Nasty holds on in the Lady of Shamrock

Street Sense filly earns first Black Type win

Street Sense's three-year-old daughter Nasty earned her first career Black Type victory with a wire-to-wire performance in the Lady of Shamrock Stakes on December 26th at Santa Anita.

Nasty broke sharply and went straight to the lead in the one-mile turf contest under jockey Ricardo Gonzalez.  She opened up a six-length lead down the backstretch, maintained a two-length lead around the turn, and held off a late charge from Counterparty Risk to win by a head for trainer Richard Baltas and owner LNJ Foxwoods.  It was her first Stakes win, having finished third in the G3 Autumn Miss Stakes at Santa Anita two starts back.

A $230,000 Keeneland September yearling, Nasty was bred in Kentucky by Stonestreet Farm. She is out of the G1-placed Lion Heart mare Valiant Passion.

Nasty is the 75th career Black Type winner for Street Sense, whose other top performers in 2020 include G3 Matt Winn winner Maxfield, G2 Triple Bend winner McKinzie, multiple G3 winner Shared Sense, and juvenile G3 winner Cazadero.

Street Sense will stand the 2021 breeding season at Jonabell Farm for a fee of $60,000, stands and nurses.
