Golden Dreamer wires Ruthless


Golden Dreamer broke on top and kept right on going, recording a front-running, 3 3/4-length victory over Special Dream in the $67,965 Ruthless Stakes for 3-year-old fillies at Aqueduct.

The win gave Paraneck Stable, trainer Alan Klanfer, and jockey Norberto Arroyo Jr. a sweep of Aqueduct's weekend stakes. That triumvirate also took Saturday's Count Fleet Stakes with Pink Viper.

Arroyo said he thought he might be sitting off the seemingly speedy Dorm Fever and Marquis Diamond, but his filly broke so sharp he just let her go through fractions of 21.98 and 44.99 seconds while covering six furlongs in 1:10.26.

"She is so fast, she really had no trouble getting to the lead,'' Arroyo said. "Going into the turn, it was pretty noisy because everyone was chasing me. Once she switched to her left lead, it got quiet - I knew she had gotten away.''

The Ruthless was the fourth win from five career starts for Golden Dreamer, a 3-year-old daughter of Malabar Gold who sold for $25,000 as a weanling. Her only loss came in the Maid of the Mist Stakes, a race in which she ran just eight days after winning a maiden race.

"She's as professional as they come,'' said Ernie Paragallo, the authorized agent for his family-owned Paraneck Stable. "She'll stretch out. We rushed her into the [Maid of the Mist] going a mile, but there was too much speed in there.''
