Well-Traveled Street Sense Colt Debuts a Winner

Stretch Ride | Coady

7th-Churchill Downs, $118,425, Msw, 9-17, 2yo, 6f, 1:10.76, ft, 1/2 length.
STRETCH RIDE (c, 2, Street Sense–Q Go Girl {SP}, by Quality Road), sold for a mere $5,000 at last year's Fasig-Tipton October Sale, was consigned by Knockanglass Stables to this year's Arqana May Breeze-Up and made for a solid profit when hammering to West Point for €100,000 (under-tack breeze). Sent off at pennies shy of 14-1 for this first trip to the races, Stretch Ride led briefly after the break before allowing favored Handsome Herb (Practical Joke) to take up the running. Off the bridle and ridden along by Peruvian Martin Chuan three furlongs out, he was put to a more vigorous drive in upper stretch, angled out three wide leaving the eighth pole and edged past pace-pressing Agoo (Munnings) to take it by a half-length. After earning her lone career stakes placing in the 2019 Panthers S., Q Go Girl was purchased by Jackpot Ranch for $147,000 at that year's Fasig-Tipton Summer HORA Sale. Stretch Ride is her first foal and she produced a Yaupon colt this season before visiting Street Sense's GI Carter H.-winning son Speaker's Corner. Sales history: $5,000 Ylg '22 FTKOCT; €100,000 2yo '23 ARQMAY. Lifetime Record: 1-1-0-0, $69,000. Click for the Equibase.com chart or VIDEO, sponsored by FanDuel TV.
