Eucallea Equine has signed Dare to Dream (Ire) to stand at its Berrima base in the NSW Southern Highlands.
An Irish bred son of champion sire Danehill Dancer, Dare to Dream was imported to Australia as a Melbourne Cup prospect for master trainer Bart Cummings.
His career out here was curtailed through a tendon injury after a handful of starts including a narrow loss to Kelinni in the G3 VRC Lexus Stakes. He bowed out with a creditable fourth to Puissance De Lune in the G3 VRC Queen Elizabeth Stakes.
“He was raced by Sir Patrick Hogan, Dato Tan Chin Nam and Richard Pegum and they have kept ownership of him to stand at stud,” said Fiona Mylan of Eucallea Equine. “Richard reckons he has the most potential of any horse they have ever brought over here.”
Dare To Dream (Danehill Dancer – Beneventa by Most Welcome) won races in England at Sandown, Newmarket and Ayr before transferring to Australia. He will stand for an introductory fee of $2,750 (inc gst) this year.
