At Rosehill Gardens in Sydney, Darley's deceased shuttler & Gr1 Dubai World Cup winner Street Cry (Machiavellian-Helen Street, by Troy) added a stakes race success when 4YO Australian-bred gelding Harper's Choice (Street Cry-Oxigenada, by Ibero) led throughout for a narrow front-running win in the $125,000 Listed Winter Cup (2400m) for 3YO+, defeating Destiny's Kiss & Araaja. This was an overdue stakes win for the talented Harper's Choice, who had finished runner-up in last year's Group 1 Australian Derby. A homebred for Bennelong Bloodstock, Harper's Choice, who is out of gr1-einning Argentinian mare Oxigenada, improved his record to 3 wins and 8 placings (including the Australian Derby) from 21 starts for $623,400 in earnings.
