GRAND PRAIRIE, Texas - Dreamsandvisions rallied through the stretch to capture the $75,000 Assault in one of six restricted stakes run Saturday at Lone Star Park during the annual Stars of Texas Day.

Total stakes purses were $465,000.

The Assault was the top race for older horses, and Dreamsandvisions ($6.20) was content to sit about five lengths behind the pace set by Senor Amigo, who led the field through fractions of 22.92 seconds for the opening quarter and 45.45 for the half-mile mark. Dreamsandvisions moved to the lead in the stretch, and went on to cover the mile and a sixteenth for Texas-breds in 1:43.77.

"When I asked him to run he was there for me," said Luis Quinonez, who rode the winner for trainer Steven Duke.

Dreamsandvisions won by two and three quarter lengths over Senor Amigo. It was another length and a half back in third to Goosey Moose.

Dreamsandvisions earned $45,000 for the win, which was his sixth from 16 career starts. A three-time stakes winner, his earnings now stand at $214,481. Dreamsandvisions is a 4-year-old gelding by Kipling and he races for Sandra Duke.

Steven Duke said Dreamsandvisions will be pointed for the $150,000 Evangeline Mile at Evangeline Downs in Opelousas, La., on August 12.

Be a Resident still perfect

Be a Resident remained undefeated in three career starts when he withstood pressure throughout en route to a length and a quarter win in the $125,000 colts and geldings division of the Texas Stallion Stakes for 2-year-olds. Holy Mission finished second in the five and a half furlong race, a length and a half clear of third-place finisher Mary's Gray Boy.

Be a Resident ($5.20) set the pace between rivals, running the opening quarter in 21.86 seconds and the half-mile in 45.12. He went on to cover the distance in 1:03.92.

"He is game," said Cliff Berry, who rode Be a Resident for trainer Bret Calhoun. "He's got a lot of class and a will to win."

Be a Resident won the $100,000 colts and geldings division of the Texas Thoroughbred Association Sales Futurity in June. His other win came in a trial for that race, on May 26. Be a Resident has now earned $145,584. He races for Wayne Sanders and Larry Hirsch.

Wrenice wins maiden in fillies division

Wrenice drew off to a six and a quarter length win in the $125,000 fillies division of the Texas Stallion Stakes. Stage Stop finished second, a half-length in front of third-place finisher Lady Be Tru.

Wrenice ($8.20) led the field through fractions of 21.32 seconds for the opening quarter and 44.56 for the half-mile mark before completing the five and a half furlongs in 1:04.13. It was the first career win for Wrenice, who entered the Stallion Stakes off a runner-up finish in the $100,000 fillies division of the Texas Thoroughbred Association Sales Futurity.

"Every race she's gotten better and better and today put it all together," said Randy Mayfield, who trains Wrenice for Stewart Hamblen.

Bobby Walker Jr. rode the filly, who earned $75,000 for the win, which came in her fourth career starts. She is a daughter of the Kingmambo stud Uncle Abbie.

Rain on Monday a stakes winner

Rain on Monday, who is a full brother to multiple stakes-winning sprinter Boots on Sunday, collected the first stakes win of his career when he edged Groovy Luck by a head in the $40,000 Harold V. Goodman Memorial. It was another three-quarters of a length back in third to Samba Jones.

Rain on Monday ($6.40) settled off the pace set by Groovy Luck and rallied in the stretch, covering the six and a half furlongs for 3-year-olds bred in Texas in 1:16.14. Justin Shepherd rode the winner for trainer Steve Asmussen.

* Shesabigcat ($6.80) gave Calhoun and Berry the first of their two stakes wins on the card when she led throughout for a two and three quarter length win in the $60,000 Allen Bogan Memorial. Go Girlfriend Go finished second, a nose in front of I.B.'s Halo.

* Open Meadows ($5) led throughout to capture the $40,000 Valor Farm for 3-year-old fillies bred in Texas. She covered the six furlongs in 1:10.53. Casey Lambert was aboard for trainer Jack Bruner.

* Handle on the 11-race card was $2,046,667. Attendance ontrack was 6,149.
