Dream Ahead Reporting to Stallion Duty

Dream Ahead, who beat Goldikova in the Qatar Prix de la Foret (Fr-I) Oct. 2 in what was his final start, has been retired for stallion duty in 2012 at Ballylinch Stud near Thomastown, Ireland. The 3-year-old son of Diktat will stand for 17,500 euros (approximately $24,100) and his book will be limited to 130 mares.

“His defeat of Goldikova in the Prix de la Foret was a lovely note to end on,” said John O’Connor, managing director of Ballylinch. “He has done everything that could have been asked of him, and there was no need to race again.”

Dream Ahead, winner of last year’s Shadwell Middle Park Stakes (Eng-I) and the Darley Prix Morny (Fr-I), was England’s co-highweighted 2-year-old male with Frankel.

No need to race again?? How about to prove himself further? I would question a horse that runs that little, not just Dream Ahead, but others that have done the same as well. His stud fee also seems a little high for a lightly proven horse. I would rather see a horse that has a longer career with some losses, than a short career with several wins.
