Belmont Stakes 2012 Bloodlines: Street Life

Which horse has the best pedigree to handle twelve furlongs in the final leg of the Triple Crown on Saturday, June 9 at Belmont Park? My Belmont Stakes alphabetical list continues with Street Life.  
 
Street Life’s sire Street Sense (by Street Cry-IRE) won 6 of 13 races in 2006-07. The ’06 G1 Breeders’ Cup Juvenile champ also captured the G3 Tampa Bay Derby, G1 Kentucky Derby, G2 Jim Dandy, and G1 Travers. He banked more than $4.3 million for trainer Carl Nafzger and owner Jim Tafel. The promising young sire is responsible for graded winners Motor City and Castaway.
 
Street Sense’s sire Street Cry-IRE (by Machiavellian) went 5-for-12 from 2000-02 and won such prestigious stakes races as the G1 Dubai World Cup and G1 Stephen Foster. He has sired multiple stakes winners including Desert Party, Street Boss, and Zenyatta.
 

 
Street Sense’s dam Bedazzle (by Dixieland Band) went 4-for-22 from 1999-2002. She has also produced winner Elusive Sparkle (by Elusive Quality).

Street Life’s dam Stone Hope (by Grindstone) won 1 of 11 starts in 2005-06.   
 
Grindstone (by Unbridled) won 3 of 6 starts including the G1 Kentucky Derby in 1996 for trainer Wayne Lukas and owner Overbrook Farm. He sired 2004 Belmont Stakes winner Birdstone, who in turn sired 2009 Kentucky Derby winner Mine that Bird and Belmont Stakes winner Summer Bird.   
 
Stone Hope’s dam Fairest was an unraced daughter of Known Fact, out of stakes placed Roberto mare Whirl Series.    
 
Street Life enjoys a strong distance-oriented pedigree and has marathon influences through Grindstone on the dam side. The improving stretch runner rallied for the show in the G2 Peter Pan and will try to get involved late in the Belmont Stakes.
