Dream Peace On Target for New York

Belmont Park

Etreham Farm’s Dream Peace breezed five furlongs on Belmont’s turf course in 1:01.96 seconds on Sunday as she aims for a start in next Saturday’s Grade 2, $200,000 New York.

 

A Group 2 winner in France, Dream Peace seeks her first win in North America, having finished second or third in all four starts since relocating from Europe. Last year, she was second in the Grade 1 Diana and third in the Grade 1 Flower Bowl Invitational and Grade 1 E. P. Taylor. She has made one start this year, finishing third as the odds-on favorite in the Grade 3, 1 1/16-mile Beaugay on May 4 at Belmont.

 

“She’s on target for the New York,” said Brown. “I thought she breezed very well. We freshened her up. Of course, there are some bigger races down the road we’d like to get to, but she really needs to move forward off her first race of the year before I start planning anything. So far, she’s training really well.”

 

Dream Peace’s biggest win, the 2011 Group 2 Prix de La Nonette at Deauville, came at the New York’s 1 ¼-mile distance.

 

“The [Beaugay] was a little too short for her and the turf was very firm that day,” said Brown. “Heading into the New York, I would welcome a little bit of rain. She appreciates some give in the ground. I’m not sure I’ll get it, but one way or another I’m going to run her.”

 

On the worktab at Saratoga for Brown was Normandy Invasion, who is preparing for the Saratoga Race Course meet. Second in the Grade 1 Wood Memorial and fourth in the Grade 1 Kentucky Derby, Normandy Invasion breezed four furlongs on the Oklahoma training track in 49.30 seconds.
