Victor’s Cry’s first foal arrives in Ontario


Grade 1 winner Victor’s Cry was represented by his first foal on Feb. 8, a bay colt born at Park Stud in Orangeville, Ont.

Bred by Cavendish Investing, the colt is out of the stakes-winning American Chance mare Itstartswithadream, who is the dam of six winners from seven foals to start, including stakes-placed winners Dash It Dreamer, Archer’s Dreamer, and Archers Dream.

“Our foal is a very nice individual,” said Park Stud owner Michael Byrne. “He’s a strong, correct colt with good bone. We’ll be very happy if the rest of the Victor’s Crys look like this one.”

Victor’s Cry, a Virginia-bred 8-year-old son of Street Cry, won six of 24 starts in four seasons of racing, earning $762,021. He won the Grade 1 Shoemaker Mile and the Grade 2 Citation Handicap as a 5-year-old in 2010 for owner Equilite Stable and trainer Eoin Harty, and also placed in four graded stakes during his career.

Victor’s Cry is out of the multiple stakes-placed Clever Trick mare Short Time and is a half-brother to Grade 3-placed winner Clever Strike. He stands at Park Stud as property of Spendthrift Farm Canada for a 2013 fee of $5,000 when the foal stands and nurses.
