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.
