Streama has led all the way to win the 2012 Tristarc Stakes at Caulfield Racecourse today.
The Stratum mare won the race by 1.25 lengths ahead of Pear Tart, who finished second, and Red Tracer, who passed the post in third.
Streama has now won seven of her 16 race starts and has earned more than $1.27 million in prize money.
Trainer Guy Walter had nothing but positive things to say about the four-year-old mare after her 2012 Tristarc Stakes win.
“She’s a terrific mare,” Walter said.
“Great to see her show the Melbourne people what she can do.”
Streama finished sixth in her last start in the Group 2 Premiere Stakes at Royal Randwick on October 6.
“(She was) a little bit outpaced last start over 1200 (metres),” Walters said.
Walter confirmed the mare will now to the Group 1 Myer Classic at Flemington on November 3, 2012.
“She’s a great little mare and hopefully she can go on to the Myer,” he said.
“We didn’t go out with the intention of leading.
“She can run on wet or dry and she can come from behind or lead.”
Hugh Bowman was aboard Streama for today’s 2012 Tristarc Stakes win.
“There was no plan. I could have ended up anywhere,” Bowman said.
“It was the first time around Melbourne way and in my experience it can be difficult.
“The best part of the race was the final furlong.
“She’ll be better over a mile and better at Flemington I think.
“Hopefully she can turn up in a fortnight (in the Myer Classic) time and do the same.”
