No Goosing Around For Dreaming Of Julia
Stonestreet Stables' 3YO filly Dreaming of Julia (A P Indy-Dream Rush, by Wild Rush) is the 1-2 favourite for Saturday's Gr1 Mother Goose Stakes to be run at Belmont over 8.5 furlongs, reports bloodhorse.com. Trainer Todd Pletcher pointed out, "I don't really think she lost any credibility in the Oaks because she was annihilated at the start, and if that wasn't bad enough, she got stopped later in the race. I thought she ran very well in the race, considering everything she tried to overcome, and we're hoping to get her back on course." Dreaming of Julia was fourth in the Gr1 Kentucky Oaks and has won 4 races (including 2013's Gr2 Gulfstream Oaks over 1800m, 2012's Gr1 Frizette Stakes over 8 furlongs for juvenile fillies & 2012's Listed Meadow Star Stakes) and placed in 2 (including the 2012's Gr1 Breeders Cup Juvenile Fillies over 8.5 furlongs) of her 7 starts for earnings of US$814,500.
