Always Dreaming's First Foal a Filly

Always Dreaming | Jon Siegel

Always Dreaming (Bodemeister-Above Perfection, by In Excess {Ire}), the 2017 GI Kentucky Derby winner, was represented by his first foal Monday, Jan. 6, when Lemon Liqueur (Exchange Rate) delivered a filly at Delia Nash's Dromingrove Farm. Bred by Nash, the filly is the third produce from Lemon Liqueur, a multiple stakes-placed half-sister to GISP Nan (High Yield), dam of Grade III winner Power Gal (Jpn) (Empire Maker).

“She is very attractive just like her daddy,” Nash said. “We are very pleased with her. She has all the attributes you hope for when you breed to a Kentucky Derby winner. We are looking forward to watching her develop.”

Lemon Liqueur's produce of 2018, a filly named Bleeker Street (Quality Road), was a $400,000 Fasig-Tipton Saratoga purchased by Peter Brant's White Birch Farm and will be trained by Chad Brown.
Always Dreaming, who was bred to 165 mares in his first year at stud in 2019, will stand the 2020 breeding season for a fee of $25,000 S&N at WinStar Farm.
