Darley Victoria shuttler Street Boss (USA) signed off Moonee Valley’s Saturday meeting with a running double via Scarlet Billows and O’Malley.
Both gallopers are from his first crop which is spearheaded by Melbourne stakes winners Thiamandi and The Quarterback.
O’Malley (4g Street Boss – Pink Champagne by Carnegie) is also on the brink of black-type after coming from last for a first-up victory in the William Hill Handicap (1000m). “He’s the best horse I’ve trained,” Enver Jusufovic said. “A few riders have told me he’s a Group horse but I want him to go through the grades first.
“He’s got a terrific turn of foot off a hot tempo and that’s the sign of a very good horse.”
Sold by Eliza Park International for $25,000 at the 2012 Inglis Melbourne Autumn Sale, he has now won 4 times in 7 starts and earned $175,325 for owners Rob Patterson and Pat Littlejohn. His dam is a daughter of NZ stakes winner Centennial (Centaine).
“He’s got a great temperament and is just a lovely horse,” Jusufovic explained. “Physically he’s really developed and is a lot stronger and a lot more robust since coming back from spell.”
Street Boss (Street Cry) has three yearlings catalogued for the Melbourne Premier starting with a filly from G3 Swettenham Stud Stakes winner Apple Danish. She has been entered by Phoenix Broodmare Farm (as agent) and is a half-sister to 6 winners.
