Streets Away Repays Faith

Leading Gold Coast trainer Alan Bailey was very impressed with Darren Weir’s training methods of Wealth Princess, getting the mare back to win a Group 3 in Brisbane after nearly two years off. So much so, he recommended to the owners of Streets Away that they send the horse to Victoria for Weir to train. Plagued by feet issues, Bailey thought he would do well working on the beach at Warrnambool and would be advantaged by the wet Melbourne tracks. Having just his second start for the stable, Streets Away, brilliantly ridden by Glen Boss, won the $100,000 Belinda Jane Verco McLeod Mile at Moonee Valley on Saturday. Weiry was pleased he had repaid the faith that Bailey had shown in him. The win was the start of a successful weekend for the stable with Eightways romping home with a Maiden Hurdle at Coleraine the following day then Martindale Hall, aided by a smart ride by Damian Lane, won the final race at Seymour.
