West Point Thoroughbreds sells interest in Dream Rush
West Point Thoroughbreds has sold an interest in our multiple graded stakes winning three-year-old filly Dream Rush to John Sikura's Hill N' Dale Farm. Terms of the deal were undisclosed.
A daughter of Wild Rush, Dream Rush was purchased by agent Buzz Chace for $285,000 as a two-year-old in training on behalf of West Point Thoroughbreds and Lewis G. Lakin at the 2006 OBS February sale. Dream Rush has won four of five career starts by a combined margin of over twenty-two-lengths. In her last start, Dream Rush tied the stakes record in the Grade 2 Nassau County Breeders' Cup Stakes at Belmont on May 5th. Dream Rush will continue to run in West Point Thoroughbreds' silks and will continue to be trained by Rick Violette, Jr.
"I am delighted to share an ownership position in such an outstanding filly," said Hill N' Dale President John G. Sikura. "I have long admired both Terry Finley and the West Point Thoroughbreds organization, and I look forward to continued racing success. Dream Rush is an elite filly with all of the tools to eventually become a great broodmare."
West Point Thoroughbreds founder and President Terry Finley said, "Good horses are expensive in this day and age, and Dream Rush is more than a very good horse. Her trainer Rick Violette has done an exceptional job with her. He is a superb horseman, and his care and training of this filly are indicative of his skills. We look forward to Dream Rush's continued success and sharing them with John."
