She is by WGC sire Attache’s Born Believer, sire of Three-Gaited WGC CHHollywood Excellence among many other world title holders. Her dam, Dream A Dream (BHF), is by WC sire WC Sultan’s Spartan and is line bred to Three-Gaited WGC CHValley View Supreme. Dream A Dream (BHF) is a half sister to the well-known CHSpirited Wing and to Inspiration’s Star (second dam of multiple five-gaited WCC CHTigerlee). A Daydream Believer (BHF) was an outstanding performer and a thrilling powerhouse in the show ring, earning world’s champion titles in both the fine harness and park divisions.
Her second dam, Dream Waltz Supreme, is the only full sister to WC sire Supreme Spirit, and is a half-sister RWC sire Waltz King and to Dream Awhile (dam of WC CHStar Waltz and WC Texas Gunslinger). Her third dam, famous Five-Gaited WGC and WC CHDream Waltz (BHF), is a full sister to six-time Five-Gaited WGC and WC CHWing Commander. CHDream Waltz (BHF) and CHWing Commander are the only two full siblings to have won the Five-Gaited World’s Grand Championship. CHDream Waltz (BHF) is also a full sister to WC CHLover’s Lane (dam of Three-Gaited WGC CHLover’s Sensation), WC sire RWCC Private Contract, CHPrimrose Path (dam of WC sire Baron De Bastrop and RWC Arbor Rose), etc. Her fourth and fifth dams are Hall of Fame broodmares as well. There are 12 different Hall of Fame broodmares in the first five generations of her pedigree, with a count of nine being considered exceptional.
A 2008 inductee to the Broodmare Hall of Fame, A Daydream Believer (BHF) is a full sister to WC CHVegas Dreams, RWC Keep Dreaming, and RWC I Am The Dream (BHF) (dam of WCC CHHS Baby Steps, WCC HS I’m A Dreamer, WC HS I’m Hot Wired, RWC HS I’m Dreaming The Blues, etc.), and is a half-sister to Man What A Dream (BHF), dam of WC Riverdreams’ Remarcable, WC Exclamation Mark! and WC Riverdreams’ Spitfire.
This ultra game mare earned her Hall of Fame broodmare status by virtue of such offspring as Fine Harness WGC CHCastledream, Three-Gaited WGC HS Daydream’s Heads Up, WCC CHHS Dignitary, WCC HS Decorum, WC HS Daydream’s Believe In Me, WC HS Daydream’s Fashionista, WC HS Daydream’s Celebrity, RWC Dream Castle, RWC CHHS First Day, and RWC HS Daydream’s Perfect Gentleman. She also produced HS Daydream’s Heiress (dam of WC HS Brilliant Heiress), HS A Faithful Lady (dam of WC Tua), A Pleasant Surprize (dam of WC Just Surprize Me), HS Daydream’s Dream Girl (dam of RWCs HS Color My World and HS Dream Girl’s Darling Doris), and RWC sires HS Castle Vision and HS Daydream’s Dignity. Her last foal was born in 2015 and A Daydream Believer passed soon after.
Her breeding is a classic example of the “golden cross” of CHWing Commander x CHValley View Supreme. The cross, which first appears in her third generation, is known for producing the beauty and elegance of CHValley View Supreme combined with the power and motion of CHWing Commander. When beauty and gameness go hand in hand, remarkable things can happen as evidenced by here show and produce records.
