The Alchemy’s blue blooded sire Where’s That Tiger had a handsome boost to his already impressive female line when talented 2yo filly Street Fancy landed Saturday’s G1 Starlet Stakes at Los Alamitos.
The daughter of Street Sense made it two wins from just three outings with a late closing rally to win the $300 000 Starlet by a length over four time stakes winner Stays In Vegas. The winner’s stable mate Sutton’s Fancy was back in third, but beaten four lengths by Street Fancy.
Winning trainer Phil D’Amato described the filly afterwards as, “She’s a big, giant scopey filly. She looks twice the size of anybody else in this field. I knew she wanted to go two turns. I was just hoping today was the day she showed she wanted it, and she did.”
A potential contender for next year’s G1 Kentucky Oaks, Street Fancy is out of Sam Houston Oaks winner Bold Angel, a daughter of Cat Thief (by Storm Cat) out of Fortyniner Fever, a daughter of Angel Fever.
The latter is not only dam of G1 Kentucky Derby winner and successful sire Fusaichi Pegasus, but also features as the second dam of G3 UAE 2000 Guineas runner up Where’s That Tiger (by Storm Cat).
Street Fancy is thus out of a three parts sister to Where’s That Tiger, and she looks capable of adding more black type next year to this magnificent female line.
Where’s That Tiger, sire of recent G3 Racing Assiociation Handicap hero Supertube, also made headlines in Singapore recently, when his son Singsurat picked up his third career win over 1900m on Sunday.
