Lonhmacc scores a fighting maiden win!

Lonhmacc won the $15K Oyster Friday @ Trackside Maiden Plate today at Kilmore over 1200m.

Lonhmacc was ridden perfectly by Andrew Mallyon to score by a short head.

He jumped evenly with the field and from barrier 5, Mallyon was able to position him right behind the leading bunch.

He tracked the leaders until the turn before peeling off the leader's backs, and showed a turn of foot to put a length or two break on the field, before his condition ran out over the last 50m. But he showed tenacity to fight it out to the line and hold on for a narrow victory.

The effort was good considering it was an Open maiden field, and being first up over 1200m. He will take enormous benefit from the run.

And a big group of owners were on hand to celebrate the win.

This is the first win for our new partnership with Bluegrass Bloodstock, and we are sure there are many more to come with an exciting bunch of 3yos about to hit the track for the Spring Carnival.

Lonhmacc was superbly prepared by the Anthony Freedman Racing Stable, he is a son of the mighty Lonhro, and carrying very similar markings he was a standout in the parade ring. 

Special thanks to Will Stewart for his handling of Lonhmacc on raceday, and keeping the excited colt relaxed pre-race.


SHUFETISH lights up the Cranbourne Trials!

The Dream Girls Syndicate watched their Flying Spur filly SHUFETISH burn up the turf at the Cranbourne Trials today in Heat 7 against 3yo fillies over 800m.

Shufetish ridden by stable jockey Daniel Moor jumped evenly with the field from barrier 1, and sat on pace, until she pushed up underneath approaching the turn, and when asked by D. Moor to let down, put a couple of lengths break on the chasing pack, extending that over the last 100m to a register a 10 length win.

More impressively was the time registered for the trial being the fastest of the day at 47.53secs on a track rated a Heavy 8.

Shufetish was having her second trial this preparation and she is now fit and ready to launch her Spring campaign in the next 7-10 days.

The Dream Girls were very excited with the result and let everyone on Social Media know how proud they were of their girl!

Lonhmacc won Heat 18 over 990m. to top off an very successful day for the Dream Stable. 

Ridden by Group 1 winning jockey Michael Rodd, the regal looking black Lonhro colt, Lonhmacc was tradesmanlike in his win.

He dwelt slightly before rallying through the field to lead comfortably and M. Rodd allowed him to stride out under his own steam. Rounding the turn into the straight, Lonhmacc was shaken up and fought through to the finish to win the trial narrowly, in a time of 62.79 secs.

Sale topping Magic Albert colt joins Dream Stable!

Dream Thoroughbreds purchased the sale topping Magic Albert colt at yesterday's March Magic Millions yearling sale.

The Magic Albert x Livonia colt was offered by Kenmore Lodge in Queensland, and attracted alot of interest from buyers with no less than 5 interested parties getting involved in a bidding duel to secure the colt.

Dream Thoroughbreds focussed their energies on purchasing the best colt out of the sale, and this Magic Albert colt ticked all the boxes.

"He caught our eye as soon as he came out of his box, correct, good length and scope, athletic, and a very good moving colt." said Lenny Russo from Bluegrass Bloodstock

To back up his impressive looks, his half sister Japhils trained by Darren Weir, won her first start impressively in January at Moonee valley as a hot favourite.

This pedigree update was what attracted some much interest in the colt, and he was always going to one of the top lots of the sale.

We decided that we were not going to go home without him, and concentrated our efforts to secure him, and finalise our group of yearling purchases for 2014.

The colt will be trained by Anthony Freedman at Flemington, and will be aimed at the 3yo Guineas races, and the Magic Millions race series.

Charles in Charge goes back to back!

Charles in Charges won the final heat of the Mitavite Summer Challenge over 1525m at Mornington today.

Charles jumped out quickly and crossed the field to lead comfortably, before continuing on with an even yet strong tempo. His opposition were struggling to hold a position behind him. Ridden brillantly by young apprentice Josh Cartwright, Charles was given a breather down the side without losing his momentum, before Josh quicken him up at the 400m approaching the turn. His opposition behind were struggling to bridge the gap, and when turning for home, he skipped away to win quite comfortably. His last 100m was as strong as his first.

This win as impressive for 2 reasons, as it was against open company, and his time was the fastest over 1525m for the day.

A large group of owners, family and friends were in attendance to cheer him home, and the loud cheers continued as he returned to the winner's stall.

Charles will now head towards the final of the Mitavite Summer Challenge over 1600m on Mornington Cup Day worth $70K.





Charles strikes back!

Charles in Charge defied all challenges to race away with the BM72 1400m Race 7 at Morphettville Parks yesterday.

Ridden by Matthew Neilson, Charles pushed up to hold the fence, under pressure froma couple of horses on his outside. But without pushing him to hard, Neilson kept Charles under a nice gallop to keep the horses from crossing him. At the 400m, pressure came on him 3 wide, but Charles was still working through his gears, and the last 100m saw him stride away from the pack and win comfortably.

The winning margin was a comfortable 1.3 lengths for Charles in Charge.

After a frustrating Spring campaign, Charles returned for s Summer campaign in November.

Anthony Freedman stood behind the belief that the step up to 1400m would allow Charles to roll forward to the lead under an even tempo.

Under this steady crusing speed, Charles was allowed to step through his gears, and then produced his customary dash over the last 100m.

Over shorter distances Charles, has been forced to race out of his comfort zone, and yesterday race was a worthwhile experiment to understand what scope he has fpr the future.

We look forward to his next experiment!


2013 Annual Yearling Parade at Flemington

This SUNDAY May 26, Dream Thoroughbreds will hold our annual yearling parade for 2013 at Anthony Freedman's stables at Flemington.

Last year we showcased the previously unnamed MyBoyCharlie colt, now known as Charles in Charge. He is unbeaten with 2 wins from 2 races, and for a $4,950 investment our owners have already returned $4,000 in prizemoney each.

This year we will showcase 4 new yearlings purchased at the 2013 Gold Coast Magic Millions Sale in January, and the Inglis Premier yearling sale in March.


This year our Queen of the Crop is our new Fastnet Rock filly out of USA dam Mountain Legacy.

She is an outstanding filly with a stamp of class about her, and definitely has become Anthony Freedman's favourite in her short time in work.

She is a very valuable filly, and she will only be targeted at black type races to maximise her enormous broodmare value.

Fastnet Rock is the current Australian Champion Sire of 2011-2012, and he has produced the most exciting fillies of the last 3 years, and we have high hopes this filly will be every bit as exciting!


Next, we present our athetic Lonhro colt out of stakes placed Evilweb. 

Charles is in Charge!

Charges in Charge won the Adelaide Magic Millions 2yo Classic last week at his second lifetime start.

A large group of Dream owners made the trek across to Adelaide on the Monday Labour Day public holiday to watch Charles run on a very hot 38 degree day.

Craig Williams was again confident before the race, that he would be able to settle in a forward position, and be hard to beat in the race.

Again Craig took the initiative from the barrier jump , and surged Charles to the lead over the first 200m, and allowed him to settle under his own steam.

He travelled very well, and before the turn, it seemed that the his chasing opposition were struggling off the bit behind him.

As he straightened Charles showed his customary sprint, and lengthened his stride, to shot away by 3 lengths.

Craig rode him out hands and heels over the last 200m, and although they made a last dip at chasing him down, Charles was never in danger!

It was a loud group of owners that made themselves known down the straight and after the win, with a papparazzi like group of photographers taking lots of happy snaps for us to cherish in days and weeks to come.

Charles is now back in Melbourne, and having a well deserved rest, with the early Spring races in Melbourne his next target.

Charles takes charge!

Dreams do come true, and the much anticipated debut of our new 2yo gelding Charles in Charge did not disappoint anyone!

Heavy rains overnight may have dampened the track, but did not dampen the enthusiam of a large numbers of owners, who headed towards Sandown to watch Charles in Charge debut in Race 1 the Mitavite Handicap for 2yos over 1200m.

Craig Williams gave a polished perfromance pre race, with a detailed assessment of the track condition, his tactics going into the race and the opposition.

And he carried out his plan to a T.

From barrier 1, he stalked the leader until the top of the straight, where he darted up the inside, sprinted quickly, to take the lead 300m from home, maintaining his lead all the way and never really looked likely to lose. He offically won by 1.25 lengths in a time of 1.15.80, which was comparable to open class on the day.

The owners and supporters were in raptures, and it was an exciting celebration after the race, with photos, and Craig Williams again explaining to all the owners the race in detail.

There is alot more in store for this 2yo gelding by MyBoyCharlie, and he looks likely to head to Adelaide for his next start in the Magic Millions race on March 11.

Keep Living the Dream!
