Aust-Bred Street Cry Son Wins South Africa Gr2
In South Africa, Darley shuttler & Gr1 Dubai World Cup winner Street Cry (Machiavellian-Helen Street, by Troy) added a group success when Australian-bred 5YO gelding Eight Street (Street Cry-Figure Of Eight, by Octagonal) scored a 2.25-lengths victory in the R300,000 (A$45,000) Gr2 Victory Moon Stakes (1800m) at Turffontein. Eight Street (ridden by Anton Marcus for trainer Charles Laird) defeated 4YO entire Rudi Rocks (Silvano-Rosey Rapids, by Virginia Rapids) & fellow 5YO gelding Killaridge (Kitalpha-Ridgewood Fern, by Coolstar). Eight Street (a $40,000 yearling consigned by Southern Cross Breeders at the 2006 Magic Millions Gold Coast Sale) now has 6 wins (also including June’s Gr3 Cup Trial over 1800m at Clairwood) & 6 placings from 18 starts.
