FRUEHLING FANTASTIC!!

OH NO, he has missed the start!!

But alas that was all part of the plan!!

Fruehling, our newest UK imported horse, ran and won at his first Australian start on Wesdnesday at Sandown in the $18K Perri Cutten maiden plate over 1600m.

Ridden by stable jockey Daniel Moor, Fruehling was slow to begin and jumped out 2 lengths behind the rest of the field, but Daniel quickly got him moving, and pushed up along the rails to settled 6th on the rails, 3-4 lengths of the leaders. He travelled nicely over the next 800m, and it was only a concern whether he would get out of the rails. But at the 400m point, arounding the turn, Daniel made an intelligent move to peel off the leaders backs 3 wide, and give Fruehling the opening and room he needed to show everyone his turn of foot, and long striding action, that a few of us had the privilege to view at the trials recently. At the 200m mark, Fruehling let down and shot through along the rails to open up a gap of a length on the field, and ran strongly through the line to win comfortably.

Fruehling is bred to be a handy stayer, and the way he finished off the race on Wednesday, shows that when he gets to the distances over 2000m and beyond, he will be a force to be reckoned with.

Chosen Moment wins and makes it 3 from 3!

Chosen Moment won the Southern Cross Ten Handicap over 1000m for 2yos at Bendigo on saturday 17/3/12.

Bendigo's inaugural Golden Mile raceday was the main metropolitan race meeting in Melbourne this weekend, and the Bendigo Jockey Club presented a well organised and very professional run event. 

Ridden by Craig Newitt, he jumped from the barriers, and settled on the rails behind the two leaders. Craig bidded his time behind the leaders until turning into the straight, where he moved Chosen Moment out 3 wide around the leaders. Once out, Craig gave Chosen Moment a couple of slaps with his whip and Chosen Moment  knuckled down to the task of reeling in the leaders over the last 200m. Chosen Moment got the better of the leader with 100m to go, and coasted to the line for the final 30m of the race to win by 2.5 lengths.

After the race, Craig Newitt said that he was very impressed with Chosen Moment, and believes he will be a better horse over a slightly long distance. He also said that he should measure up and become a very good 3yo.

Anthony Freedman was very happy with Chosen Moment's performance, and said that he looked like he could stretch out eventually to 1400m, which will open up alot more opportunities for him as he matures.

BANG! Flirtatious wins at her 2nd ever race start!

Wow, what a win by Flirtatious!

Flirtatious won at her second ever race start at Terang.

Yes it is a long way away from Melbourne, but it doesn't change the fact that she was impressive in her win against males in an Open 2yo Maiden over 1000m.

Flirtatious drew barrier 1, and ridden by Daniel Moor, she was pushed out of the barriers to be sitting just behind the leading bunch on the rails. She travelled quiet nicely for Daniel, and was waiting for his run once they turned into the straight. The leader shot 2 lengths clear at the top of the straight, and Daniel looking for a run, shot Flirtatious back to the rails and once she got balanced powered home to gather in the leader and win by 0.5 lengths, in the time of 57.51s on a track rated a Good (3).

We were expecting her to be doing her best work over the last 200m of the race, and she didn't let us down. There is no doubt she has ability, and she will be more suited as the distance of the races get longer.

This is exciting especially since Flirtatious is owned by the first ever all female Dream Girls syndicates.

Alot of our Dream Girls members are first time owners, and are now first time winners!!

Congratulations to all the Dream Girls, and we know there is much more fun in store for you all with Flirtatious!

Open Day @ Markdel attracts a healthy attendance

We held our Open Day last sunday at Markdel, with over 80 people in attendance, that enjoyed a parade of our existing Dream stable of horses, and a couple of new yearlings which are available for sale, followed by a sausage sizzle, and refreshments keeping the crowd well hydrated.

Some of the highlights for the day were:

Comic Ruler (He has returned to the stables for a winter preparation in line with racing on some softer tracks) He showed that he has some work ahead to get him back to fitness, after a healthy spell in the paddocks at St Ives. His coat was healthy and look a happy and well within himself.

Chosen Moment paraded very well, and showed that he has really started to develop into an athletic type. The stable are very happy with his progress, and are quietly confident he his ability.

Flirtatious was as flirty as ever with a number of the Dream Girls in attendance keen to get a happy snap with their filly. She has always looked a very nice type, strong, and healthy. She has trialled twice now, and she is not far away from starting again on the racetrack. She was bought with a view to being a 3yo filly capable of being very competitive over 1600m, and she continues to show us that will be the case.

Chosen Moment debuts at Sandown

Chosen Moment debuted yesterday in the Swettenham Stud Dash for Cash 2yo race at Sandown over 900m.

It was a nice surprise to see him racing before Christmas, and unfortunately the heavens opened up in the morning, and the track was extremely rain affected.

This made it harder for us to get a guage on his ability, and he was asked to go back to last in a 5 horse field, and make a run at them over the final 400m.

Dwayne Dunn was our rider, and he allowed Chosen Moment to pull out and make his run around the turn, with 400m to go.

Chosen Moment looked like he was about to make a charge at the leaders, but found the wetter track against him over the final 200m, and he was not pushed out over the last 100m.

Dwayne thinks he has ability, and would be allowed to show his ability once he gets over a distance of 1200m on a drier track.

We will try and target another race for him in the coming weeks.

We had a large contingent of owners at Sandwon yesterday who enjoyed the facilities of the owners room after the race.

 

Flirtatious debuts at Flemington on Cup Day.....

Flirtatious our chestnut daughter of Purrealist debuted on Cup Day in Race 1, the Emirates Air Listed 2yo Fillies race over 1000m, run at 10.20am in the morning.

This was the first event for the Dream Girl syndicates, and a large group of girls ventured to Flemington to watch their little girl compete.

With the help of Emma Freedman, a few mentions on the Today Show, and a nice little article in the Melbourne Herald Sun (See photos), the Dream Girl syndicates had a little bit of publicity.

Flirtatious herself took the day in her stride, and walked around the Flemington mounting yard with the roses in full bloom liked she had been there before.

Flirtatious was ridden by Nicholas Hall, and she gave him a nice feel, even the the experience was very new to her, and will help her mature.

She was beaten for early speed, in a race that suited the speedier 2yo fillies.

She maintained her position at the back of the main bunch until the 400m point, when Nicholas Hall pulled her out for an effort. She looked like she would run home strongly, however the last 100m of the race saw her fitness give out, and she was not pushed to hard after that by Nicholas Hall.

She pulled up shin sore from the slightly hard track, so there were reasons for her lack of effort over the last 100m.

Comic Ruler wins at Ballarat in Dream colours!

Comic Ruler won at only his second start today in the Ballarat Come to Life Maiden Plate over 1200m.

Ridden by Daniel Moor and wearing the Dream Thoroughbred silks, Comic Ruler won by 0.2 lengths in the time of 1.13.97 on a track rated on the worse side of Dead 5.

Comic Ruler jumped out of the barriers into second place just trailing the leader on the fence by a length. Daniel let him settle nicely in second place for the first 600m and began to rev him up approaching the turn. Entering the straight Comic Ruler was slightly green and shifted out, but once Daniel straightened him up 200m out he surged to the line strongly to wear down the initial leader 50m from the winning post. A tough win by our boy, and he showed improvement from his first ever run on a hard track surface. The softer track this time helped him no doubt.

Comic Ruler paid $12.10 on Sportingbet Maxidiv! Woohoo!

It's great to see our new bunch of owners achieve success on the racetrack so early, and we look forward to more fun and success together!

Dream Girls get Flirtatious!

The Dream Girls syndicates are up and running and excited with anticipation of seeing their first syndicate filly hit the racetrack...

Dream Girls have named their filly "Flirtatious".

Flirtatious is currently in full training at Markdel and is heading towards the 2yo trials at Cranbourne on 19 September.

So far Anthony Freedman is happy with her progress and she seems to be very precocious at this early stage.

We look forward to some fun times ahead with the Dream Girls, and their adventure into racehorse ownership...

Giddy up and Live the Dream!
