Capo Bastone's first crop races in 2018
Updated October 15, 2016
Capo Bastone is by multiple Grade 1 winner Street Boss, one of a growing number of Grade 1-siring sons of the late Street Cry. With Mr. Prospector, Northern Dancer and Bold Ruler showing up back in the fifth generations of his foals, Capo Bastone should go well with a wide array of mares.
Street Cry and his sons have done good work with Deputy Minister-line mares. Street Cry sired at least five stakes winners on this cross, two out of daughters of Awesome Again. Street Boss has sired G1W/Kentucky Derby-placed Danza out of a mare by the Deputy Minister son French Deputy. Street Cry’s good sire son Street Sense has MGSW Cigar Street and another stakes winner out of Deputy Minister daughters on his resume.
Dixieland Band-line mares deserve strong consideration for Capo Bastone as well. Street Cry sired Kentucky Derby hero Street Sense and a Grade 3 winner out of daughters of Dixieland Band as well as Breeders’ Cup Juvenile champ New Year’s Day out of a mare by the Dixieland Band son Dixie Union. Dixie Union is also the damsire of a multiple stakes winner by the Street Cry stallion Street Boss.
There are at least 35 stakes winners bred Street Cry over Danzig and Street Boss is the sire of a trio of these, including two group/graded winners. Overall there are 22 group/graded winners on the cross, six at the G1 level.
Street Boss is the sire of a stakes winner out of a mare by the Storm Cat son Hennessy. Overall, there are at least 12 stakes winners bred Street Cry over Storm Cat, including G1SW Callback (dam by Forest Wildcat). Tale of the Cat, Tabasco Cat, Stormin Fever and Harlan (sire of Harlan’s Holiday) are among the other Storm Cat-line broodmare sires represented.
Street Cry and two of his sons have sired at least six stakes winners with the Nureyev broodmare line. Atticus is the damsire of two of these, including G1W Gabriel Charles (by Street Hero). Pivotal, Stravinsky and Zilzal are among the other Nureyev strains represented in the sample.
The great Zenyatta is by Street Cry out of a mare by the Roberto stallion Kris S., also the damsire of a stakes winner by Street Hero. The cross has worked with Street Boss too as his graded winner Decked Out is out of a mare by the Kris S. son You and I.
Mares from the In Reality/Valid Appeal line are good candidates for Capo Bastone. Street Sense has sired G2W Unlimited Budget out of a mare by Valid Appeal while Street Hero has a South American Group 1 winner out of a mare by the Valid Appeal son Successful Appeal.
Street Boss has done well with a return of Mr. Prospector and reinforcing this influence may also prove beneficial for Capo Bastone. Two of of his Grade 1 winners, Danza and 2016 Kentucky Oaks winner Cathryn Sophia are out of mares returning Mr. Prospector. Street Boss has also sired stakes winners out of a daughters of Mutdakddim (by Seeking the Gold), Lemon Drop Kid (by Kingmambo) and Not For Love, as well as out of a granddaughter of Woodman.
Cathryn Sophia is out of a dam by the A. P. Indy son Mineshaft and Street Boss has an additional stakes winner out of another A. P. Indy stallion, Golden Missile. The larger Street Cry/Seattle Slew cross has yielded eight stakes winners, six of them graded winners.
Mares showing Meadowlake in their pedigrees are also worth a look for Capo Bastone. Street Cry has sired G1W Seventh Street and G3W Street Magician from only four starters out of daughters of Meadowlake. The Street Boss multiple stakes winner Bench Warrant is also out of a mare by Meadowlake.
