Three Bridges freshman Stryker landed his second winner with Lightning Striker at Port Macquarie on Friday.
The Jenny Graham trained gelding started a short-priced favourite on his home track after a good third on debut at Scone last month.
Lightning Striker (2g Stryker – My Amelia by Redoute’s Choice) was bred by Richard Pegum and is raced by Alan Miller after making $29,000 at the 2014 Gold Coast Magic Millions. His dam is a daughter of Group 1 winning filly Carry on Cutie.
Stryker (Fastnet Rock) sired his first winner when Sonesta scored at Ascot on February 4. He’s also the sire of Melbourne stakes-placed filly Miss Loren.\
The Group 3 winning son of Fastnet Rock was popular on the Gold Coast last month. His second crop yearlings included a $165,000 colt bought by Tony McEvoy and a $100,000 filly purchased by Aston Bloodstock.
Stryker has 10 yearlings catalogued for the Inglis Melbourne Premier Sale and another 19 for the Adelaide Magic Millions in March.
