'To Dream' tries to keep streak alive

Email

CALGARY, Alberta - Trainer Bob Kingston sends out To Dream Again in search of her third consecutive stakes win at the meet in Monday's $50,000 Ken Pearson Memorial here at Stampede Park.

A 6-year-old who was claimed for $30,000 last July, To Dream Again has blossomed for Kingston after spending most of her career in the allowance and claiming ranks.

To Dream Again faces six other fillies and mares in the one-mile Ken Pearson Memorial, including entrymate Speedy Gone Sally.

Speedy Gone Sally, coming off two troubled trips, is expected to show more speed this time around to ensure the pace is honest for the late-running To Dream Again. Speedy Gone Sally was shuffled back at the break in the M.R. Jenkins Memorial here April 30.

Speedy Gone Sally drew the outside post and will be ridden by Perry Winters. Stephan Heiler replaces the injured Leanne Painter aboard To Dream Again, who breaks from post 4. To Dream Again is the 120-pound highweight.

Hastings invader Stole One was also compromised at the break in the Jenkins and is expected to contest the lead this time around. Quincy Welch, who booked off his mounts on Friday after being involved in a traffic accident, is named to ride Stole One, a speedy 5-year-old who drew post 2.

Wild Bender, champion 3-year-old filly on this circuit last year, closed well in the Jenkins in her first start of the year and will appreciate the extra two furlongs here.
