Stud record

In America, Street Cry stands at Darley's Jonabell Farm in Lexington, Kentucky for $150,000[2]. After a two-year break, Street Cry returned in 2009 for a fifth season at Darley Stud, Kelvinside, in the Hunter Valley where he stands at a fee of AUD$110,000.[3] During those five seasons in Australia, he covered 425 mares to produce 319 foals.

Darley's Chief Operating Officer, Oliver Tait, says that Street Cry produces "easy horses to train" that are "tough, willing, and genuine." Physically, his offspring have succeeded on "all distances and all surfaces" and "show incredible acceleration" so that they are "incredibly effective in the last quarter-mile of the race."[4]
