Son of Street Sense storms home to land second Stakes victory

Self Sense proves a class above in the Listed Ipswich Cup

Self Sense, an impressive son of Street Sense, blitzed his rivals in the Listed Ipswich Cup over 2150m to land his second Stakes success with ease.

Profiting from an inside alley Self Sense enjoyed a smooth run around the middle of the field before making his move with just under 1000m remaining. The gelding proved a class above his rivals as he stormed home to claim victory by a big margin.

Bred and trained by David Brideoake, Self Sense is out of Be My Person who has produced six multiple-winning foals. Well-related to dual G1 winner Dalmacia, he is also a half-brother to the classy filly Shylight who enjoyed success as a G3 winner of the Auraria Stakes.

Siring 47 Stakes-performers in his stud career so far, Street Sense’s progeny are headed by the likes of Callback, Wedding Toast, Street Fancy, and Sense of Occasion.

Street Sense is standing the 2017 season at Jonabell Farm for a fee of $45,000 stands and nurses.
