Dream quartet in WA Derby

Owner-breeder Bob Peters had been busy selling stock in Sydney and Perth before winning his fourth G2 WA Derby in a row at Ascot on Saturday.

Peters and his wife Sandra won the classic with Arcadia Dream (Domesday) and she will be given the chance to emulate their champion filly Delicacy in the South Australian Oaks (2000m) and South Australian Derby (2500m) next month.

Arcadia Dream follows Delicacy (Al Maher), Respondent (Haradasun) and Mystic Prince (Reset) who all carried his cerise and white colours to victory in the WA Derby.

A day beforehand, Peters culled the overflow from his bloodstock portfolio with 8 lots making $90,000 at the Perth Magic Millions Autumn Sale.  Mystic Prince topped the reduction at $26,000 and he will go jumping after being purchased by Victoria trainer Eric Musgrove.

Peters was also rewarded at the Inglis Easter yearling sale earlier this month with $200,000 apiece for fillies by Pierro and Street Cry.  He retained a Snitzel – Antique filly after bidding failed to reach a reserve of $450,000.
