Ellamira charges late to take Campanile Stakes at Golden Gate

Three-year-old filly provides sire Street Boss with second Stakes winner of the day

Ellamira charged down the center of the course on her way to posting a one-and-a-half length victory in the Campanile Stakes at Golden Gate Fields on Sunday, 1 May.

It was the second Stakes win for the three-year-old Street Boss filly, who captured the Golden Gate Debutante over the Tapeta main track last year. Ellamira was also the second Stakes winner of the day for her sire, joining Elite Street, who won the G3 Northam Stakes in Australia.

Settled near the rear of the field through the early stages of the race, Ellamira began her move on the far turn, making a sweeping move while having to race five-wide. The bright chestnut filly continued her momentum through the lane as she continued to gobble-up ground while racing wide down the center of the course. Ellamira took the lead with a sixteenth of a mile left to go and drew off late to earn the victory.

Bred in California by her owner, Cole Ranch Partners, Ellamira is out of Tuesdays With P, a winning daughter of Ghostzapper. Tuesdays With P is a half-sister to Scherzinger, winner of the G2 Santa Monica and third in both the G1 Humana Distaff and G1 Vanity Handicap. Another half-sister, Bambolina, is the dam of Kitten’s Roar, winner of the G2 Goldikova Stakes and placed in the G1 E.P. Taylor Stakes. The female family also boasts 2021 Graded Stakes winner Army Wife, winner of the G2 Black-Eyed Susan Stakes and G3 Iowa Oaks.

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.
