Dream Ahead's Ringbolt Shocks in SA Sires Produce

Mark Smith - Saturday May 9

Former Emirates Park shuttler Dream Ahead (USA) has been on a good run of late and he looks to have a nice prospect in the Tony and Calvin McEvoy-trained 2yo gelding Ringbolt who scored a surprise win in Saturday’s Group III SA Sires' Produce Stakes at Morphettville.

A troubled fourth when making his debut at Balaklava on April 29, Ringbolt was on his best behaviour here under John Allen to win untroubled by one and a quarter lengths from his stablemate Violinist (Fastnet Rock) by a length and a quarter with Crown Mint (Hallowed Crown) a half-length back in third.Ringbolt as a yearling

Passed in short of his $50,000 reserve when offered by Newhaven Park Stud at the 2019 Magic Millions Gold Coast Yearling Sale, Ringbolt is the third winner from as many foals out of the imported Shamardal (USA) mare Maxi Dress whose dam Fashion Trade is a three-quarter sister to the former Chris Waller-trained, $2 million earner Foreteller a triple Group 1 winning son of Dansili.

Maxi Dress has a weanling colt from the final Australian crop of Dream Ahead (USA) but missed to Lean Mean Machine last spring.

Bred by Seymour Bloodstock, Ringbolt becomes the 28th stakes-winner for the 5-time Group 1 winner Dream Ahead (USA) who now stands at Haras de Grandcamp, France at a fee of €12,000.
