Victor's Cry Wins US Gr1 Shoemaker Mile
Also in the US, Darley shuttler & Gr1 Dubai World Cup winner Street Cry (Machiavellian-Helen Street, by Troy) added a Gr1 triumph (& 11th individual Gr1-winner) when 5YO entire Victor's Cry (Street Cry-Short Time, by Clever Trick) scored by a head in the US$250,000 Gr1 Shoemaker Mile Stakes (8 furlongs on turf) at Hollywood Park in California. Victor's Cry (ridden by Corey Nakatani for trainer Eoin Harty) clocked a sizzling 1min 32.88sec in defeating favoured 8YO gelding Karelian (Bertrando-Leaning Tower, by Theatrical) & front-running 6YO gelding Mr Gruff (Mr Greeley-Ruff, by Clever Trick). Virginia-bred Victor's Cry (a US$150,000 yearling at the 2006 Fasig-Tipton Kentucky July Sale) took his record to 5 wins & 4 placings (including April's Gr3 San Simeon Handicap over 6.5 furlongs at Santa Anita) from 17 starts for US$350,633 earnings.
