A talented, graded stakes winning miler, The Lieutenant, is a half-brother to Justify – the only Triple Crown winner to retire undefeated – and is by Street Sense – the first ever winner of the Breeders’ Cup Juvenile and Kentucky Derby.
The Lieutenant is half-brother to the mighty Justify, who is by Scat Daddy, a son of Johannesburg, from the Hennessy branch of the Storm Cat line, and Hennessy can also be introduced through Henny Hughes and Catus Rdige. The cross of Street Sense and his sons with Storm Cat line mares has been an exceptionally successful one with grade one winner Callback out of a mare by Forest Wildcat (sire of Wildcat Heir and D’Wildcat); grade one winner Street Fancy out of a mare by Cat Thief; graded stakes winner Tiger Moth out of a mare by Sir Cat; and stakes winners out of mares by Giant’s Causeway (sire of First Samurai, Freud, Eskendereya, Cowboy Cal, Creative Cause, Frost Giant, Hold Me Back, Heatseeker and Noble Causeway), Forestry (sire of Discreet Cat and Shackleford), Stormy Atlantic and Stormin Fever, and Storm Cat might also be brought in through Tale of the Cat (who is bred similarly to Johannesburg, the grandsire of sire Justify, and is sire of Lion Heart and grandsire of Kantharos), Storm Boot, Storm Creek, Sea of Secrets, Harlan’s Holiday (sire of Into Mischief), Bernstein, Mountain Cat, High Yield, Tactical Cat and Tabasco Cat.
Street Sense has also done very well with mares from the Danzig branch of Northern Dancer, this cross producing ten stakes winner. Four of these, including grade one winners Hallowed Crown and Politeness, are out of mares from the Danehill branch. There is a grade two winner and a grade three winner out of a mare by Danzig Connection, and a grade two winner out of a mare by Cape Cross, a son of Green Desert, and a stakes winner out of a mare by Boundary (sire of Big Brown). It might also be worth introducing Belong to Me, Dayjur, Exchange Rate, War Chant, Langfuhr, Lost Solider, Hard Spun and War Front (who would give Relaunch and a sister).
Out of mares from the Sadler’s Wells branch of the Northern Dancer, Street Sense has a graded stakes winner out of a mare by Singspiel, a graded winner out of a mare by Horse Chestnut, and stakes winners out of mares by Medaglia d’Oro and his sire, El Prado (also sire of Kitten’s Joy and Artie Schiller) and Galileo (represented in the U.S. by Cape Blanco and Magician). There has also been success for Street Cry – sire of Street Sense – and sons with mares descending from Sadler’s Wells’ three-quarters brother, Nureyev, including via Atticus and Stravinsky, with other sources including Theatrical, Spinning World and Fasliyev.
Street Sense is out of a mare by Ghostzapper, a son of Awesome Again, who is by Deputy Minister. It could be worth crossing The Lieutenant back over mares from other branches of Deputy Minister, including Silver Deputy (sire of Posse, who should be particularly good here, Badge of Silver and Spring at Last), Touch Gold (sire of Mass Media and Medallist), Dehere (sire of Graeme Hall), Deputy Commander, French Deputy, Forest Camp and Defrere.
Street Sense has sired six stakes winners out of mares by A.P. Indy, graded winners Avery Island and Doctor Mounty among them. The Lieutenant’s second dam is a grade one placed daughter of the A.P. Indy son, Pulpit, so it would be interesting to introduce the similarly-bred Mineshaft (sire of Discreetly Mine and Dialed In), Malibu Moon, Flatter and Congrats. Full Mandate is a reverse A.P. Indy/Deputy Minister cross to the dam of The Lieutenant, and other A.P. Indy sources include Stephen Got Even (sire of First Dude), Friends Lake, Golden Missile, Majestic Warrior and Jump Start.
Crossed back over mares from his own Mr. Prospector sire line, Street Sense sired grade one winner Wedding Toast out of a mare by Coronado’s Quest, a son of Forty Niner, also sire of Distorted Humor (who himself is responsible for Any Given Saturday, Cowtown Cat, Drosselmeyer, Flower Alley, Jimmy Creed, Maclean’s Music and Sharp Humor), End Sweep (also sire of Trippi and Precise End), Twining, Roar, Jules, Gold Case, and Gold Fever. Still with the Mr. Prospector line, Street Sense grade one winner McKinzie, is out of a mare by Petionville, and there is also a Street Sense graded stakes winner out of a mare by that horse’s sire, Seeking the Gold, also sire of Petionville and Cape Town. From the Fappiano branch of Mr. Prospector, Street Sense has stakes winners out of mares by Unbridled and his son, Grindstone (sire of Birdstone). Unbridled is also sire of Broken Vow, Empire Maker (sire of Pioneerof the Nile and Bodemeister), and Unbridled’s Song, himself sire of Rockport Harbor, First Defence, Old Fashioned, Half Ours, Dunkirk, Songandaprayer and Even The Score.
The cross of Street Sense over mares from the Damascus line has yielded stakes winners from daughters of Time For a Change, Gilded Time and Personal Flag. Street Sense has also sired grade one winner Sweet Reason out of a mare by Mt Livermore (sire of Orientate, Housebuster and Peaks and Valleys) and stakes winner Silverette out of a mare by Holy Bull (sire of Macho Uno and Flashy Bull).
