Flashy gelding Street Comic is a grandson of one of Australia’s best known star sprinters but looks like making his name as a stayer.

Street Comic ($4.60) broke his maiden status when he won the Sky Racing Plate (2200m) at Caloundra on Wednesday.

Raced by Dynamic Syndications, Street Comic is by Street Cry out of Ah Ha, a daughter of 2001 Golden Slipper winner Ha Ha.

Ha Ha won eight races including the 2001 Golden Slipper and Flight Stakes when trained by Gai Waterhouse for John Singleton.

Street Comic was originally trained in Sydney by Gerald Ryan but when he wasn’t up to winning there the gelding was sent to Robert Heathcote at Eagle Farm.

“I’m not getting carried away by winning a maiden at Caloundra with a four-year-old. I haven’t looked at the Melbourne Cup nominations just yet,” Heathcote said.

“But he is a nice horse and he can win a few races at middle distances now.”

The well-backed The Mechanic ($3) overcame a pre-race scare before winning a maiden (1000m).

The Mechanic reared in the barriers and had to pass a vet’s examination before going on to beat Cornforth ($2.25) by a short half head.

“I thought they might have taken him out but I’m glad they didn’t. He is a much better horse than that narrow win,” trainer David Vandyke said.

The Mechanic’s win was the second on the program for Vandyke after Exceed Battle while Steven O’Dea racked up a treble with Setoga, Francisca and Real Sting.

O’Dea was particularly impresser with Francisca who went from winning a Gold Coast two-year-old maiden at her previous start to taking out a Class Two race on Wednesday.

“She was taking on older mares and she is pretty promising,” O’Dea said.
