Trained by Frankie Lor and ridden by Vincent Ho, Wining Dreamer drew the outside in the field of 12 in the Class Three sprint, but was still too good in winning by half a length to make it three wins in as many starts.

“Before the race I was a little bit scared, especially having drawn gate 12 for such a young horse,” Lor said of the horse eligible for this season’s Four-Year-Old Classic Series, should his trainer opt to direct him there.

“1400 metres should be no problem, but 1600 metres, well, we need to find out later.”

Vincent Ho has ridden Winning Dreamer in each of his victories.

“He can relax, even in front, there were horses next to me and he still settled very well, he’s actually a lot more relaxed at the races than at trackwork, he’s quite nervous in the mornings,” Ho said.

“He gave me a nice sprint and stayed on well in the finish.”

A $300,000 Karaka Book 1 purchase for Tartan Meadow Bloodstock / Mr Peter KS So from the Haunui Farm draft, Winning Dreamer is a half-brother to stakes-winner Ocean Jewel.

He is the fourth winner from Group III placed Markisa, who is also the grand-dam of Group winners The Real Beel and Catch Me.

A member of the illustrious Eight Carat (GB) family, Markisa is a half-sister to Group I winner Shower of Roses and daughter of Group I winner Marquise.

With his oldest progeny just four year-olds, his sire Deep Field is proving successful in Hong Kong with five winners from 12 runners.

Deep Field stands at Newgate Farm at a fee of $55,000.
