Street Boss filly becomes a G1 winner at Santa Anita

Fair Maiden flies home in the La Brea

Street Boss's three-year-old daughter Fair Maiden became her sire's newest G1 winner with a convincing victory in the G1 La Brea Stakes at Santa Anita on 26 December.

Near the rear of the field through the early stages of the seven-furlong contest, Fair Maiden made a sweeping five-wide move into the stretch and pulled away to an easy win under jockey Ricardo Gonzalez.

Last year as a two-year-old, Fair Maiden was a seven-length winner of the Catch a Glimpse Stakes and was third beaten a neck in the G1 Natalma, both on the turf at Woodbine. She returned this year off a lengthy layoff to win a six-furlong allowance at Churchill Downs in her first start on dirt and most recently was fourth in the Fort Springs Stakes going six furlongs on the dirt at Keeneland.

Fair Maiden was bred in Kentucky by her owner, Godolphin. She is out of Shieldmaiden, a winning daughter of Smart Strike whose second dam is G1 Kentucky Oaks winner Secret Status.

Fair Maiden is the seventh G1 winner for her sire Street Boss, whose best books are coming through with recent Australian G1 winner Elite Street (Exceed And Excel).

The first of the 20201 yearling sales series' sales commences on the Gold Coast at Magic Millions from 12 January to Inglis' Classic Sale, and onto the Inglis Premier Sale where Street Boss is represented by 13 yearlings.
