong Suit (Rahy-Helwa, by Silver Hawk) & Irish-bred colt Approve (Oasis Dream-Wyola, by Sadler's Wells). Dream Ahead was originally a US$11,000 yearling at the 2009 Keeneland September Sale & subsequently a £36,000 (A$63,000) 2YO at this year's Doncaster April Sale. He now boasts 3 wins (also including last start's French Gr1 Prix Morny over 1200m at Deauville on August 22) from 3 starts for £286,590 (A$502,000) earnings.
