Myer target For Solicit

Wednesday, 30th September 2015

Talented mare Solicit (Street Cry-Princesa, by Danehill) will be given another season to win a Gr1 feature before retiring to stud, reports AAP. Owned by Contract Racing's David Moodie and Nick Psaltis, the former Victorian-trained mare was transferred to Gerald Ryan's Sydney stable in February in the hope that a change of environment might prompt a return to her best form. The move had some success with the daughter of Street Cry winning the Gr3 Darley Crown at Scone in May, but Ryan has loftier ambitions this time in and is aiming her at the Gr1 Myer Classic (1600m) at Flemington on 1 November (Derby day). "Solicit is back in the stable and will run in a barrier trial on Tuesday," Ryan said. "David and Nick had her mother and half-sister and they said they got better as they got older, so they have decided to race her for another season." He added: "The plan is to give her another trial on Friday week and go first-up into the Tristarc Stakes in Melbourne before the Myer Classic." Solicit, who has won 5 of 23 starts including the Gr2 Kewney Stakes, is from the stakes-winning Danehill mare Princesa (herself a daughter of Gr1 winner Kapchat), and is a half-sister to Gr2-winning sprinting mare Star Of Giselle.
