King Fury Proves Best in Street Sense S.


King Fury | Coady

Blue-blooded King Fury bounced back from an uninspiringly flat performance in the GI Breeders Futurity at Keeneland earlier this month to win Sunday’s Street Sense S. at Churchill Downs. Favored at 4-5 to make amends, the chestnut was a two-wide fourth going into  the first turn and remained comfortably off the rail heading into the far turn. Starting to make up ground approaching the quarter pole, the $950,000 Fasig-Tipton Saratoga yearling purchase wrested the lead from GISP Super Stock in the stretch and drew clear late to score by a half length over the favorite. A debut winner at Churchill Downs Sept. 3, the colt is the first foal out of Grade I winner and millionaire Taris (Flatter), who brought $2.35 million at the F-T Fall Mixed sale in 2014.
