Darley [America] has just announced that Street Sense will be returning to the United States to stand the 2014 stud season. The 2007 Grade I Kentucky Derby winner stood the 2013 breeding season in Japan.
The United States hails Street Sense as a leading third-crop sire based on his progenies’ earnings that have topped $4.3-million. Numbering among his top winners are Grade I Sweet Reason and Grade I Aubby K. Street Sense is right at the top with his third-crop coming in as second only to Darley stallion, Discreet Cat.
Darley’s head of sales [America] Charles Boden said in a recent press release,
As Street Cry fast approaches hitting the 'century mark' in number of stakes winners, his best son [Street Sense] will be welcomed back with open arms by the breeding public and all of us here at Jonabell.
Street Sense received tremendous support from top breeders during his first five seasons here in America and also last year in Japan. His progeny on the track, as we had hoped, have had a wonderful year, and his nine 2013 stakes winners including grade I winners Aubby K and Sweet Reason, will ensure he will cover a quality book of mares next season.
The stallion is noted as being the only horse to become victorious in both the Grade I Juvenile Breeders’ Cup and also the Grade I Kentucky Derby.
