Stryker Wins Lyndhurst Stud Fred Best Classic

Monday, 24th May 2010

Multiple Gr1-winning Australian-bred Coolmore stallion Fastnet Rock (Danehill-Piccadilly Circus, by Royal Academy) added a group success when his colt Stryker (Fastnet Rock-Laetitia, by Woodman) scored a 0.75-length victory in the $125,000 Gr3 Lyndhurst Stud Fred Best Classic (1350m) for 3YOs at Doomben. Stryker (ridden by Jim Cassidy for trainer Chris Waller) defeated the fillies Happy Hippy (Shamardal-Springburn, by Soviet Lad) & favourite Graceful Anna (Canny Lad-Lamellar, by Grand Lodge). Stryker (a $600,000 yearling consigned by Segenhoe Stud at the 2008 Inglis Easter Sale in Sydney) now has 2 wins (also including 2009's Listed Heritage Stakes over 1200m at Rosehill) & 6 placings (including March's Gr2 Challenge Stakes over 1000m at Randwick, plus 2009's Gr1 Golden Rose over 1400m at Rosehill & Gr2 Darley Stakes over 1200m at Rosehill) from 13 starts for $350,325 earnings.
