Idle keeps Drams alive!

 Idle Dreams has kept dreams alive after fighting off all challengers to break her Maiden Status at Sandown over 1400m.

Jockey Stephen Baster showed great initiative in taking Idle Dreams to the front when the pace slackened and he was caught wide. This proved to be the decisive move in the race with Baster then allowing Idle Dreams to come back underneath him and conserve valuable energy.

Approaching the bend, Idle Dreams slipped away from the field and gained a few lengths by hugging the rail and then when challenged fought strongly, as she has done in her last 2 starts, to rally and win.

This horse has now been with the Cloud 9 Stable for her past 3 starts, and since being transferred, hasn't finished further back than 4th, including 2 runs in town. This is another great example of how the change of environment can turn a horse around in a matter of weeks.

Congratulations to all involved, especially our Assistant Trainer Steve Smilie and the Staff at Cloud 9, who have kept the operation running smoothly while Brent was away at the Magic Millions Sales this past week purchasing our future champions.
