Streama has won the Group 2 Wimmer Soft Drinks A.D. Hollindale Stakes for 2014, run at the Gold Coast Racecourse today.
The five-year-old Stratum mare produced a strong run in the 1800m race to show a return to form that has seen her claim three Group 1s in her career.
After a fair start to the race Streama was positioned behind the leaders in a good position on the fence by jockey Blake Shinn.
Mr O’Ceirin looked the horse to beat, taking up a 2 lengths lead in the straight. Shinn had to take Streama out wide around the final turn but was able to run down Mr O’Ceirin in the final stages and win by 1/2 a length. Precedence charged home late to finished third in one of the best runs of the race.
Streama could next head to the Doomben Cup after being included in the nominations.
