Who Took the Money cashes winning ticket in Louisiana Legends Turf

Street Boss gelding goes from last-to-first to win by a nose

He had to overcome a slow start and inclement weather, which moved the race off the turf onto the sloppy main track, but despite it all, Who Took the Money got up in the nick of time to win the Louisiana Legends Turf by a nose at Evangeline Downs on Saturday, 1 June.

The six-year-old Street Boss gelding is now a seven-time Stakes winner that has won 11 of 24 career starts and banked close to $600,000.

Off a step slow and void of any early speed, Who Took the Money raced in last as Sonya Knows Better led the field early. Angled out five-wide turning for home, Who Took the Money was full of run, putting in a furious rally down the center of the course to just nip Cosmic Train by a nose at the wire.

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.

The sire of former champion Australian galloper Anamoe - who won nine Group 1 races before retiring to stand at stud for Darley, Street Boss also sired Traffic Warden to win the G2 VRC Sires’ Produce Stakes (1,400m) at Flemington and Another Will to win the G3 Doncaster Prelude (1,500m) at Rosehill Gardens.

The stallion will again stand at Northwood Park in Victoria in 2024 for a service fee of $66,000, GST inclusive.
