Gooree Celebrate with Hallowed Crown

Tara Madgwick - Saturday April 12
Kentucky Derby winner Street Sense (USA) has been a big disappointment as a sire here in Australia for Darley, but he did give Gooree Stud the honour of breeding and owning the very first winner at the inaugural The Championships meeting at Randwick in Sydney on Saturday.

Prepared by Bart and James Cummings, two year-old colt Hallowed Crown won his debut in good style at Randwick last month and was immediately set for the this race, the Group III ATC Kindergarten Stakes, with happy results.

Street SenseHe travelled strongly in the heavy conditions for Christian Reith and surged clear to win the 1100 metre dash by more than a length.

"When he won here first up we decided to set him for this race, but have doubted ourselves ever since, so it's good to see him win," said James Cummings.

Hallowed Crown is a half-brother to Needs Further, who won the Group III ATC Carbine Club Stakes for Gooree Stud on this same day a few years ago.

He is one of six winners from Group III winning Danehill (USA) mare Crowned Glory, who comes from the family of champion sire Zabeel.

Crowned Glory has a yearling colt by Street Sense's sire Street Cry (IRE) and was covered last spring by More Than Ready (USA).

Hallowed Crown is the second Australian stakes-winner for Street Sense, who has done much better in the Northern Hemisphere, where he has left 18 stakes-winners.

The last Australian progeny by Street Sense are weanlings born last year.
