Filly’s Win Brings Back Memories

 Memories came flooding back for Darren Weir and the connections of She’s Archie when her two-year-old daughter May’s Dream took out the $130,000 Elvstroem Classic on the first day of the Swan Hill carnival. Having a similar racing pattern to She’s Archie, May’s Dream stormed home to overhaul the leaders in the final 200m, going on to win convincingly. She’s Archie gave “Weiry’’ his first Group 1 success when taking out the 2003 SA Oaks at Morphettville. However arguably her crowning glory came 18 months later when she beat all but the champion mare Maykbe Diva in the Melbourne Cup. The win of May’s Dream, who was bred by Worrell & Lorraine Dunn of Horsham, proved a good advertisement for the new VOBIS Gold scheme – with all the bonuses attached to the race, she added $99,000 to her prizemoney. From the first Australian crop of sire sensation New Approach, she has always shown the stable plenty of ability and will now be aimed at a couple of the rich 3YO Fillies races during the Spring.
