Who Took the Money blasted past rivals in the final eighth of a mile to win the $100,000 Louisiana Champions Day Turf by a widening five lengths at Fair Grounds Dec. 11.
It was the second Stakes victory for the three-year-old Street Boss gelding; he also captured the Crescent City Derby over the Fair Grounds’ main track earlier this year.
Settled far off the pace early while saving ground along the inside rail, Who Took the Money shifted to the three-path on the far turn. He then swung six-wide at the top of the lane prior to hitting another gear, then rocketed past his rivals in the final furlong to win comfortably.
Bred in Louisiana by his owner Allied Racing Stable LLC, Who Took the Money is one of three winning runners out of Speights’ Colony, by Speightstown. The gelding hails from the female family of multiple Stakes winner Ms. Aerosmith and Graded Stakes winner Illiquidity.
Who Took the Money was the second Stakes winner of the day for Street Boss, who was also represented by the two-year-old, El Padrino, winner of the Listed Inglis Stakes at Royal Randwick in Australia. In addition to El Padrino, Street Boss is also represented in Australia this season by dual G1 winner, Anamoe.
Street Boss will stand the 2022 breeding season at Jonabell Farm in Kentucky for $15,000, stands and nurses.
