WANT A WINNER? TIME TO CRY WOLF
After contesting the Gr. 3 TL Baillieu Handicap Wolf Cry had a well-earned extended break.
You might have heard of some of these horses … Winx, Zenyatta, Heavens Above, Whobegotyou. Well, all of them – just like Wolf Cry – are by the super sire, Street Cry.
What about Street Boss and Per Incanto? Not as well known to be sure but are among the handful of stallion sons of Street Cry standing in Australia. Street Boss is the sire of Newmarket Handicap winner, The Quarterback, while Per Incanto is the sire of New Zealand Group One winner, Dal Cielo.
Sure, Wolf Cry hasn’t had the opportunity to strut his stuff as yet – given that he retired from the track last season and has only covered the one quality book of mares. However, all the signs of a successful career at stud are there.
A $320,000 yearling, Wolf Cry was a speedy youngster whose only four starts at two yielded three stakes placings: the Breeders’ Plate, Lonhro Plate and, in the important Golden Slipper leadup, the Group Two Skyline Stakes where he finished third behind subsequent Group One Golden Rose Stakes winner, Exosphere.
Wolf Cry is one of two stakes horses from the multiple stakes placed Redoute’s Choice 2YO, Starfish, in turn a daughter of the Group One winning sprinter, Stella Cadente. Starfish is also a half sister to stakes winning 2YO, Brillaint Bisc, but even more notably, this is the famous Eau D’Etoile family: an incredible source of precocious talent such as Golden Slipper winner, Bint Marscay, Sheraton, Mannington, Bollinger, Benicio and co., but notably also renowned for Group One winners and Group producing sires, Filante and Kenny’s Best Pal. Best part of all? Wolf Cry stands for just $4,400 inc. GST.
