First mare in foal for Ocala Stud’s Jess’s Dream
Thursday, March 16, 2017
Ocala Stud announced that its first-year stallion Jess’s Dream had the first mare he covered in his debut breeding season confirmed as being in foal.

The first mare covered by the regally-bred Jess’s Dream was the Harlan’s Holiday mare Holiday Flare, a half-sister to stakes winners Candrea and Dream of Angles. Owned by Ocala Stud, Holiday Flare was pronounced in foal with a heartbeat at 28 days on Monday.

Jess’s Dream is by champion Curlin out of champion Rachel Alexandra, making him the only horse at stud whose sire and dam were both Horses of the Year. A Stonestreet homebred named after the late Jess Jackson, the 5-year-old bay was distinguished as a TDN Rising Star after impressively winning his debut at Saratoga.

Jess’s Dream is standing his first season at J. Michael O’Farrell Jr.’s Ocala Stud in Florida for a fee of $5,000 stands and nurses. For more information about Jess’s Dream, or to set up an inspection, please contact David or Joe O’Farrell at 352-237-2171, or visit
