JEFFERSON STREET (c, 3, Street Sense–Apiary, by Bernardini), in his second career start, began 2024 with a third-place finish behind Be You (Curlin) at Gulfstream Park in early March. The homebred then splashed home impressively with a nine-length score at Keeneland Apr. 11. Stepping up against optional claimers on the Derby undercard, the dark bay was a well-beaten third before being installed as the 5-2 second choice here. The colt tracked favorite El Capi (Maclean’s Music) from the third position, as the leader posted a brisk :21.77 for the first quarter mile. Rolling off the turn as the pace began to wilt, Jefferson Street took control at the eighth pole and ran for fun to win by eight lengths over Kunshan Bridge (Prontonico). The winner’s second dam, MGSW Fast Cookie (Deputy Minister), produced MGISW and sire Frosted (Tapit) and Apiary’s full-sister, GSW Indulgent. Fast Cookie is also responsible for the dam of MGSW/GISP Caramel Swirl (Union Rags). This is an extended female family which includes champion 2-year-old colt Midshipman (Unbridled’s Song) and MGISP Solomini (Curlin). As for Apiary, she has a Nyquist colt named Cooper, who is now a 2-year-old, and last year foaled a colt by Maclean’s Music. She was not bred in 2023. Lifetime Record: 5-2-0-3, $154,800.
