New Stakes winner for Street Sense in dominant display

Royal Command goes point to post in Listed event in Australia

The global influence of Street Sense is still being felt and on Saturday, 28 November, Royal Command produced a Black Type performance the envy of any owner, trainer, or jockey taking out the Listed Tattersall's Cup at Ascot, Western Australia.

Jumping from barrier three of a 12-horse field, Royal Command was coaxed to jump and box seat one-off, one-back for the 2,100m journey.

Under G1-winning jockey, William Pike, the Adam Durrant-trained runner put in a tough performance in a fast-run race and surged away at the 200m mark to win by 1.6 lengths.

Bred by renowned Australian owner-breeder, Bob Peters, Royal Command is from the final southern hemisphere-bred crop of Street Sense who stood five seasons in Australia.

Royal Command's dam Stormy Nova is herself a two-time G3 winner up to 1,600m and has produced four Stakes winners.

Street Sense boasts an impressive CV in his home country, no stallion can top his four Graded Stakes-winning dirt colts this year: unbeaten Maxfield in the G3 Matt Winn, multiple G1 winner McKinzie in the G2 Triple Bend, juvenile TDN Rising Star Cazadero in the G3 Bashford Manor, and three-year-old Shared Sense in the G3 Indiana Derby and G3 Oklahoma Derby.

He stands the coming season at $60,000 at Jonabell Farm, Kentucky. Stands and nurses.
