Streama Eyes Myer Classic 2012

Guy Walter’s Australian Oaks winning filly Streama is being prepared for another big season with the smart daughter of Stratum eyeing the Myer Classic 2012 during the Melbourne Spring Racing Carnival as her main spring aim.


Australian Oaks winner Streama is heading towards the 2012 Myer Classic this November

Warwick Farm-based Walter is likely to give the million dollar earner just one run in her home state during the Sydney Spring Racing Carnival before heading straight to Victoria to prepare for the $500,000 Group 1 Myer Classic (1600m).

The 2012 Myer Classic is one of an incredible four Group 1 races on the Flemington race card on Victoria Derby Day, Saturday November 3, which kicks off the famous four meeting Melbourne Cup Carnival.

Streama has already amassed over one million in career prize money thanks to her six turf triumphs which included the Fillies Triple Crown last spring in Sydney.

After taking out the Group 2 Furious Stakes (1400m) and the Group 2 Tea Rose Stakes (1500m) Streama posted her first elite level success and took out the crown with a barnstorming six and a half length victory in the Group 1 Flight Stakes (1600m) at Randwick in October.

She returned in the summer and had another stellar campaign.

While she could only manage to finish fifth to Ofcourseican in the Group 1 Coolmore Classic (1500m) third-up, she went on to cross only half a length away second to the mighty Mosheen in the Group 1 Vinery Stud Stakes (2000m) next start.

At her most recent run on April 21 Streama became a dual Group 1 winner taking out the Australian Oaks, which was also her first look at the 2400-metres.

While proving her staying potential Walter is looking at keeping Streama to the mile this time in, the rising four-year-old having recently entered pre-training in Goulburn.

“She is up to three-quarter pace work,” Walter said.

“She won’t run before September and she may only have one race in Sydney before she goes to Melbourne.

“The Myer Classic is her aim and she won’t run beyond 1600 metres.”

The decision to keep her at a mile this time in rules Streama out of a shot at the $3 million Group 1 Cox Plate (2040m) at Moonee Valley on October 27 for which another ace filly, the unbeaten Atlantic Jewel, heads the early markets at a quote of $4.
