Ocala Stud stallion Jess’s Dream sired his first winner when Restofthestory drew off to an impressive 5 ¾-length victory in a Gulfstream Park MdSpWt on Friday, Aug. 28.

Trained by Eddie Plesa Jr. for owners Karl and Cathi Glassman, Restofthestory broke sharply in the 5 ½-furlong event and quickly assumed command, opening three lengths on her rivals heading into the far turn. She widened her advantage through the lane to score as much the best. It was the second career start for the dark bay filly who finished second in her Aug. 8 debut at Gulfstream.

Bred in Florida by Ocala Stud and a graduate of this year’s OBS Spring sale, Restofthestory is produced from the winning Harlan’s Holiday mare Holiday Flare, a half-sister to multiple stakes winner Dream of Angels and stakes winner and Grade 1-placed Candrea.

Jess’s Dream is a regally-bred son of Horses of the Year Curlin and Rachel Alexandra. A Stonestreet homebred, Jess’s Dream was a TDN Rising Star after an impressive winning debut at Saratoga as a 3-year-old for Stonestreet Stables and trainer Kiaran McLaughlin. Jess’s Dream stood the 2020 season for $5,000 S&N.
