Cary Street Romps in Las Vegas Marathon-G2
Saturday, November 1, 2014

Like a fine wine, Bluewater graduate Cary Street just keeps getting better with age. The five-year-old son of Smarty Jones left no question as to who was the best of the field of eight in the $200,000 Las Vegas Marathon-G2 at Santa Anita on Breeders’ Cup Friday.

The gelding, who won his first graded stakes event two starts back in the $200000 Greenwood Cup-G3 at Parx, was unhurried early and well out of contention soon after leaving the gate. As is his running style, Cary Street angled to the inside early and saved ground on the rail, racing last for most of the mile and a half main track event. Rounding the turn, he made his move around the final turn before swinging out three wide and began to draw away under mild urging. By the time he crossed the wire, he was 9-1/4 lengths the best, with the rest of the field strung out behind him.

Out of the Sultry Song mare Shady Reflection, Cary Street was bred in Kentucky by Darley and was consigned by Bluewater Sales at the Keeneland September Sale, selling for $60,000 to Eisaman Equine.

Now a multiple stakes winner for owners Marc Detampel and Brendan P. Walsh, Cary Street’s earnings stand at $370,275.
