CHARLES TAKE CHARGE AT BENDIGO

Charles in Charge scored a doggy win in the Colin Browell Memorial Handicap yesterday at Bendigo.

It had been an 8 run drought and almost a year since his last win, but Charles in Charge was primed to win yesterday after a disappointing run at Flemington last start.

With apprentice Beau Mertens claiming 3kgs, Charles was pitched into the race as the top rated runner.

A hot pace was set early, and Beau made the correct decision to sit off the early pacemakers, and allow Charles to stride out and get a nice cart into the race.

Approaching the turn when the leaders started feeling the pinch, he surged forward and put a couple of lengths on his rivals.

The fast pace started to tell on him but with hand and heels riding by Beau Mertens in the last few strides, Charles stuck his neck out to win narrowly to win by a nose.

The Dream Team were in raptures as their hero came back to scale, making it 5 wins from 18 starts.

That run should also bring him on in fitness, and a step up to 1400m is likely at his next start.

Still life left in our Chosen Moment!

Chosen Moment stormed back into the winners stall at Moonee Valley last night with an emphatic win in the last race.

The 5yo gelding was returning from a spell first up for new trainer Darren Weir.

Chosen was transferred to the Warrnambool stables of Darren Weir in late November to be prepared on his sand dunes and beach facilities.

Chosen has only had 2 grass gallops in preparation for his first up run last night, and the fresh approach has given him a new lease of life

He jumped well and sat right behind the strong pace on the fence for apprentice Jordan Childs.
He looked to be travelling well in the run and approaching the turn the leader laid out and allowed a run up the fence, which Chosen Moment grabbed in a couple of strides and drove through to put a good length on his rivals and held that strongly to the line.

A loud roar was heard as he went past the post with the Dream Team in attendance!

A great result for the patience shown by all his loyal owners!

LIVE THE DREAM!

Shufetish puts her best hoof forward!

Shufetish won her long awaited maiden today at Kyneton over 1450m against open age horses.

Shufetish was having her first start at the 1450m distance but started a warm favourite.

Ridden by experienced jock Dean Yendall, he jumped Shufetish out from barrier 2 to be sitting behidn the leader on the fence.

It was a fierce competitive race, with 3 horse competing for the lead. Yendall rode patiently and allowed them to pressure each other while smoking his pipe behind them. Approaching the 400m when the challengers started to tire, Yendall push Shufetish off the rail to range up outside the leader approaching the turn.

Shufetish looked under a good hold, and when Yendall ask her to sprint for home she put a couple of lengths on the opposition to win running away by 3.75 lengths.

The Dream Girls have been waiting to see her salute the judge, and she made sure it was a significant win!

Shufetish has shown good potential but to break the maiden had been frustrating before today.

Still a little green, she looks like she can now improve off that win, and push onto something stronger now.

I'm sure the Dream Girls will be out in their Hot Pink outfits next start!

 

DUE DATE SCORES A DETERMINED WIN

Due Date won the Hogan Painting & Decorating Maiden at Newscastle today over 1500m.

Due Date ridden by Chad Lever, jumped well and sat outside the leader for the first half of the race.

Approaching the turn, Chad gave Due Date a niggle to keep his mind on the job, and ranged up outside the leader turning for home, shortly after he was challeneged on his outside and looked to have been headed, but he dug in for a fight, and fought out the race strongly over the last 200m to stick his head out and win.

Due Date still looks capable of stepping up further in distance, and he looks like developing into a nice middle distance runner for the Dream Stable.

This was the first winner for our partnership with Bjorn Baker Racing, and we are sure there are plenty more winners in store for the partnership.

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.

LIVE THE DREAM!

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.
