Street Crew Represents Hardacre Farm In Serena's Song

Posted Friday, Jul 13, 2012

 

She’s completed her preparations and has the credentials. Now the time has come to see if Street Crew has the goods to be a stakes winner.

            “She training like a monster right now,” said trainer Amy Tarrant, who’s Hardacre Farm owns the Kentucky-bred daughter of Street Cry out of the Dr. Blum mare Critical Crew. “She is capable of running well and capable of winning.”

            Street Crew will face six other sophomore fillies in Sunday’s $75,000 Serena’s Song Stakes, which is named for the 1995 Three-Year-Old Filly champion and is a prep race for the Grade 3 Monmouth Oaks to be run here on August 11. The Serena’s Song will be contested at one mile and seventy yards over the main strip.

The chestnut filly was unraced as a juvenile because Tarrant didn’t want to take any unnecessary chances after spending $350,000 for her at the Ocala Breeders Sale of 2-year-olds in March 2011.

            “I didn’t run her for a year because we discovered she had a tiny hitch in her get along. It was a small tendon issue,” she said. “We paid a lot of money for her so we decided to give her a lot of time off.”

            From four starts this year, with the most recent two being at Monmouth, Street Crew has one win and a third and that in-the-money finish was last out in a $42,000 non-winners of one-other-than allowance test at one mile on the dirt.

            “Last time, she needed more track,” said Tarrant. “In the race before, she did not enjoy the turf at all. Chris (DeCarlo) rode her that day and said she didn’t take to it, even though she has some turf breeding in her pedigree.”

            DeCarlo will be back in the irons on Sunday and they will break from post five in the seven-horse field. Street Crew gets six pounds from the top-weighted Salad Girl, the lone stakes winner in the field as well as the only New Jersey-bred.

            “It’s a great post. Chris can see what everyone else is doing and stalk,” Tarrant said. “I like her a lot. She looks like a colt. She’s big and strong.”

            Minesave, Ainsley, Morrow Cove, Moment in Dixie and Ageless complete the field for the Serena’s Song.

            Minesave, a winner of two of her three starts against older horses of her sex, will be saddled by Brett Calhoun.

            “I wanted to get back against three-year-old fillies instead of running her in allowance company against older horses,” said Calhoun. “I think she’s got the potential to be a stakes filly, but obviously she has to step up in this race.”
