At Ascot racecourse in Perth, Western Australia, Windsor Park Stud's ill-fated Gr1-winning stallion Thorn Park (Spinning World-Joy, by Bluebird) added a black-type success when 5YO New Zealand-bred mare Celebrity Dream (Thorn Park- Valpolicella, by Red Ransom) burst through the field late to score a decisive win in the $100,000 Listed Jungle Dawn Classic (1400m) for 3YO+ fillies & mares, defeating Fontainebleau & Top Of The Class. This was the second successive stakes victory for he Bob Peters-owned Celebrity Dream who improved her record to 7 wins (including the Listed Jungle Mist Classic) and 4 placings from 14 starts for $300,750 in earnings. Purchased for $260,000 at the 2014 NZB Premier Yearling Sale, Celebrity Dream is out of the Gr3 Manawatu Classic winner Valpolicella (Red Ransom) who has already produced Gr2 Sir Tristram Fillies' Classic winner Vavasour as well as Gr2 Autumn Classic winner and Gr1 Queensland Derby placegetter Vilanova.
