The Greentree Stable geldings total earnings are 82,086; thus he is in the group of ten sons and daughters of Count Fleet to earn 00,000 or more. No other stallion as young as Count Fleet has that many winners of so much money. STRAIGHT FACE also is one of five offspring of Count Fleet to win stakes in three seasons, an indication of durability. Four other stakes winners by this sire have won stakes in two seasons.
