Cosmic Storm Wins Listed Belmont Oaks
At Belmont in West Australia, Darley's 2006 Champion 2YO Colt & 2007 Gr1 Kentucky Derby-winning shuttler Street Sense (Street Cry-Bedazzle, by Dixieland Band) added a black-type success when 3YO filly Cosmic Storm (Street Sense-Stormy Nova, by Metal Storm) scored by 0.75-length for trainer Grant Williams in the $100,000 Listed Belmont Oaks (2000m) for 3YO fillies, over fellow 3YO fillies Fo' Shizzle (Universal Ruler-Precocious Lady, by Kenvain) & Indi Pacific (Blackfriars-Prime Again, by Marooned). This was the first stakes victory for Cosmic Storm who took her record to 3 wins and 2 placings from 6 starts for $145,200 earnings. A homebred for prominent WA owner and breeder Bob Peters, Cosmic Storm is out of the talented Metal Storm mare Stormy Nova, winner of the Gr3 WATC Champion Fillies Stakes and Gr3 Lee Steere Classic.
