Street Sense - horse of the year?

Street Sense will race this Saturday at Turfway Park in The Kentucky Cup Classic, has not won a race on the Polytrack surface in 2 tries.

But has had his greatest success in winning The Breeders Cup Juvenile and The Kentucky Derby following his Polytrack efforts.

The Kentucky Cup Classic will be run at 1 1/8 mile. Hard Spun will be Street Sense main rival in this race, finishing second to Street Sense in The Kentucky Derby.

Carl Nafzger, the trainer of Street Sense has decided that a short trip from Churchill Downs (his home base) would be wiser for Street Sense then to travel to the Hawthorne Gold Cup at Hawthorne or the Jockey Club Gold Cup at Belmont.

So the plan will be for Street Sense to take on a short field at the Kentucky Cup Classic then head to the his final race of the year, The Breeders Cup Classic.

A win in the Breeders Cup Classic would surely stamp Street Sense as the horse of the year.
