Hallowed Dreams, who made a name for herself in 2000 when she won her first 16 races to equal a modern-day record for consecutive wins held at the time by Citation and Cigar, has produced a major Quarter Horse winner. The Louisiana-bred Thoroughbred mare is the dam of A Dream To Remember, who won the $299,843 Hobbs America Futurity (gr. I) over 400 yards at Zia Park Oct. 7.
A Dream To Remember has other Thoroughbred connections. The filly is co-owned by R.D. Hubbard, who once headed Hollywood Park and now owns Ruidoso Downs, home of the All American Futurity (gr. I), Quarter Horse racing’s biggest race. Hubbard owns her with Johnny D. Cope and Henry Southway.
She also has excellent Quarter Horse connections. She is conditioned by Paul Jones, the all-time leading Quarter Horse trainer by earnings and 10 times the national champion. She was ridden in the Hobbs America Futurity by G.R. Carter Jr., the all-time leading Quarter Horse jockey by earnings and nine times the national champion.
Gerald D. Libersat bred A Dream To Remember in Oklahoma by crossing Hallowed Dreams with Corona Cartel, one of Quarter Horse racing’s leading sires. The breeding was an embryo transfer, which is allowed in Quarter Horse breeding. Hallowed Dreams is the dam of three 2010 fillies: A Dream To Remember, Dreaminofthegame by Game Patriot, and Ms Katyln Dreams by Carters Cartel.
Prior to producing her 2010 Quarter Horse foals, Hallowed Dreams foaled five Thoroughbreds. All have started and won, her leading earner being Grand Rade, who made $123,124 on the racetrack.
A 1997 daughter of Malagra—Pacific’s Dream, by Brother Machree, Hallowed Dreams won 25 of 30 starts, including 17 stakes, for earnings of $740,144. She made 27 of those starts in Louisiana and never raced beyond six furlongs. Lloyd Romero trained her and co-owned her during her racing career with Johnny Gaspard.
