His dam Chasin’ The Dream is imported from the US and comes from one of their best damlines. She is out of DREAMY BLOSSOM, who is one the best to ever race in the US.

Dreamy Blossom was a 2007 All American, won the 2007 $120,000 Palm Beach Grand Classic (undefeated) and was the 2006 Tampa track champion with 19 wins for the year. She ran second in 2006 Tampa Juvenile and went from Maiden straight thru to Grade A undefeated at Tampa, winning her first 13-straight starts to open her career.

By Australia’s leading SIRE and from the SAME DAMLINE as KINLOCH BRAE

Dreamy Blossom’s dam VALORIS is a daughter of GREY’S FREESTYLE, who is also the dam of star Irish based US bred sire KINLOCH BRAE.

Kinloch Brae and Valoris  are ¾ brother and sister as Valoris is out of Grey’s Freestyle’s first litter by Molotov and Kinloch Brae is out Grey’s Freestyle’s fourth litter by Craigie Mo Town (a son of Molotov)

This damline goes back to Tish The Dish via super producers Grey’s Juliana, Representation and Lear Jet … and over the last 25 years it has produced more All Americans than any other damline.  Check out our assessment of US damlines here.
