Street Magician, a talented sprinter and graded stakes winner, will enter stud in 2011 at Dr. Tom Bowman and Richard Golden’s Northview Stallion Station near Chesapeake City, Md. His fee is $3,000.
Campaigned by his breeder, R. Larry Johnson, 6-year-old Street Magician won half of his 10 career starts, including three stakes. At 3, he captured the Hirsch Jacobs Stakes (gr. III) at six furlongs, as well as Gulfstream Park’s Aventura Stakes at seven furlongs in his stakes debut. His first win, by eight lengths at six furlongs at Gulfstream Park, earned him a 100 Beyer Speed Figure.
In his first start on a synthetic track, Street Magician set the pace in the Karl Boyes Memorial Northwestern PA Stakes at Presque Isle Downs, setting a track record of 1:02.24 while recording a 102 Beyer.
Street Magician, by Street Cry, was retired with career earnings of $254,440.
“Street Magician was an exceptionally fast race horse who competed against the best of his generation,” Golden said. “He is a very correct stallion who descends from a highly successful female family. Adding Street Magician to our roster reflects the confidence we have in the fundamental soundness of the Mid-Atlantic breeding market.”
The first son of Street Cry to stand in the mid-Atlantic region, Street Magician is out of the Meadowlake mare Magical Meadow. His second dam, stakes winner Special Kell, is a half sister to stakes winner and multiple stakes producer Turn to T. J.
Street Magician will be available for inspection at Northview, along with fellow incoming sire Bullsbay, Sept. 24-26 from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. EDT.
