Stonestreet Stable’s homebred Dream Pauline (Tapit) sailed home a geared-down six-length winner of her debut at Aqueduct Sunday. The chestnut filly, a daughter of multiple Grade I winner Dream Rush (Wild Rush) was sent off at 2-1. Outfooted early, she gradually improved her position and ranged up three wide into the stretch after a half in :46.60 and grabbed the lead with ease despite racing greenly. She strode clear with Martin Garcia wrapping up on the filly in the final sixteenth. Warrior of Light (Warrior’s Reward) was second.
Dream Rush won the 2007 GI Prioress S. and GI Test S. for West Point Thoroughbreds before selling for $3.3 million at that year’s Fasig-Tipton November Sale to Halsey Minor. Barbara Banke’s Stonestreet purchased the mare privately while in foal to A.P. Indy in 2009. Her first foal was 2012 GI Frizette S. winner Dreaming of Julia, who joined her dam in the Stonestreet broodmare band and produced a colt by Ghostzapper in 2016 and a filly by Medaglia d’Oro in 2017. Dream Rush produced a filly by Curlin in 2016 and, with no reported foal in 2017, was bred back to Medaglia d’Oro. Her Curlin yearling RNA’d for $875,000 at this year’s Keeneland September sale.
