Elite Street continued his winning ways with a powerful late charge to capture the G3 Roma Cup by three-quarters of a length over Red Can Man at Belmont Park in Australia on Saturday, 14 May.
It was the second straight Stakes victory for the five-year-old Street Boss gelding since returning from a five-month layoff. Elite Street now has five Stakes wins from his last six starts.
Elite Street’s Roma Cup win was a carbon copy of his last start, where he rallied from seventh in the final furlong to defeat rival Red Can Man by a head in the G3 Northam Stakes on 1 May. The only difference this time was the margin of victory.
Elite Street was bred in Australia by Anita Vale Stud and is out of Elite Ateates, a winning daughter of Exceed And Excel. Second dam Ateates was a multiple Graded Stakes winner (G2 Moet & Chandon Champagne Stakes, G2 Silver Shadow Stakes, etc.) and is a full sister to Australian Champion, Ruffles (G1 Newmarket Handicap).
Street Boss is the sire of 61 Stakes winners worldwide. He currently is among the Leading Australian sires of three-year-olds this year, led by the outstanding four-time G1 winner and future Darley stallion, Anamoe. In North America, Street Boss is represented by 2022 Stakes winners Who Took the Money (EVD Classic Stakes), Ellamira (Campanile Stakes) and Lady Edith (Wishing Well Stakes).
Street Boss is standing the 2022 breeding season at Jonabell Farm in Kentucky for $15,000, stands and nurses.
