Yesterday the long trip up to York paid off in fine style courtesy of our 2yo STREETS OF GOLD winning the £100,000 Sky Bet Nursery Hcp. He is now 3 from 3 following his earlier successes at Chepstow on debut followed a victory in a hot Novice at Newmarket. Both him and Baaeed were the only 2 horses to leave the Knavesmire unbeaten yesterday...not bad company to be in!
'Streets' was a little short of room with 2 furlongs to go but Charlie Bishop managed to weave his way through to score cosily by 1 1/4 length and hopefully all roads now lead to the Curragh on 11th September for the Tattersalls Ireland Super Auction Stakes.
We are thrilled for his owners Gary Stevens and Jonny Allison - Gary has been a loyal supporter of Woodway going back to when Eve's father Fulke held the license and Gary's familiar Orange silks have been carried to victory over the years most notable by old favourites Beaver Patrol & Goring. Jonny Allison joined our yard a couple of years back and we are over the moon that Eve has found them a good one!!
Streets Of Gold is by Havana Gold who also sired our star 2yo from 2021 Chipotle and he is certainly becoming a lucky sire for us. We are now just shy of the £500,000 prize money mark which is great achievement.
