Dream, a daughter to millionaire Dream Supreme and a sister Hopeful S. (G1) winner Majestic Warrior. The colt is also a half-brother to multiple stakes winner Wind Fire.

Just behind the colt was a $575,000 filly, hip No. 9, consigned by Legacy Bloodstock and purchased by Hugo Merry Bloodstock. Already named Flying Pioneer, her dam Flying Spur placed in the Kentucky Oaks (G1) and is out of four-time Grade 1 winner Lakeway.
