With the arrival today of Chase The Dream from the all-star stables of Purdon/Rasmussen ahead of the Group 1 $200,000 Sky Racing WA Derby, Top WA trainer Gary Hall Snr will be hard at work putting what he hopes to be winning touches on local harness racing hope Chicago Bull.

Lets Chase The Dream (as it will be known in WA) will be stabled at Greg and Skye Bond’s property to contest the WA Derby prelude on Friday night and will most likely be driven by Gary Hall Jnr.

Chicago Bull will have the week off after securing a spot in the Derby with an emphatic win over Sprinter and Cant Refuse who sat parked for the entire race in last Friday night's Group 2 Western Gateway Pace.

“He is such a professional little race horse, he does what you want him too. I was pretty confident in the run… we know how fast he is and I was wrapped with the run we got” – Gary Hall Jnr

In a post-race interview with Gary Hall Snr, he sung Chicago Bull's praises.

“He is a winner, good horses win... We go into the WA Derby now, not confident with Chase The Dream coming over, but they are an even bunch of 3yo’s…

...I think it’s fantastic they’re coming over. I am worried though, if that horse wins there will be a truck load of super-stars here for the Inters!”

Also on his way west is (OUR) Sky Major who will be trained by Justin Prentice.

“I couldn’t be happier, I pick him up Monday night and I can’t wait to get him home” said Justin.

Our Sky Major's condition will be assessed by Prentice when he arrives but it’s more than likely he will head to a paddock briefly to acclimatise to the Australian conditions.

“He will probably have one or two weeks off and have a brief winter campaign and then set him up for the summer carnival”
