Hall of Fame and Triple Crown-winning trainer Bob Baffert, who with his team of advisors has found countless gems at yearling sales around the country, found a dream at Keeneland in Kentucky the week of Sept. 14. Baffert signed the ticket for $410,000 for the Maryland-bred yearling colt by Ghostzapper out of the Malibu Moon mare DREAM on behalf of Three Amigos Stable, a partnership of Karl Watson, Mike Pegram and Paul Weitman.
Bred by longtime partners Dark Hollow Farm, Dorsey Brown, Mr. and Mrs. David Schwaber and Mr. and Mrs. Arnold Davidov, DREAM’s colt is the second produced from the graded stakes-placed mare also bred by the partners.
The appropriately named DREAM has always been a dream – an exciting juvenile winner in her only start at 2, she was a bonafide stakes performer when hitting the board in three consecutive stakes starts at 3, including Aqueduct’s Gr. 3 Cicada, before retiring to the Dark Hollow Farm broodmare band. Renowned bloodstock agent Donato Lanni was impressed with the talented mare and tried to buy her after that maiden win at Delaware Park. An advisor on the Baffert team, Lanni spotted her Ghostzapper son and made the call.
DREAM’s first foal is 2015 juvenile winner SPLIT, a son of Speightstown who was a six-figure yearling at Keeneland a year ago. Her two yearlings have totalled $530,000 at auction.
Out of DREAM OUT LOUD, a half-sister to English champion and U.S. Grade 1 winner Magistretti and also a member of the Dark Hollow Farm broodmare band, DREAM has a 2015 filly by Blame and was bred to More Than Ready for 2016.
