First foal is a filly for WinStar Farm’s Always Dreaming
Monday, January 6, 2020

WinStar Farm’s Always Dreaming, winner of the 2017 Kentucky Derby (G1) and Florida Derby (G1), sired his first reported foal Jan. 6 when a filly was born at Delia Nash’s Dromingrove Farm. Bred by Nash, the filly is the third foal out of the stakes-placed Exchange Rate mare Lemon Liqueur.

 “She is very attractive just like her daddy,” Nash said. “We are very pleased with her. She has all the attributes you hope for when you breed to a Kentucky Derby winner. We are looking forward to watching her develop.”

Lemon Liqueur also has a newly-turned 2-year-old filly by Quality Road named Bleecker Street who sold to Peter Brant for $400,000 at last year’s Fasig-Tipton Saratoga Select Yearling Sale and will be trained by Chad Brown.

Always Dreaming was an earner of $2.4 million on the racetrack for owners Brooklyn Boyz Stables, Teresa Viola Racing Stables, Siena Farm LLC, West Point Thoroughbreds, MeB Racing Stables LLC, and St. Elias Stables.

Trained by Todd Pletcher and bred by Santa Rosa Partners, Always Dreaming hails from the dominant Unbridled sire line and represents four straight generations of the line that finished first or second in the Kentucky Derby. He broke his maiden by an eye-catching 11 ½ lengths in his 3-year-old debut, captured the Florida Derby by five lengths in the fastest time since Alydar in 1978—1:47.47, and validated those scores with a valiant victory in the Run for the Roses.

Always Dreaming, who covered 165 mares in his first book, is set to stand his second season at stud for $25,000 S&N. For more information, please contact Sean Tugel, Liam O’Rourke or Chris Knehr at 859-873-1717 or visit WinStarFarm.com.
