The fourth-place cheque earned by Il Sogno Dream was enough to push the six-year-old stallion over $1 million in career earnings. The Victor Puddy trainee came into Saturday’s Preferred just $1,328 shy of the milestone.
A son of Cantab Hall, Il Sogno Dream reached the $1 million mark with 20 career victories for owners Bill & Dan Manes and Leonard & Randy Christopher. His career highlights include finishing fourth in the 2014 Hambletonian, winning the 2015 Allerage Trot and finishing second in the 2016 Maxie Lee.
Reaching milestones and competing on the racetrack is not the only thing keeping Il Sogno Dream busy this season, as he has also been standing stud at Mac Lilley Farms in Dutton, Ont.
The Puddy trainee is eligible to this year’s Maple Leaf Trot.
