Lantern Hill Purchase Offers Fast Return
November 01, 2020
Sweetest Chant (G-3) stakes winner Dreaming of Liz was foaled at Lantern Hill Farm in 2005, and we were lucky to buy her back last year at the Keeneland November Sale.
Yesterday her two year old Speightster filly showed us how strong the karma is for us and this family:

Odds-on favorite Dreaming of Drew delivered on her pari-mutuel promise in the 75th edition of the CA$250,000 (US$187,653) Princess Elizabeth Stakes for Canadian-foaled 2-year-old fillies Oct. 31 at Woodbine.
With blinkers added, the Speightster filly set her sights on her first added-money score, leading all the way in 1-1/16-mile feature on Tapeta for jockey Patrick Husbands.
Dreaming of Drew set fractions of :24 to the quarter, :48.71 to the half, and 1:13.42 to three-quarters with Bodacious Miss applying pressure on the final turn and Il Malocchio moving into contention from mid-pack.
As Dreaming of Drew turned back Bodacious Miss and floated away from her foes down the stretch, Il Malocchio came through to finish second with the stalking Emmeline rallying to finish third over Bodacious Miss.
The chestnut filly, who won by 3 3/4 lengths in 1:44.07, concluded her five-race freshman campaign with two wins and two seconds, plus a fourth when facing top company in the Natalma Stakes (G1T) last time out.
"She's a dream," said Barb Minshall, who trains the promising youngster for Hoolie Racing Stable. "She's been a great filly for us and I'm really looking forward to the future with her. Hopefully, she'll be a Woodbine Oaks contender next year."
Dreaming of Drew was bred by WinStar Farm out of the grade 3-winning El Prado mare Dreaming
of Liz, and was a $95,000 RNA from Woodford Thoroughbreds' consignment to the 2019 Fasig-Tipton Kentucky July Yearling Sale.
