Dreamaway withdrawn from Cups double

West Australian Derby winner Dreamaway is out of contention for the Caulfield and Melbourne Cups.  The filly took time to adapt to new surroundings at Mornington and her spring campaign is well behind schedule.

The More Than Ready filly was sent east by owner Bob Peters after an outstanding autumn that included wins in the G3 Champion Fillies Stakes (1600m), LR Ascot Thousand Guineas (1800m), LR Natasha Stakes (2200m), G3 WA Oaks (2400m) and G1 WA Derby (2400m).

Dreamaway (3f More Than Ready – Legal Consent by Danehill) was transferred from Grant Williams to Dean Binaisse last month.  “The filly was stressed when arriving at Dean’s stable,” Peters said.  “She has settled in now but is more than a month away from trialling.”

Binaisse will aim Dreamaway for mares races late in the spring carnival or she could be spelled and brought back for the Melbourne autumn.

Dreamaway is by Vinery champion More Than Ready and her dam Legal Consent is a half-sister to Miss Margaret (Marscay) who was a G1 winner of the VRC Chrysler Stakes and South Australian Oaks for Peters and his wife Sandra.

Legal Consent’s first foal New Spice (Old Spice) won three Listed races at Ascot and he also claimed the City of Dandenong Cup at Sandown.

Legal Consent has a yearling filly by More Than Ready that sold for $410,000 at the 2011 Gold Coast Magic Millions.  She delivered a Street Cry filly in November and was bred back to Medaglia D’Oro.
