Streeting To Victory
Apr 12, 2015
It has taken a little while to figure out Streetshavenoname but we seem to have found the key to the honest four-year-old now - he is purely a sprinter.
"We have tried to stretch him out a bit in the past but it just hasn't worked," Robbie Griffiths said, "so we will keep him to the short trips now."
And it was over such a distance - 1100m at Geelong on Friday - that the gelding was back to his best with a gutsy performance winning a 58 ratings event in smart fashion.
Settling down second last from the widest gate, Streetshavenoname was spotting his rivals five lengths approaching the turn but he really let down well over the final stages, nailing the leaders close to home.
"He did a really good job," Robbie said, noting that four-year-old appreciated a bit of sting out of the ground as he has done in the past.
Bred by Newhaven Park and raced by Robbie Griffiths, Thomas Holbrook, Paul Holbrook, Neville Blake, Troy Wilson, Neil Leyden, Shaun Frost, Paul Johnson, Lucky Lammy and Triamps Racing, Streetshavenoname is a son of the Kentucky Derby winner Street Sense from the family of big race winners Drum, Grand Armee, Absolute Champion, Dealer Principal and Anamato.
