Darley's deceased sire Street Cry reached the milestone of 100 black-type winners March 5 when Heavens Above won the Aspiration Quality (Aus-III) at Royal Randwick in Australia.
Street Cry, whose leading offspring include 2010 Horse of the Year Zenyatta and champion, classic winner, and Central Kentucky sire Street Sense, was euthanized at age 16 in 2014. The son of Machiavellian out of 1985 Irish Oaks (Ire-I) winner Helen Street (Troy) was suffering from complications related to a neurological condition.
Street Cry, who has 802 winners from 10 crops racing ages 3 and up, is the sire of six champions and 60 graded or group winners. Street Cry's offspring have earned more than $104 million worldwide.
Zenyatta earned more than $7.3 million while winning 19 of 20 starts, with one second; and Street Sense won the 2007 Kentucky Derby Presented by Yum! Brands (gr. I) and 2006 Breeders' Cup Juvenile (gr. I). Street Cry also is the sire of Street Boss, a two-time grade I-winning sprinter, who is based at Darley's Jonabell Farm in Lexington alongside Street Sense.
Street Cry's final North American crops are yearlings and 2-year-olds of 2016.
Heavens Above, an Australian-bred 4-year-old out of Reggie by Germano, is owned by President Bloodstock, which is managed by her breeder, Reg Kemister. Trained by Tim Martin and sent off the favorite in the 1,600-meter (about one mile) race, she won by a half-length and finished the distance in 1:35.29.
