Shared Sense turned back the late challenge of Beau Luminaire to win the Tri-State Overnight Stakes by three-quarters of a length at Ellis Park Aug. 7.
It was the third Stakes victory for the four-year-old Street Sense ridgling, who took both the G3 Indiana Derby and G3 Oklahoma Derby in 2020.
Shared Sense broke alertly and was settled into third as he tracked the leader Fact Finding through the early stages of the race. Jockey Brian Hernandez Jr. swung Shared Sense wide on the far turn, and the duo quickly reeled in Fact Finding and took the lead. Shared Sense continued to hold sway through the stretch and held off a late bid from Beau Luminaire to post the victory.
A home-bred for Godolphin, Shared Sense is out of the Bernardini mare Collective, a full sister to G2 winner Penwith. His second dam Composure, a multiple G1 winner, has also produced G1 Stakes horses Centring and Tranquil Manner.
Street Sense is once again having a banner season. Among his Stakes winners so far in 2021 are Maxfield, winner of three Graded Stakes including the G2 Stephen Foster and G2 Alysheba. In addition to Maxfield, the stallion is represented by Graded Stakes winners Zaajel (G2 Mother Goose), Concert Tour (G2 Rebel) and Minister (G1 Kranji Mile in Singapore).
