Stradbroke Looming As Streama’s Finale

Trainer Guy Walter has revealed talented mare Streama may have contested her last race in Sydney, and has outlined the Brisbane Winter Carnival as a possible final stop to the four time Group 1 champion before retiring into a breeding career.

Yet to find consistent and competitive form over four starts in her current preparation, Walter told AAP the Group 1 Stradbroke Handicap (1400m) is shaping as the final target for the Stratum mare before taking her position in the breeding stable in spring.

“She possibly won’t run again in Sydney. There would have to be a vast improvement in the track” Walter said.

“I need to discuss it with her owners, but the Stradbroke may be her last race.

“At this stage she certainly won’t run on Saturday in either the Queen Elizabeth or Queen Of The Turf.”

Returning to the track with a strong run for fifth in the Group 2 Breeders’ Classic (1200m) on February 15th, Streama was unable to match the late pace of her competitors in either of the Group 1 Canterbury Stakes (1300m) and Group 1 George Ryder Stakes (1500m), finishing sixth in each.

Gaining noticeable attention from punters in betting markets leading up to the major Group 1 Doncaster Mile (1600m) last weekend, the talented five-year-old was unable to compete on the soft and drenched Randwick surface; finishing well off the pace in a disappointing seventeenth.

A particularly consistent performer over the 2013 racing calendar, Streama finished outside the places just twice in 10 competitive starts; finishing second in both the Group 1 Tattersall’s Tiara (1400m) and Group 1 Epsom Handicap (1600m) and winning the Group 1 George Main Stakes (1600m) most notably.

Securing a total of eight wins and 123 places from 31 career race starts, Streama is sure to pose a serious threat to the 2014 Stradbroke Handicap on what is sure to be a firm Eagle Farm Racecourse.
