STREET Sense four-year-old Beat Street is like a good wine – he just keeps getting better with age.
The gelding brought up his fifth win of 16 career starts at the Sunshine Coast on Sunday, July 30.
“He’s always been a lovely horse but a very immature horse,’’ said trainer Stuart Kendrick.
“Hopefully, the older he gets the better he gets. That’s a little bit typical of that breed,’’ he said.
Beat Street ($3.50), ridden by James Orman, led all the way to win by nearly three lengths in the Benchmark 75 (1400m).
“I said to Jimmy today if you give him a dig you could lead them by three, but when he does that he can pull a bit over the further trip,’’ Kendrick said.
“So, I said have him where he’s comfortable – if he’s in front he’s in front if he’s back he’s back,’’ he said.
“He rated him perfectly. There just didn’t look a lot of speed on paper and it worked out that way.”
