Street Cry Colt Brings $2.1 Million

Son of Street Cry sells for $2.1 million at Fasig-Tipton juvenile auction.

A strapping son of Street Cry was the early standout Tuesday at the Fasig-Tipton Calder select sale of 2-year-olds in training, bringing $2.1 million from Sheikh Mohammed's bloodstock manager John Ferguson at Calder Race Course. Street Cry and another son, 2007 Kentucky Derby Presented by Yum! Brands (gr. I) winner Street Sense, both stand at Sheikh Mohammed's Darley operation in Kentucky.

Scanlon Training Center consigned the Street Cry colt, as agent. Produced from the 10-year-old winning Tabasco Cat mare Sage Cat, he is a half-brother to Ellie Cat (by Crafty Prospector), who captured this year's Chou Croute Handicap at the Fair Grounds.

Paul Pompa Jr. purchased the bay colt for $425,000 at the 2007 Keeneland September yearling sale. He worked an eighth of a mile in :10 2/5 prior to the Fasig-Tipton Florida auction.

"He was a good-looking yearling," Ferguson said. "He trained well at David Scanlon's this winter, and he came here and move beautifully on the racetrack."
