Street Sense’s Capo Kane earns 10 qualifying points on the road to the Kentucky Derby

Three-year-old wires the field in Aqueduct’s one-mile Jerome Stakes

Street Sense's son Capo Kane added to a growing resume with an impressive win in the Jerome Stakes on New Year's Day at Aqueduct. The sophomore colt has now won two of three starts and earned 10 points for the Kentucky Derby.

The three-year-old broke alertly in the one-mile event and settled in nicely as the field travelled down the backstretch. And just as he did while breaking his maiden last out, Capo Kane never relinquished the lead en route to a solid, five-length win. 

Out of the unraced Hard Spun mare, Twirl Me, Capo Kane was bred by Rising Hill Farm in California. Twirl Me is a half to Stakes-placed Black Raja and out of a half to G1 winner Tuzla.

Capo Kane is the 76th career Black Type winner for Street Sense, whose other top performers in 2020 included G3 Matt Winn winner Maxfield, G2 Triple Bend winner McKinzie, multiple G3 winner Shared Sense, and juvenile G3 winner Cazadero. No stallion can top his four Graded Stakes-winning dirt colts last year.

Street Sense will stand the 2021 breeding season at Jonabell Farm for a fee of $60,000, stands and nurses.
