Street Boss's stallion son Anamoe had already stamped himself as one of the best two-year-olds of his generation, and today he proved himself as one of the best three-year-olds taking out the G1 Caulfield Guineas in a history-making time at Caulfield on Saturday, 9 October.
Earmarked a star juvenile when dominating in the G1 Inglis Sires' Produce following placings in the G1 Blue Diamond and G1 Golden Slipper respectively, Anamoe returned at age three in career-best form, winning the G2 Run to the Rose in his debut before finishing second in the G1 Golden Rose. He now has cemented his position as a future Darley stallion with a victory in the G1 Caulfield Guineas.
Drawing barrier 15 which became 13, the colt had to do it the hard way and with a masterful ride by jockey Damien Oliver, the pair sat three-wide with cover throughout the race.
It was at the 200-metre mark that Oliver had Anamoe in position and asked the colt for the ultimate push to produce a master-class victory running 1:35.00 flat, the fastest-ever edition in the race's 140-year history.
Anamoe is out of the G1 Stakes-winning Redoute's Choice mare Anamato, who is due to foal this season to multiple G1 Stakes winner and fellow Darley sire, Blue Point.
The Caulfield Guineas has been won by such breed-shaping sires as Lonhro (2001), Redoute's Choice (1999) and Vain (1969).
