Street Sense(USA) left from Darley Japan on October 1st. He is now in the export quarantine. Kenichiro Mishima (representative director of Darley Japan) said, ''He is a very promising stallion as he sired six graded winners including two G1 winners this year (worldwide). It's a shame that he will leave from Japan. But we will look forward to his further success in the US as well as his babies success in Japan.'' This year Street Sense covered 144 mares in Japan at a fee of 4,500,000 JPY (about 45K USD). - http://uma-furusato.com/news/detail/_id_74100
Street Sense will return to the US for the 2014 breeding season - http://www.thoroughbreddailynews.com/intraday_single.cfm?type=news&alertID=3086&CFID=84718614&CFTOKEN=81823208

  • rafirox · Street Sense has had a very good year. Street Sense's progeny has amassed over $4,000,000. His chief earner, the recently retired Unlimited Budget, is a multiple graded stakes winner. He has produced 10 stakes winners this season. What's not to like? Darley usually gives the best mares to new stallions, in attempt to add more $$$ to the stud fee, but I'm still positive Street Sense will be a success as a sire. He has not even had great mares. While they have been decent, I think a match with a multiple G1 winner would serve him well. It's only fitting Curlin is near the top of the 2nd crop sire list and Street Sense and Hard Spun are 1-2 in the 3rd crop sire list, right? · 346 days ago
  • rafirox · In fact, the Top 3 3rd Crop sires are all owned by Darley, just to add. I don't understand the notion that Street Sense is not wanted. The 3rd Crop Sire list, his conformation, his stud fee, his bloodlines and his racing career all verify why Street Sense has the potential to be a good sire. He is just scratching the surface of his potential. · 346 days ago
Which horse that retired sound do you think should have been allowed at least one more race , after ending on a loss to gain redemption? I would have to go with this guy. I don't think he was done yet, he would have continued to give Curlin a run for his money. The sloppy monmoth BCC was not a good race to go out on.

  • Jay S. · Woulda liked to have seen Bodemeister return, but have no real idea how serious his situation was. IMO, and I get it cause of the incredible syndication $$$s, but I think Devil's Bag had some more run in him. · 382 days ago
  • Sully · Since the Best Pal is this weekend, I'd have to add a personal favorite of mine. Creative Cause. Think if he would've returned to the track after the Preakness, he'd still be a top contender today. · 382 days ago
Nice looking filly by Street Sense: http://www.facebook.com/photo.php?fbid=10152077186549240&set=a.10152077122429240.1073741825.261778564239&type=3&src=http%3A%2F%2Fsphotos-e.ak.fbcdn.net%2Fhphotos-ak-frc1%2F856132_10152077186549240_1725697023_o.jpg&smallsrc=http%3A%2F%2Fsphotos-a.xx.fbcdn.net%2Fhphotos-ash3%2F11323_10152077186549240_1725697023_n.jpg&size=1000%2C800

  • Dressage3295 · Don't know if anyone else noticed this (I just did), but she has the EXACT same head as her great grandsire, Damascus · 526 days ago
Street Sense's full brother, True Sense, never raced 'cause of injury. He's coming to stand in Manitoba, kinda neat.
  • travel_vic · Cahill Road, Unbridled's full brother bowed in the Wood on his way to the Derby. He has stood in the Pacific Northwest to good reviews for a good while now. · 545 days ago
  • Sysonby · Also neat · 545 days ago
I don't believe this horse gets enough credit. Proved to be the best in a generation of strong runners. He won both the BC Juvenile & KY derby in an impressive fashion, and continued to run well after. He also has produced some really nice foals.

  • goblin · shadowno, The anabolic steroids were legal and widely used in 2007. If Asmussen has had positives for them since their ban in 2008, I have not heard of it. (What else he has done, I don't truly know.) As I said above, Curlin absolutely raced free of any/all meds in Dubai, as required. · 580 days ago
  • gold n money · What we don't know is how well SS would have done if he had continued racing. I think most people think higher of Curlin because he raced longer not necessarily better. We got to see him as a 4 year old. Had SS and Hard Spun continued I don't think he would have been quite as dominant. · 580 days ago

  • travel_vic · STARTING to happen? · 666 days ago
  • Buckpasser · In rereading the article, Street Sense is standing for one season 2013 at the Darley Farm in Japan from having stood at the Darley Farm in KY. This appears to me to be a relocation to improve his book of mares and increase his top progeny. AI would be a help certainly, but I always assumed that the reason it wasn't done was there would be a decrease in the stud fees charged. After all most of the harness horse stud fees are far less than theTB ones. · 666 days ago
Another good one gone to Japan. We certainly like sending our good up and coming studs to Japan, don't we? At least he is with Darley, so there still is that chance that he could come back to the US. In all of the years that I have been around, I have never seen so much of our best stock being sent to Japan, and other foreign countries (mostly Japan though). I would not be suprised if Havre De Grace was sold to Japan, since they like to buy all of our best mares as well. I probably stand alone in believing this, but I think that since Japan buys some of our best stock, we should do the same with theirs. North American breeders seem to be "terrified" of the thought of buying Japanese bred (or European bred) horses. I hate to say it, but the Japanese are breeding and buying better stock than we are. Oh well.
He has had some nice winners in Japan. A relocation from one Darley farm in KY to one in Japan makes perfect sense. The Japanese are importing sires that they think will greatly enhance their breeding and racing operations. I say good for them
Street Sense has become a top sire.
  • Mary Z. · How so, Mr Thirsty, also, I disagree with your thread opener about UR, unless all of my favorites are also the best and just had bad trips when they lost. · 779 days ago
  • jmac500 · I totally agree with you Mr. Thristy. Street Thug, Street Brawl, Street Life, Aubby K and Ice Cream Silence are good horses. · 779 days ago
Street Sense is the horse who got me into horse racing. When he and Calvin came from 19th to first in the Derby and then Calvin was crying after the race...I just fell in love. Then I started following Street Cry's progeny, read about this horse named "Zenyatta," who had won all three of her first starts...and you can guess the rest! :)
STREET SENSE A WONDERFUL WIN IN THE KD THAT WILL ALWAYS BE REMEMBER!!
Curlin shmurlin, Street Sense was the man!
So, then does Street Sense get two Eclipses? Awesome trips in CD races.... BC Juvenile and Derby. Or maybe... Borel deserves those awards. Pilot of the year...
If there was an Eclipse for "Trip of the Year" he would have been a smashing winner. He peaked at the right time, and was lucky to catch a soft field in the Travers.
