Streama Poised for Retirement Following Doomben Cup Success

Trainer Guy Walter believes Streama’s impressive victory in last weekend’s featured Group 1 Doomben Cup (2000m) is an ideal way for the popular mare to end her racing tenure and retire into a breeding career.

Confirmed to close her racing account at the conclusion of the 2014 Brisbane Winter Racing Carnival, Walter told AAP he has shared his thoughts with Streama’s connections, believing the daughter of Stratum hit peak condition in the Doomben Cup and is only likely to lose a length of form ahead of a possible final assault on the Group 1 Tattersall’s Tiara (1400m) on June 21st.

“I don’t want to pre-empt the owners but I think the Doomben Cup is an ideal way for her to go out” Walter said.

“I’d like yesterday (Saturday) to be her final run and I’ve expressed that to the owners.

“They will make a decision in the next few days.”

A standout performer over her four-year racing career out of Walter’s Warwick Farm stables, the trainer highlighted precisely the impact Streama has had on the organisation and Australian racing as a whole.

“They don’t come much better than her and it’s been a privilege to train her” Walter said.

“She started as an autumn two-year-old and here she is winning a Group One as a rising six-year-old.

“She has won over all distances and has never had an unsound day in her life.”

A standout performer over each of her racing preparations since debuting in early 2011, Streama has won an impressive total of four Group 1 races and a further six of her starts, placing in 13 over 34 appearances on track.

A final decision on whether or not Streama will continue working ahead of the 2014 Tattersall’s Tiara is expected to be made by the end of the week.
