Street Sense to continue stud career in Japan

STREET SENSE, who made US turf history in 2007 when becoming the first Breeders' Cup Juvenile winner to land the Kentucky Derby, will join Darley's Japanese roster next year.

The eight-year-old son of Street Cry has spent his first five years at stud at Darley's Jonabell Farm in Kentucky, where he stood this year at a fee of $40,000.

Street Sense's oldest crop are three-year-olds and among his best runners are the Grade 3 winners Castaway and Motor City.

He has had six horses race in Japan Racing Association contests in Japan and four of them have won.

Darley Japan director Kenichiro Mishima said in a statement: "We are very pleased to be able to provide such a wonderful stallion to breeders in Japan.

"Street Sense was outstanding on the track and his first crop have made a good debut across the world, including Japan where he has achieved great success. He is a stallion who has good potential."

Street Sense's Japanese fee will be announced at a later date.

>>Another son of Street Cry, Desert Party, will stand at Sequel Stallions in New York next year after spending his first two seasons at stud at Jonabell Farm.
