Karl and Cathi Glassman's Restofthestory became the first winner for her freshman sire Jess's Dream (Curlin) with a dominant score at Gulfstream Friday. Purchased for $95,000 at the OBS Spring Sale after breezing in :21 2/5, she finished second in her Aug. 8 unveiling here and was hammered down to even-money favoritism to improve this time. Seizing the early advantage, the dark bay ticked off splits of :22.54 and :46.15, cruising home to win as she pleased by 5 3/4 lengths. Mastering Bela (Cairo Prince) completed the exacta.
Jess's Dream is the first foal out of Hall of Famer Rachel Alexandra. He made just one start, a 'TDN Rising Star'-worthy debut at Saratoga, before retiring to Ocala Stud. Holiday Flare produced a He's Head Enough filly in 2019 and was most recently bred to The Big Beast.
