Super Sunset Dreaming

First starter Sunset Dreaming made an impressive winning debut at Ballarat on Gold Nugget Day, Friday, September 22.

Despite covering ground from a wide draw, the Tony & Calvin McEvoy-trained Sunset Dreaming sprinted clear in the home straight to win the Pipe Pro Directional Drilling Maiden (1100m).

Ridden by Harry Coffey, the three-year-old filly settled wide in midfield in the field of nine and approaching the home turn she was three wide with a trail.

Coffey asked Sunset Dreaming ($4.40) to sprint entering the home straight and she quickly established a winning break eventually scoring by 1-1/4 lengths from Bizot ($8.50) with Mauricio ($3.40 fav), 1-3/4 lengths away third.

Trainer Calvin McEvoy has always been impressed by Sunset Dreaming.

“She is a beautiful filly,” McEvoy said.

“We loved her at the sales, and we have loved her the whole way through.

“She has taken a bit longer to get to the races, but it was a maturity thing.

“She is a quality filly, and we were impressed how she let down today.

“I think there will be plenty of improvement from today, especially the experience.

“We wanted to see Sunset Dreaming do that today against what looked like a quality field.”

Sunset Dreaming is a half-sister to the very talented Benedetta, a winner of six of her nine starts.

“When we bought her, Benedetta had not started so her value has been improving as she was getting ready to race.

“The Red Roses is at the back of our mind, a nice race to target to get a bit of black type.”

Winning jockey Harry Coffey was taken by Sunset Dreaming’s win.

“That was a really good win, she is a likeable filly,” Coffey said.

“She does things right and I thought she lengthened nicely in the home straight after showing a nice turn of foot.

“She had trialled well, done things right in her gallops so it was good for her to come here today and get some confidence.

“I think she will be able to race through the grades.

“She should be able to go to tougher races and acquit herself well.”
