Gooree sprinter Dreamscape has been retired to stand at Widden Stud this year. He is a son of leading sire Choisir and will join Gooree owned Northern Meteor on the Widden roster.
“Dreamscape was a top class sprinter with a world class pedigree,” Widden’s Antony Thompson said. “We have enjoyed a long and fruitful association with Gooree Stud and are delighted to stand Dreamscape for Mr Cojuangco and his family.”
Dreamscape was trained by Gai Waterhouse and endured an interrupted 2YO career as a result of EI. He was thrown in at the deep end on debut for the G3 AJC Up and Coming Stakes (1200m) at Warwick Farm and emerged triumphant to defeat subsequent G1 performers Aichi and Duporth.
Two starts later Dreamscape snared the G2 AJC Stan Fox Stakes (1400m) and he trained on at four to win the G3 AJC Liverpool City Cup (1300m) beating G1 winners Triple Honour and Mr Baritone.
He retires lightly raced with the overall record of four wins and two places from 11 starts. “He was one of the most exciting colts in my yard,” Waterhouse recalled. “He is an athlete of the highest calibre, hails from a marvellous sire producing family and has smashing looks.”
Dreamscape is by Champion Coolmore shuttler Choisir from blue-blooded USA import Faith in Dreams (Ferdinand). He will stand at a fee of $9,900 (inc gst).
