Street Fancy wins the Grade 1 Starlet Stakes at Los Alamitos.

ARCADIA, Calif. – Street Fancy, upset winner of the Grade 1 Starlet in December at Los Alamitos, has been retired from racing and will be bred following her last-place finish Saturday in the Grade 2 Fair Grounds Oaks.

Trainer Phil D’Amato confirmed Tuesday that the filly’s owner, Agave Racing Stable, decided on retirement after Street Fancy misfired for the second time. In her previous start Feb. 6 at Santa Anita, Street Fancy banged her head in the starting gate and finished last in the Grade 2 Las Virgenes.

“Something has been amiss with her,” D’Amato said. “We were thinking about giving her time [and bringing her back], but she is worth so much as a broodmare.”

Street Fancy, by Street Sense, will be bred this spring to a yet-to-be-determined stallion. The 3-year-old is expected to be sold in foal at an auction later this year. Street Fancy retires with two wins and $227,545 in earnings from five starts.
