Ontrack’s smart sprinter Dream Master added to his record with an emphatic win at the Gold Coast.
Trained by Toby Edmonds on the Gold Coast track, Dream Master has now won four times and been placed three times from only 16 life time starts.
“He’s been a horse who has taken time to reach maturity both physically and mentally, but he’s developed into a really nice horse and there wasn’t a nicer horse in the pre-race parades at the Gold Coast.
“The horse raced right up to his pre-race appearance and, in spite of drawing very wide, he jumped quickly crossed over to lead easily and was totally dominant.
“Dream Master is a horse who races best when allowed to roll along in front and he is very, very genuine.
“This preparation should provide him with the opportunity to work through the grades and he looks capable of winning a nice Saturday race in the city,” said Grant Morgan.
Purchased by Grant Morgan from Emirate Parks draft at the 2015 Inglis Classic Sale for $60,000, Dream Master is by Dream Ahead from the Exceed and Excel mare Excellent Lady. The purchase proved astute because not long after the sale, Excellent Lady’s first foal started racing and named Petits Filou, she went on to win her first four races, including the Group 3 Quezette Stakes at Flemington.
“She ended up winning five of her 10 starts and then sold at the Magic Millions Broodmare Sale for $1.15 million,” said Grant Morgan.
Trainer Toby Edmonds reported Dream Master came through his Gold Coast win in good order and is now enjoying a few days at the trainer’s Guanaba farm.
“We will let him unwind for a few days on the farm and he will return to the stable next Monday.
“He is a very nice horse and he has come back to racing this preparation in terrific order. He’s developed and grown but more importantly he is mentally matured and we see a good future for him.
The horse did buck in his first start this preparation, but we are pretty sure that was a result of the horse being struck under the flank by the stirrup of a rival jockey and he hasn’t shown any signs of misbehaving since.
“In fact, he has one of the nicest temperaments of the horses in our stable and tends to be a really laid back and cruisy horse,” said Toby Edmonds.
