Vadream swoops late for G3 success

Brazen Beau sires Palace House Stakes winner at Newmarket

Vadream, a five-year-old daughter of Brazen Beau, secured her second Black Type success off the year when coming with a late run to land the G3 Palace House Stakes over five furlongs at Newmarket on Saturday, 6 May.

The Charlie Fellowes-trained mare raced mid field on the stands side group until the final furlong, she then made good progress under Kieran Shoemark to finish strongly in the closing stages and snatch victory by half-a-length from long-term leader, Live In The Dream.

Now the winner of three Stakes races, Vadream who won the G3 Bengough Stakes at Ascot at three-years-old, made a great start to this season with an impressive four-length victory in the Listed Cammidge Stakes at Doncaster in April.

Bred by Crispin Estates Ltd, Vadream is out of the Shamardal mare Her Honour, herself a half-sister to Australian G2 winner, Swashbuckling. Her Honour has produced two other winners including Stakes-placed colt Mirage Hero.

Brazen Beau is the sire of 24 Stakes winners, they are headed by On The Bubbles (G1 Manawatu Sires’ Produce Stakes) and include multiple G2 winner Pretty Brazen and Royal Ascot two-year-old winner The Ridler (G2 Norfolk Stakes). Most recently he was the sire of Zapeteo who won her fifth Stakes race when landing the G2 Sapphire Stakes and Taunting who picked up his first Listed success in the Railway Stakes in Australia.
