True Sense, full brother to Street Sense, to stud in Canada


True Sense, an unraced full brother to Kentucky Derby winner Street Sense, will begin his stud career in 2013 at Cam and Sherisse Ziprick's Ziprick Thoroughbreds near Russell, Man., in Canada. 

Joining True Sense on the stallion roster will be multiple stakes-placed Heavenly Chorus, himself a half-brother to three stakes horses.

True Sense, a 4-year-old Street Cry colt, will stand for an initial fee of $1,500 in Canadian funds, or approximately $1,473. Heavenly Chorus, an 8-year-old Unbridled's Song horse, will stand for approximately $1,228.

True Sense is out of the winning Dixieland Band mare Bedazzle, whose first foal was champion Street Sense, the only horse ever to win both the Breeders' Cup Juvenile and Kentucky Derby. Street Sense, who also finished second in the Preakness Stakes, won or placed in six other graded stakes events, including a victory in the 2007 Travers Stakes. He earned more than $4.3 million. Street Sense stands at Darley's Japan division.

Bedazzle, also the dam of stakes winner Elusive Sparkle, is a half-sister to stakes winner and producer Binalegend. It is the family of multiple graded stakes winner and prominent sire Mr. Greeley and Grade 1 winner Mona De Momma.

Heavenly Chorus won nine of 34 career starts, earning $238,099. He finished third in both the Journal Handicap and George Royal Stakes in Canada.

Out of the unraced Tabasco Cat mare Heavenly Cat, Heavenly Chorus is a half-brother to Grade 3 winners Dilemma and Heavenly Ransom, as well as multiple stakes winner and Grade 2-placed Capitano. His third dam is the Grade 1 winner and influential producer Sabin.
