OneFastHorse.com has learned today that Hidden Brook Farm and Dan Zucker have a new partner in their promising 3-year-old colt Street Life. According to Hidden Brook’s Jack Brothers, Robert and Janice McNair have bought into the Street Sense colt under the banner of Magnolia Racing Stable, the name the McNairs gave their racing operation after the sale of their Stonerside Farm in 2008.
“We’re honored to be in business with them,” Brothers said. “We’re very excited that we’re partners on a colt with so much potential.”
Produced from the Grindstone mare Stone Hope, Street Life broke his maiden last time out in his second career start at Aqueduct for trainer Chad Brown.
“They were really attracted to the horse and the manner in which Street Life won,” said Brothers. “It was a visually impressive race, and he displayed a quick turn of foot. The jockey was wrapped on him by the time they hit the wire and he galloped out very well.”
Brothers said Street Life is being pointed to his first-condition allowance in New York.
“Chad said he came out of the race great and that he has been training well,” Brothers said. “He’ll tell us where to go after his next race. If that goes well, we’ll weigh all our options at that point.”
Robert McNair is owner of the Houston Texans of the National Football League (NFL).
Hidden Brook Farm, based in Paris, Ky., is comprised of partners Jack Brothers, Dan Hall, Mark Roberts, Sergio de Sousa and Danny Vella.
