Carlton House Retired To Stud

Tuesday, 12th August 2014

Carlton House (Street Cry-Talented, by Bustino), Her Majesty The Queen's talented son of Street Cry, has been retired and will stand at Darley's New South Wales stud for the forthcoming breeding season. Trainer Gai Waterhouse was preparing the 6YO US-bred entire for this year's WS Cox Plate following an impressive autumn carnival that yielded a pair of Gr1 placings in the Ranvet Stakes behind Silent Achiever and the Queen Elizabeth Stakes behind It's A Dundeel.  Formerly trained by Sir Michael Stoute in the UK, Carlton House won the traditional Derby trial at York, the Gr2 Dante Stakes, in impressive fashion, before finishing third behind Pour Moi three weeks later at Epsom. He then returned in his 4YO year to land the Gr3 Brigadier Gerard Stakes before finishing second to champion Australian galloper So You Think in the Gr1 Prince of Wales's Stakes at Royal Ascot. He retires with 3 wins and 6 placings from 15 starts for $1,286,415 in earnings. The Queen's bloodstock and racing advisor, John Warren said: "Carlton House is such a magnificent and correct individual. He is by one of the most important stallions in the world. Carlton House proved he was high class from the moment he won his two-year-old maiden at Newbury by nine lengths and he was rated up there with the very best." Alastair Pulford, Darley's Head of Sales in Australia said: "We are delighted to stand a son of our world-renowned stallion Street Cry on our Kelvinside roster. His pedigree is top class and he is a complete outcross for Danehill, Danzig and other Northern Dancer line stallions. We look forward to showing him to breeders in the coming months." Carlton House will stand at Kelvinside at a fee of $16,500 inc. GST.
