Paramount Dream - Filly with a future

Harness racing and the Dickie family have had a long association and that looks set to continue for a long time into the future the way John and his son Josh have been churning out the winners this season.

Ever since their move up to Clevedon from their former base in the Waikato, the father and son training partnership have been regularly winning races at Alexandra Park.

They started tonight at Alexandra Park in the same vein, winning race one with the three year old trotting filly, Paramount Dream.

The daughter of Pegasus Spur was slowly but safely away from barrier two and settled three back on the outer in the running line.

Josh didn't make his move until 400 metres from home where he quickly swept up to the leaders three and four wide and ran away for an emphatic four length victory.

She trotted the 2200 metres in 2:52.9, a mile rate of 2:06.4 with closing sectionals of 60.2 and 29.6.

Josh had double reason to celebrate after tonights success.

" Its my birthday today so it is nice to win one for the stable."

" She is a lovely filly and has a really good future."

"She did it really easily tonight and knocked off a bit in the straight when clear," Josh said.

A $50,000 purchase at the New Zealand Premier Yearling Sale at Christchurch, Paramont Dream is a full sister to a former Dickie trained star in Paramount Geegee 1:57.3 ($561,342) and a half sister to another talented trotter in Paramount Queen 1:59.7 ($121,691). 

Tonights victory was the 22nd for the season for the Dickie partnership and they are closing in quickly on lasts season mark of 25 wins which was there first season in partnership.

PS: Josh and John made it two for the night when Speeding Spur took out race six
