Elite Street put in a determined rally from seventh in the final furlong to nail Red Can Man by a short head at the wire to win the G3 Northam Stakes on Sunday, 1 May.
The five-year-old Street Boss gelding was making his first start since November, when he finished third in the G1 Winterbottom Stakes – a race he captured the previous year. Given time off to recover from a bleeding incident that occurred during that race, Elite Street showed no signs of rust as he ran down longtime leader Red Can Man in the stretch to win by a determined head.
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.
Street Boss is standing the 2022 breeding season at Jonabell Farm in Kentucky for $15,000, stands and nurses.
