A striking dark bay son of Street Cry, Street Sense had just a maiden victory and a pair of third-place finishes in Grade 3 stakes before his breakthrough performance in the Breeders’ Cup Juvenile. Overlooked at odds of 15-to-1 in the field of 14, Street Sense got a perfect trip from jockey Calvin Borel and sprinted clear to a 10-length victory at Churchill Downs, earning him the Eclipse Award as 2-year-old male champion of 2006.

Owned by James Tafel and trained by Carl Nafzger, Street Sense carried his momentum into 2007, becoming the first horse to sweep the Juvenile and Kentucky Derby, rallying from next-to-last to capture the Run for the Roses by 2 ¼ lengths. Winner of the Grade 1 Travers, the country’s oldest stakes race for 3-year-olds, Street Sense was fourth in the 2007 Classic, and was edged for champion 3-year-old honors by Curlin. Street sense was retired with six wins and nearly $4.4 million in lifetime earnings.
