A G3 winner at two and G1 placed at four, Globetrotter was tough and honest with an impressive turn of foot. His dam is by Seattle Slew and hails from the family of USA stakes winners Devotion Unbridled and Snow Cone.
His sire Street Cry heads a Darley roster of 25 stallions in Australia this year at a $137,500 fee. That’s a $25,000 increase on his 2009 services which isn’t surprising given his exploits in the last 12 months with Champion USA mare Zenyatta and his Australian G1 winners Shocking and Whobegotyou.
Globetrotter impressed visitors at Brackley Park’s open day last weekend when he paraded with Storm Cat sire Deadly Storm. His introductory fee has been set at $8,800 (inc gst) by owner Damian White.
