Allergic Wins Listed McKell Cup

Monday, 29th May 2017

At Royal Randwick in Sydney on Saturday, Darley's deceased shuttler & Gr1 Dubai World Cup winner Street Cry (Machiavellian-Helen Street, by Troy) added a black-type success when Godolphin's 5YO gelding Allergic (Street Cry-Cajou, by Encosta de Lago) stormed home from last for a fetching win in the $150,000 Listed McKell Cup (2400m) for 3YO+, defeating Broadside & Soviet Courage. In claiming his second stakes victory, Allergic improved his record to 8 wins (including the Gr3 Colin Stephen Quality Handicap) and 12 placings (including the Gr1 SAJC South Australian Derby, Gr3 ATC Kingston Town Stakes & Gr3 ATC Manion Cup) from 32 starts for $668,945 earnings. A homebred for Darley, Allergic hails from the family of VRC Oaks runner-up Miss Scarlatti, Gr2-winning Zabeel mare Crimson, as well as VRC Derby winner Omnicorp & Gr2 Sandown Cup winner Pharostan.
