Street Boss (USA) boosted his black-type count with two feature winners in California on the weekend.
The Darley Victoria shuttler sired his 12th stakes winner with Metaboss in the G3 El Camino Real Derby (1800m) at Golden Gates on Saturday and his 13th when Bench Warrant claimed the LR Baffle Stakes (1300m) at Santa Anita on Sunday.
Metaboss (3c Street Boss – Spinning Yarns by Free House) earned 10 qualifying points toward the Kentucky Derby with an explosive two lengths and change victory.
The Kentucky bred colt was knocked down for $60,000 at the 2014 Barretts 2YO May Sale. He had won an 1800m turf maiden at Santa Anita on January 4.
Bench Warrant (3c Street Boss – Ola Docura by Meadowlake) rallied from last in the Baffle Stakes after fourth placed finishes in the G1 Los Alamitos Futurity and G2 San Vicente Stakes. The John Sadler-trained colt was sold for $110,000 at a 2YO Sale in March 2014 and had now earned $177,000 from 3 wins in 6 starts.
Street Boss (Street Cry) is the sire of USA Group 1 winners Danza (Arkansas Derby) and Capo Bastone (King’s Bishop Stakes) while, in Australia, he is a Top 10 sire on the third-season premiership with earnings of $666,130.
