Dream Ahead is a stallion who gets good looking, yet tough progeny. I love to have them in my stable.

overview

A five-time G1 winner as a 2YO and 3YO, Dream Ahead was rated equal to Frankel by Timeform as a 2YO. A tremendous and gutsy racehorse, he was not only a Joint Champion 2YO but also Champion 3YO Miler and Champion Sprinter in Europe.

He was the leading Australian 2nd Season Sire by Stakes-Winners in 2016-17 season with more SW’s than Foxwedge, So You Think, Sepoy, Smart Missile and Helmet.

He is the stallion the Australian breeding industry has been crying out for – proven, outcross and works with the Danehill blood, there is no reason why he can’t be the next More Than Ready, Red Ransom, Street Cry, Written Tycoon or I Am Invincible.

  • He has already sired a Classic G1 winner from his first European Crop – Al Wukair
  • He has achieved a remarkable nick with Redoute’s Choice mares siring three stakes-winners – Dream Aplenty, Generalissimo and Awaken
  • Had more stakes-winners as a 2nd Season Sire than Snitzel, I Am Invincible, Written Tycoon, Not A Single Doubt, Lonhro and Street Cry at the same time in their career
  • His yearlings have been bought by Gai Waterhouse & Adrian Bott, Darren Weir, Paul Perry, Shadwell, China Horse Club, Peter Moody, Darby Racing & Australian Bloodstock
