Stage Street Beats Titletown Five on Turf

Mike McCarty’s Stage Street took the lead a few jumps out of the gate and never looked back in winning the $52,118 Father’s Day feature at Churchill Downs by a length over Titletown Five.
 
Ridden by Rosie Napravnik and trained by Steve Asmussen, Stage Street completed the five furlongs on the firm Matt Winn Turf Course in :57.14. It was the second win of the day for Napravnik and Asmussen who teamed to win the sixth race with Finesse.
 
Stage Street led the field of 10 through an opening-quarter in :22.08 and entered the stretch with a one-length lead. Napravnik asked Stage Street for run in mid-stretch and he kicked away from the field. His lead was as many as three lengths before being geared down by Napravnik late.
 
A 3-year-old bay son of 2007 Kentucky Derby winner Street Sense, Stage Street earned $31,200 for Sunday’s victory and improved his bankroll to $91,060 with a career record of 2-2-0 from five starts.
 
Stage Street, part of an entry with Special Jo, who finished last, returned $5.80, $2.80 and $2.60. Titletown Five, making his turf debut after running last of nine in the Preakness (Grade I), finished second under Jon Court and returned $4 and $3.40. Good Tickled, at odds of more than 36-1, finished a neck back in third under Ricardo Santana Jr. and returned $8.80 to show.
