Street Cry’s well-performed son Telperion, a half-brother to Group One winner Kementari, will be represented by his first crop of yearlings at Karaka next month.
He is out of the Redoute’s Choice mare Yavanna, herself a daughter of the Group Three winner Wild Queen, who is a half-sister to the Gr.2 Ascot Vale Stakes (1200m) winner So Gorgeous and the family of the great matriarch Denise’s Joy.
Telperion was third on debut as a two-year-old for trainer John O’Shea. He then won the Listed Lonhro Plate (1100m) at the expense of the subsequent Group One winner Prized Icon and was fourth in the Gr.2 Skyline Stakes (1200m) before he filled a similar placing in the Gr.1 Golden Slipper Stakes (1200m).
The handsome colt was then runner-up in the hands of James McDonald to the dual Group One winner Yankee Rose in the Sires’ Produce Stakes (1400m) at Randwick.
