Trained at Cranbourne by Terry Mathrick and raced by a syndicate led by his brother Shawn, Streetfighter is now on track for the Group One AJC Metropolitan at Randwick after winning his third successive race in NSW.

The horse has been an inspiration for the Mathrick family, who have had to struggle with the near fatal loss of Terry's 23-year-old son Gary in a car accident in June.

Gary was found to be clinically dead at the crash scene but was revived and is now making a slow recovery under supervised rehabilition.

He was able to spend today watching the Newcastle Cup with his 48-year-old father at their Cranbourne home while his uncle Shawn did the honours with the horse at Newcastle.

Shawn Mathrick, a former rodeo rider and now a promoter of major rodeo events, bred Streetfightrer and has done all the travelling with the horse as brothger tery also is restricted after suffering his own serious leg injuries when kicked by a horse two years ago.

Shawn Mathrick spoke with Chris Scholtz about Streetfighter and his family after the Newcastle Cup.
