Remnants of Hurricane Ida moved this year's P. G. Johnson Stakes to the main track at Saratoga but that didn't dampen the chances of Street Sense's daughter Miss Interpret. The improving two-year-old came from off the pace and won her second consecutive start at "The Spa" with Astern's Sail By grabbing the show position.
In the P. G. Johnson, Sail By lead through the half mile and stubbornly conceded the lead to Miss Interpret late down the stretch and was then just missed second by a nose at the wire.
Miss Interpret was bred by Michael Banahan, Ralph Gray and Dr. Dickson Varner in Kentucky. She is out of a half to G1 winners Paulassilverlining and Dads Caps as well as Stakes-placed Liza Too, dam of Listed winner Long Weekend.
Included amongo Street Sense's Stakes winners in 2021 are Maxfield, winner of three Graded Stakes including the G2 Stephen Foster and G2 Alysheba with the G1 Woodward suggested as his next start. 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).
