Kentucky Derby hero Street Sense off the mark

KENTUCKY Derby winner and freshman sire Street Sense was represented by his first winner on Saturday when his son Street Hunter landed a 6f maiden at Kyoto in Japan by eight lengths.

Katsuhiko Sumii-trained Street Hunter is the first foal out of multiple Listed scorer and Grade 1 Starlet Stakes second Quick Little Miss, a daughter of Giant's Causeway's brother Freud and a half-sister to Grade 1 Frizette Stakes winner Sky Diva.

Street Sense was crowned America's champion juvenile colt with a ten-length victory over Circular Quay in the 2006 Breeders' Cup Juvenile at Churchill Downs.

He became the only horse to win that race and follow up in the Kentucky Derby the following spring.

He won the run for the roses by two and a quarter lengths from Hard Spun, before finishing a head second to Curlin in the Preakness and adding victories in the Grade 2 Jim Dandy Stakes and Grade 1 Travers Stakes to his resume.

Street Sense, a son of Street Cry from the family of Classic sire Mr Greeeley, stands under the Darley banner at Jonabell Farm in Kentucky. His fee this year was $40,000.

Street Sense is also set to cover for Darley in Australia at Kelvinside at a fee of A$38,500 in the forthcoming southern-hemisphere breeding season.
