The Pea Patch Overnight Stakes was the featured race on the Sunday card at Ellis Park, with a field of nine three-year-old fillies set to line up. However, a line of severe storms rolled through the area that afternoon and forced officials to take the race off the turf and move it to the main track, which caused a few trainers to opt not to run their charges.
One of the fillies that showed no aversion to the sloppy going was New Boss, a daughter of Street Boss, who took command at the quarter pole and pulled away from her rivals in the stretch to post an impressive six-length win.
It was the second Stakes win for New Boss, who captured the Allen 'Black Cat' Lecombe Memorial Stakes earlier this year. The chestnut filly entered Sunday’s race off two recent in-the-money finishes in both the Tepin Stakes and Mamzelle Stakes at Churchill Downs.
New Boss was bred in Kentucky by Hinkle Farms and is out of Denali Dreamscape, a winning daughter of Corinthian. New Boss’s second dam, Dreamscape, is a full sister to Champion and multiple G1 winning sprinter, Housebuster.
In addition to New Boss, Street Boss is the sire of 2021 Australian Stakes winners Anamoe (G1 Sires’ Produce Stakes), Arcaded (G2 Blue Diamond Fillies Prevue, etc.) and Street Life (Listed Adelaide Hills Railway Stakes). In North America he is represented by Top Executive (Auburn Stakes), Who Took the Money (Crescent City Derby), Lady Edith (Mamzelle Stakes) and Bienville Street (Sunshine Filly & Mare Turf Stakes).
Street Boss will stand the upcoming southern hemisphere season at Kelvinside, NSW, at a fee of $55,000, including GST.
