Grade One-winning mare Dream Tree is in foal to Hill ‘N Dale farm’s Curlin, owners Phoenix Thoroughbreds have revealed.
This will be the first foal for the daughter of Uncle Mo, who was retired at the end of last year having won five of her seven career starts.
The highest-profile of those victories came in the Grade One Starlet Stakes at Los Alamitos recording a first success at the top level for her Dubai-based owners at their first attempt. As a three-year-old, she went on to claim a couple of Grade Two wins taking both the Virgenes and Prioress Stakes.
“Dream Tree has been a special horse for us,” said Phoenix Thoroughbreds head of US operations Tom Ludt. “She had a great will to win and was a true athlete. Considering her bloodlines, coupled with her race record, I see no reason she won’t be a top-quality broodmare. By sending her to a leading stallion such as Curlin we have given her the best chance of making a great start to her new career.”
A graduate of the Fasig-Tipon Florida Horses in training Sale, Dream Tree is out of the winning Afleet Alex mare Afleet Maggi and from the family of Grade 1 winners Golden Ticket and Well Chosen, and Irish champion Tomahawk.
