Dream Master Sheds Maiden Tag In Style

Aug 02, 2017

Consistent galloper Dream Master appreciated a change of gear and riding tactics when he raced to an impressive maiden win at Ballina last Friday.

Dream Master was formerly with Chris Waller in Sydney but was one of three maiden gallopers Ontrack Thoroughbreds transferred to Toby Edmonds on the Gold Coast in late March.

Dream Master at Ballina "Dream Master, Impregnable and Knockoura were all going ok but not looking likely to be successful in city races down south so we made the decision to place them with Toby.

"Impregnable has won three from three and Dream Master won at Ballina, while Knockoura has been unlucky when running second at his last two starts. Hopefully he clears maidens over 1600 metres at the Sunshine Coast on Sunday," said Ontrack Managing Director Grant Morgan.

Trainer Toby Edmonds admitted Dream Master took longer than anticipated to quit maidens.

"He was very unlucky at his first start for us when fourth at Grafton and since then little has gone right for the horse.

"At Ballina we put blinkers on him and decided to be aggressive from the wide barrier draw and that plan worked perfectly when rider Jeff Lloyd was able to find the rail fairly early.

"With the blinkers on he was a different horse and he focused on the job at hand and won with a great deal of authority.

"Hopefully that gear change has turned him around and he can go on with the good work," said Toby Edmonds
