Classy mare Streama has added another Group 1 win to her tally, winning the George Main Stakes 2013 at Royal Randwick today. Today’s win was the five-year-old Stratum mare’s seventh career victory and third Group 1.
Stream held of fellow Oaks winning mare Royal Descent to claim the feature event of the day ahead of Veyron in third and Hawkspur fourth.
Jockey Blake Shinn gave Streama a perfect ride, sitting behind leader Veyron before timing his run to the line perfectly.
“She is a fabulous mare,” trainer Guy Walter said after the win.
“She had a very hard run at Warwick Farm but I think that she was a very fit mare that day.
“Blake rode her brilliantly and it is a great thrill to win this race.”
Streama will only have one more start during the spring, with Guy Walter indicating she will run in the Group 1 Epsom Handicap before spelling and returning for the Doncaster Mile in the Autumn.
