Just A Dream Wins NZ Gr3 Christchurch Casino Easter Cup
Windsor Park's champion stallion Volksraad maintained his vice-like grip on the NZ Sires Premiership with another Kiwi Group winner when 6YO mare Just A Dream (Volksraad-Majestic Angel, by Imperial Seal) made it back-to-back stakes wins in the NZ$70,000 Gr3 Christchurch Casino Easter Stakes (1600m) at Riccarton Park. Ridden by Terry Moseley for trainer Neill Ridley, Just A Dream was a neck ahead of 4YO gelding Victorious Dancer (Victory Dance-Tsiblento, by Norman Pentaquad), with a further head back to 4YO mare Smitten Kitten (Volksraad-Vanderbilt, by Last Tycoon). A NZ$30,000 yearling at the 2002 NZ Bloodstock Premier Sale at Karaka, Just A Dream now has 7 wins & 7 placings from 28 starts.
