Dream Ahead is a great value source of speed - standing for just 12,000 Euro, in 2019 he produced more stakes winning sprinters than any other European sire.
We had the inside track on this colt, as we already owned a stake in his talented unraced half-brother, Lexington Force - who has since made a sparkling debut: https://youtu.be/A6R3WVkmW1M (in light blue, drawn wide)
This is a chance to buy into the dam's next foal as he limbers up for his 2-y-o season. This the last small piece of this colt available anywhere.
The dam, Fox Force Five, has already produced the French 96-rated Fox Tin from a very modest stallion in Tin Horse (just one 100+ performer from first 4 crops) - and now she has the highly promising Lexington Force on her c.v. she is a proven quality producer.
This Dream Ahead colt is a sharper sort than Lexington Force and on course to be ready from mid-summer. The buying team also report that this colt had a little bit more quality about him at the sales.
He certainly looks the part and was all but stolen for just 30,000 Euro at auction.
Ventura Kingdom goes to the ideal trainer in Mark Johnston who has already trained two of Dream Ahead's best progeny with RPR's of 110+ (Dark Vision, Love Dreams).
With his athletic looks, a proven quality dam and classy sire this colt has everything in place to make an impact at 2 and to train on.
He must give syndicate members a cracking chance of connecting with a 90+ animal, hopefully more.
