Valuable Filly Ready To Roar

Friday, 8th September 2017

Although her pedigree suggests she may need time and a longer trip, it will still be intriguing viewing when high-priced filly Silent Roar (Street Cry-Zarita, by Pentire) debuts in the opening event on the Geelong synthetic surface over 1300m today. By Winx's Champion Australian Sire and Gr1 Dubai World Cup winner Street Cry, Spendthrift Australia-owned 3YO filly Silent Roar is from Gr1 South Australian Derby and Oaks winner Zarita. An exceptional mare, Zarita also netted five wins at Gr2 level for over $1.6 million in prizemoney. Her distance trajectory was also astounding with her 9 career wins ranging from 1000m to the 2500m of the Derby. A $550,000 2016 Inglis Easter Yearling purchase from the draft of Widden Stud, Silent Roar will be sure to have been meticulously prepared for her first trip to the races by the canny Hawkes Racing Team.
