Noble Dreamer led every step of the way in a five-furlong maiden special weight at Gulfstream Park on June 18 to graduate by a widening 7 ¼ lengths, becoming the first winner for Ocala Stud’s Noble Bird.

Ridden by Edgard Zayas, Noble Dreamer was never threatened in her second lifetime start, winning as she pleased in :58.98 for owner Shooting Star Thoroughbreds LLC, and trainer Joseph Saffie Jr. Noble Dreamer is produced from the winning Bluegrass Cat mare Dreaminofauntdiane, a half-sister to Home I’m Good, from the family of multiple grade 1 winner Classy Cathy.

Millionaire and Stephen Foster (G1) winner Noble Bird is a track record-setting son of Birdstone.  Trained by Mark Casse for John Oxley, Noble Bird scored the biggest victory of his career in the $500,000 Stephen Foster H. (G1) at Churchill Downs in 2015, defeating three Grade 1 winners in 1:47.94 for 1 1/8 miles. All told, he won or placed in six Graded stakes and earned more than $1.3 million.
