Raiment Wins Gr3 Birthday Card Stakes
At Rosehill Gardens in Sydney on a heavy track, Darley's deceased shuttler & Gr1 Dubai World Cup winner Street Cry (Machiavellian-Helen Street, by Troy) added a Group success when 3YO filly Raiment (Street Cry-Clothing, by Commands) scored by 3.3 lengths for trainer John O'Shea in the $150,000 Gr3 Birthday Card Stakes (1200m) for 3YO+ fillies & mares, over fellow 3YO filly Samantha (Snitzel-Icedginger, by Tale of the Cat) & 5YO mare Nancy (Big Brown-Shalimar Sky, by Hurricane Sky). This was the first stakes victory for Raiment who boosted her record to 4 wins and 4 placings (including the Listed Scone RC Woodlands Stakes) from 9 starts for $283,885 earnings. A homebred for Darley and Godolphin, Raiment hails from the successful Woodlands Stud family of 2000 Gr1 Doncaster Handicap winner Over.
