LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) -- The 2007 Kentucky Derby winner Street Sense is moving from Lexington to stand at stud in Japan.
 

The Courier-Journal reports (http://cjky.it/TCdKue) Dubai ruler Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid al Maktoum bought Street Sense from owner-breeder James Tafel in 2007. That purchase was part of a spree of purchases to boost Sheikh Mohammed's Darley breeding operation in the United States.
 
Street Sense has been at Darley in Lexington since he retired from racing after his 3-year-old campaign. Street Sense remains the only Breeders' Cup Juvenile winner to also win the Derby.
 

The announcement from Darley said that the operation has a number of mares in Japan and Street Sense will breed the majority of them in 2013.
