Street Sense motors on
to stakes roll of honour

DARLEY'S first-crop sire Street Sense was represented by his first Graded stakes winner on Sunday when Motor City captured the Grade 3 Iroquis Stakes at Churchill Downs.

By coincidence, the colt's victory came on the track where Street Sense enjoyed winning moments in the 2006 Breeders' Cup Juvenile and 2007 Kentucky Derby and under the same jockey, Calvin Borel.

Motor City is the highlight so far of 114 two-year-olds from Street Sense's first crop, which were bred off a fee of $75,000. The son of Street Cry, who is the only horse ever to pull off the Breeders' Cup Juvenile - Kentucky Derby double, is the sire of eight winners in total, among them the Grade 1-placed Miss Netta.

He stood the past season at Darley's Jonabell Farm in Kentucky for $40,000.

A homebred for LanternHill Farm LLC in Kentucky, the Ian Wilkes-trained Motor City is a half-brother to Satulagi, who won the Listed Winkfield Stakes and ran fourth in the Fillies' Mile for Stan Moore in 2006. They are out of the Danzig Connection mare Shawgatny, a half-sister to the Irish 2,000 Guineas runner-up Star of Gdansk.

Satulagi is catalogued as lot 1647 in foal to either Hurricane Run or Fastnet Rock in the upcoming Tattersalls December Sale.
