American Dream Fourth Winner in Three Days for American Pharoah

It was a fourth winner in three days for American Pharoah on Saturday when American Dream (3f American Pharoah x Dancing Alone, by Kingmambo) broke her maiden in her second start.

Racing over 7½ furlongs on the turf at Louisiana Downs, the Peter Blum homebred broke slowly and was settled by jockey Joel Dominguez before steadily moving up through the field. As the field entered the turn, American Dream was a clear third and closing fast on the leaders.

Drawing even in midstretch, American Dream raced a little greenly once she hit the lead but in the end won by half a length while still was still pulling away.

A half-sister to Giant’s Causeway’s Grade III winner Dancing Solo and the Grade I-placed Dancing, their unraced dam Dancing Alone is a full sister to dual Grade I winner Voodoo Dancer and a half-sister to the dam of Grade I winner Pool Play. Overall, the royally bred filly counts 21 stakes horses under her first two dams.

Registering his ninth stakes winner yesterday, last year’s Champion Freshman sire is truly proving to be an international sire.

Kicking off the week with a winner in Ireland on Thursday, he’s also registered victories in the United States and Japan over the last 24 hours, led by Grade III winning Turned Aside.
