Street Magician to stand in Maryland


Grade 3 winner Street Magician, a son of Street Cry, will enter stud in 2011 at Northview Stallion Station, the Chesapeake City, Md., farm announced Wednesday.

A R. Larry Johnson homebred, Street Magician won half of his 10 lifetime starts, and the highlight of his racing career came in the Grade 3 Hirsch Jacobs Stakes on Preakness day at Pimlico. Street Magician also won a pair of ungraded stakes, the 2009 Karl Boyes Memorial Northwestern Pennsylvania Stakes at Presque Isle, in which he set a 5 1/2-furlong track record of 1:02.24 on the synthetic strip, and the 2007 Aventura Stakes at Gulfstream. Trained by Michael Trombetta, the 6-year-old horse earned $254,440.

Street Magician is out of the Meadowlake mare Magical Meadow. He will enter stud with a $3,000 fee in 2011.

Northview Stallion Station will host a reception for Street Magician and another first-year sire, Bullsbay, Sept. 24-26 from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. Light fare will be served.
