Anamoe wins G1 Caulfield Guineas in a history-making time

Street Boss's son joins race honour roll which includes Lonhro, Redoute's Choice and Vain

Street Boss's stallion son Anamoe stamped himself as one of the best two-year-olds of his generation and today stamped himself as one of the best three-year-olds taking out the G1 Caulfield Guineas in a history-making time at Caulfield on Saturday, 9 October.

Earmarked a star two-year-old dominating in the G1 Inglis Sires' Produce following placings in the G1 Blue Diamond and G1 Golden Slipper respectively, Anamoe returned at three in career-best form winning first-up in the G2 Run to the Rose, second in the G1 Golden Rose, and has cemented his position as a future Darley stallion with a victory in the G1 Caulfield Guineas.

Drawing barrier 15 which became 13, the colt had to do it the hard way and with a masterful ride by jockey Damien Oliver, the pair sat three-wide with cover throughout the race.

It was at the 200-metre mark that Oliver had Anamoe in position and asked the colt for the ultimate push to produce a master-class victory running 1:35.00 flat, the fastest-ever edition in the race's 140-year history.

The Caulfield Guineas has been won by breed-shaping sires as Lonhro (2001), Redoute's Choice (1999), Vain (1969).

Anamoe is out of the Stakes-winning Redoute's Choice mare Anamato, who is due to foal to second-season sire Blue Point.

Street Boss stands this season at Kelvinside, NSW at a fee of $55,000 including GST.
