Monday, 6th March 2017

At Ascot racecourse in Perth, Western Australia, Emirates Park's 5-time Gr1-winning shuttler Dream Ahead (Diktat-Land Of Dreams, by Cadeaux Genereux) added a black-type success when 3YO filly Awaken (Dream Ahead-Mystic Hour, by Redoute's Choice) scored by 1.25 lengths in the $100,000 Listed Ascot 1000 Guineas (1800m) for 3YO fillies, over fellow 3YO fillies Precious Memories (Stratum-Precious Moment, by Charge Forward) & Just Like Fire (Sakhee's Secret-Jarna's Choice, by Torrential). This was the first stakes winner for Awaken who advanced her record to 2 wins and 1 placing from 3 starts for $76,175 earnings. A homebred for prominent WA owners and breeders Bob & Sandra Peters, Awaken is a direct descendant of grand producer Princess Tracy, ancestress of Horse of the Year Typhoon Tracy, and Gr1 winners Danasinga, Master of Design, and Suntagonal.
