Dream Supreme and Country Hideaway, both daughters of multiple grade I winner Seeking The Gold, highlight the list of five fillies and mares contesting Saturday's Distaff Breeders Cup Handicap (gr. III), going seven furlongs at Aqueduct.
Hall of Fame trainer Bill Mott took over Dream Supreme's training duties after the filly's juvenile season, and in her first two stakes tries last year she ran fourth in both the Acorn (gr. I) and Prioress (gr. II) Stakes. In late July, Dream Supreme was a different horse. She rallied from off the pace after a troubled beginning to take the grade I Test Stakes, and then followed that up with a win over Country Hideaway and older rivals in the grade I Ballerina.
Country Hideaway recorded three wins from eight starts last year, and came back this year to win an allowance race at Gulfstream Park, rallying from off the pace to win going away.
Completing the list of list of entrants for the Distaff Breeders Cup are: Critical Eye (Herberto Castillo Jr.); My Wild Rose (Cornelio Velasquez); Dream Supreme (Aaron Gryder); Country Hideaway (Javier Castellano); Folly Dollar (Shaun Bridgmohan).
