Darley welcomes leading sprinter Street Boss upon completion of racing career

Bruce Headley's, Marsha Naify's and Simon Yu’s Street Boss, the leading West Coast sprinter of 2008, will stand at Darley in Lexington at the conclusion of his racing career.

Charlie Boden, Head of Nominations at Darley America, said: “Street Boss is a multiple record-breaking, multiple G1-winning son of the most exciting young stallion in America. We’re obviously partial to Street Cry, and Street Boss truly shows the diversity of his sire’s progeny. What’s more, he’s a gorgeous looking horse.  Mr. Headley’s done a great job with him and we’re very excited that Street Boss will be joining the roster at Darley.”

Winner of his last two starts – the G1 Bing Crosby and the G1Triple Bend Handicap – Street Boss has a total of seven career victories and has earned $581,800 from 11 starts. He has set two new track records in 2008 at six furlongs, stopping the clock at 1:07:55 at at Del Mar in the Bing Crosby, and at Hollywood in the G3 Los Angeles Handicap posting a time of 1:08.67. He also equaled Santa Anita’s five-and-a-half furlong mark of 1:01.27 this year.

By the sire of the undefeated Zenyatta and fellow Darley stallion Street Sense, Street Boss, who was a $300,000 yearling, owns a Northern Dancer-free pedigree, and his Stakes-placed dam also is dam of the G2 performer Habiboo.

Street Boss will continue to race in the colors of Headley, Naify and Yu through this year’s Breeders’ Cup, where he is expected to start in the Breeders’ Cup Sprint.
