Champion Street Sense Sires First Winner

Kentucky Derby winner's first winner scores by eight lengths in Japan.

Street Sense , a champion and a Kentucky Derby Presented by Yum! Brands (gr. I) winner, was represented by his first winner from his first crop when his son Street Hunter won July 8 in Japan. The 2-year-old colt scored by eight lengths at six furlongs at Kyoto.

Bred in Japan by Northern Racing, Street Hunter is out of the stakes-winning Freud  mare Quick Little Miss, who placed in the Hollywood Starlet Stakes (gr. I) and the Oak Leaf Breeders’ Cup Stakes (gr. I). Quick Little Miss, a half sister to grade I winner Sky Diva, was sent from the United States to Japan in 2008. She had been bought for $1.2 million by Katsumi Yoshida at the 2008 Keeneland November breeding stock sale from Taylor Made Sales Agency, agent.

Street Sense (Street Cry—Bedazzle, by Dixieland Band), is the sole horse to win the Kentucky Derby and the Bessemer Trust Breeders’ Cup Juvenile (gr. I). Street Sense, who also won the Travers Stakes (gr. I), stands for $40,000 at Sheikh Mohammed’s Darley near Lexington.
