Pride Of Dubai
The fastest 2yo by Champion sire STREET CRY
The only horse to complete the Gr.1 Blue Diamond Stakes/Gr.1 Sires’ Produce Stakes double
Closely related to Champion sire INVINCIBLE SPIRIT and leading 2yo sire KODIAC
Street Cry already has 8 individual sons to have sired Gr.1 winners
“It's hardly surprising he was in terrific demand with the loss of Street Cry and he could well emulate his sire's popularity at stud”
- John Holloway
“Pedigree, performance, physique. He’s got them all!”
- Damon Gabbedy, Belmont Bloodstock
“A big, masculine, physical horse with a beautiful head on him. Stallions that look like him don’t come along too often”
- Michael Wallace, China Horse Club

"I was most impressed with Pride Of Dubai’s progeny at the sales.The filly out of Eyre we bought at Easter has shown a fair bit of precocity, so I think we’ll see her in the early 2yo races. The Magical Mist filly is a really nice type, very athletic, she’s done everything right at this stage of her preparation. We’d love to target his progeny at the sales next year based on what we’ve seen."
- Adrian Bott
"Pride Of Dubai won 2 Gr.1’s in his first four starts, that’s rare. I’ve been lucky enough to pick up six, I’ve had all of them in two or three times and they’ve all shown me something. All in all, they’ve got his attitude, they’ve got strength, they’ve got size and really good bone. I think their temperaments are what set them apart to most at this age, they’re picking things up quickly. They’re by too good a horse for them not to be good."
