In The Stud Presented By Kentucky Equine Research: Always Dreaming, First Weanlings Of 2020

Winning the Kentucky Derby is the kind of accomplishment that speaks for itself on a stallion’s resume, but WinStar Farm’s Always Dreaming has plenty else to say with his record.

On this week’s episode of In The Stud, we speak with WinStar’s Liam O’Rourke about the 2017 Derby winner whose first foals are weanlings of 2020, and we cover the influences that shine through from the top and bottom of the stallion’s page.

A 6-year-old son of Bodemeister, Always Dreaming gained notoriety on the Triple Crown trail with a five-length victory in the Grade 1 Florida Derby. That effort sent him off as the favorite in the Kentucky Derby, where he drew clear to prevail by 2 3/4 lengths. He retired with four wins in 11 starts for earnings of $2,415,860.

Always Dreaming is out of the Grade 3-winning In Excess mare Above Perfection, making him a half-brother to Grade 1 winner Hot Dixie Chick and Grade 2 winner Positive Spirit.

The In The Stud video series, put together by our friends at EquiSport Photos, features up-and-coming names in the stallion ranks, with a focus on those whose first foals are weanlings of 2020. Paulick Report bloodstock editor Joe Nevills interviews farm staff about the stallion’s appealing qualities and what mares might work best with them, while giving viewers and potential breeders a chance to see the stallion on the walk and on the racetrack.
