Dream Vacation - An incredible 64% winners to foals in NZ and Australia

As we get closer to the breeding season once again, we have been looking through the credentials of some of the harness racing sires available in Australasia.

Most results have been in line with what we thought they would be until we did an analysis of the trotting stallion Dream Vacation.

Only ever available in the Southern Hemisphere via frozen semen, this well bred son of Pine Chip has an unbelievable record down under.

In New Zealand Dream Vacation has been available since 2003 and his oldest crop is now ten years old.

In that time he has only sired 88 live foals of which 67 have started and 56 of those have been winners.

His best winner to date has been this years Trotting Masters Champion Stent 1:56 ($471,572)  while he also has seven other $100,000 winners including such smart types as Real Deal Yankee 1:57.4 ($301,382), Leighton Hest 1:56.7 ($205,242), Cyclone U Bolt 1:54.5 ($194,862) and Dream Machine 1:57.6 ($159.453).

Overall he has 19 trotters that have earned more than $50,000 and 12 in 2:00 with total stake earning in New Zealand to date of $ 2,682,819.

Foals    Winners     % Winners/Foals    $50,000 Winners   % $50,000 Winners/Foals  

 88             56                   63.63                           19                                   21.59

In Australia Dream Vacation has also been available since 2003 and his oldest crop is currently ten years old.

In that time he has sired just 35 live foals that are three years or older for 25 starters and 23 winners including such smart types as King Kong Cooma 2:00 ($100,348), Likeaplay Boy 2:02.1 ($96,444), Dougie 1:57.5 ($89,464), Aldebaran Maori 2:01.7 ($74,581) and Purplepeopleater 2:00.7 ($64,288).

Overall Dream Vacation has 6 $50,000 winners and total stake earnings are $1,004,948.

Foals     Winners     % Winners/Foals    $50,000 Winners   % $50,000 Winners/Foals

  35            23                       65.71                        6                                   17.14

We are unaware of any other stallion available to trotting breeders in Australasia that comes anywhere close to these numbers.

Available to New Zealand breeders again this season through Nevele R for $5,000 on 42 day positive test, Dream Vacation continues to be great value for money for down under breeders.
