Dream Of Dreams Finally Wins Diamond Jubilee

The Diamond Jubilee is a Breeders’ Cup “Win and You’re In” event, with Dream Of Dreams receiving an automatic berth in the Turf Sprint at Del Mar this November.

Dream Of Dreams was quickest from the barriers as the 9/5 stateside favorite under Ryan Moore and mustered enough courage to pull clear in the late stages to defeat the pacesetting Glen Shiel by 1 length in the 6-furlong sprint. Dream Of Dreams, a 7-year-old gelded son of Dream Ahead who lost this race by a head in both 2019 and 2020, won his second consecutive start and now sports a record of 31-9-9-2 for owner Saeed Suhail.

“I am delighted – the horse deserves it,” Stoute said. “The past 2 years, he has been beaten a head finishing fastest of all, so I am really thrilled for him. He loves a little cut in the ground, but I don’t think he’s run on ground quite as soft as this, so I was a little concerned. Ryan had it all planned and it all worked out.”

Art Power took third by 3/4 of a length over Happy Power, who necked out Garrus for fourth. Sonaiyla, Nahaarr, Ventura Rebel, Royal Commando, Summerghand, Final Song, and Namos completed the order of finish. Emaraaty Ana and Starman scratched.

Dream Of Dreams returned $5.80 to win and $2.80 to place. Glen Shiel brought back $4 to place. Art Power paid $3.60 to place.
