Dream result for Segenhoe Stud

Irish Dream continued her winning run for new owners Segenhoe Stud in the Carlton Mid Hcp (1200m) at Eagle Farm on Saturday. 

The daughter of former Arrowfield shuttler Falbrav was sold by Heinrich Bloodstock for $150,000 at the Magic Millions National Sale earlier this month. 

Irish Dream (4m Falbrav – Queen Emma by Irish River) had opened her account for the new connections at Doomben on June 15.  She created a new class record of 1.09.68s on Saturday with a half-length victory over Lifebuoy (Easy Rocking) and I’m Ruthless (Redoute’s Choice).

“Segenhoe Stud bought her off Gillian Heinrich and she will either have a full spring campaign or be covered and have one or two starts in Melbourne,” Moody said.  “She’s already stakes placed but more black type will only add to her career as a broodmare.”

Irish Dream is from French winner Queen Emma who was originally bought out here by Tony Santic in June 2004. 

Queen Emma is a daughter of Riverman sire Irish River and the Makybe owner has an affinity with that sireline.  Santic imported Riverman mare Tugela in 1999 and she foaled his Melbourne Cup legend Makybe Diva.

Queen Emma has changed hands twice since arriving in Australia.  Santic sold her to Silton Bloodstock for $36,000 in 2007 and she made just $3,000 at Oaklands Junction last year.

The mare has a 2yo colt named Cheltenham Park (Churchill Downs) and has since foaled colts by Tuscanos and Bianconi.
