Price’s Heart Dreams of Doomben

Caulfield-based trainer Mick Price will launch Heart Of Dreams’ winter carnival campaign this Saturday at the Gold Coast hoping the five-year-old shows good form heading towards Group 1 glory at Doomben.

Heart Of Dreams

Heart Of Dreams will make their Queensland debut in the Hollindale Stakes at the Gold Coast

Show A Heart gelding and dual Group 1 winner Heart Of Dreams is one of 13 horses nominated for the $300,000 Group 2 Hollindale Stakes (1800m) at the Gold Coast this Saturday.

The race will be the first Queensland start for Heart Of Dreams whose main aim this season is the $500,000 Group 1 Doomben Cup (2020m) on May 21.

There were 47 nominations taken for the 2011 Doomben Cup last week with early markets lead by Chris Waller’s in-form import My Kingdom Of Fife ($6) who won the Group 1 Queen Elizabeth Stakes (2000m) last start and the John Wallace-trained Gold Coast galloper Shoot Out ($6.50).

Heart Of Dreams occupies the third line of betting at $8 followed by WA warhorse Scenic Shot ($8.50) and Flying Spur seven-year-old Syreon ($9), third to stablemate My Kingdom Of Fife in the Queen Elizabeth, as the single-figure favourites in the futures Doomben Cup odds.

Doomben Cup favourite My Kingdom Of Fife is also nominated for Saturday’s Hollindale Stakes, the horse formerly owned by the queen looking to maintain their perfect Australian race record, as has Scenic Shot and Shoot Out.

Winner of the 2009 Australian Guineas and Underwood Stakes, Heart Of Dreams has consistently performed at the highest level over his 25 start career that has produced over $1.5 million in earnings to date.

This season after running a disappointing seventh to Whitefriars first-up in the Group 2 Australia Stakes (1200m), Heart Of Dreams returned to form when defeated by a mere nose by the now-retired Typhoon Tracy in the Group 1 CF Orr Stakes (1400m) in early February.

Heart Of Dreams went on to win the Group 2 St George Stakes (1800m) at his home track on Blue Diamond Stakes Day before failing to impress when eighth to former Melbourne Cup winner Shocking in the Group 2 Australian Cup (2000m).

After the Australian Cup, Heart Of Dreams most recently ran a game third when finishing three and a half lengths behind boom sprinter Hay List in the Group 1 All Aged Stakes (1400m) at Randwick on April 23.

“He had a little freshen-up following his Australian Cup run and he pulled up in good order after he had a hard run on a heavy track in the All-Aged Stakes behind Hay List,” Price said of Heart Of Dreams’ campaign.

“I thought he should have run second in the All-Aged.”

The 1800m of the Hollindale Stakes also looks ideal for Heart Of Dreams who won the St George Stakes at this distance in February as well as his second Group 1 win in the Underwood over 1800m two years back.

“I think 1800 metres is his right distance but he’s going on to the Doomben Cup after this run,” Price said.

Price will also be represented at the Gold Coast meet by Rightfully Yours, the fellow Show A Heart gelding nominated for the $175,000 Listed Prime Minister’s Cup (1300m).

The now six-year-old was officially second to Mr Hornblower in the 2009 Prime Minister’s Cup after losing on protest and is back to set the record straight.

“He’s in good order but I think he might have been slightly better the day he lost the Prime Minister’s Cup on protest,” Price said of Rightfully Yours who has had a recent fetlock operation.

Both of Price’s hores will be ridden by champion hoop Damien Oliver on Saturday and beyond in Queensland.

The Hollindale Stakes is one of two Group races running at the Gold Coast this Saturday along with the $125,000 Group 3 Gold Coast Guineas (1200m) that attracted 28 entries.
