Straight Shooting was a top stakes colt who won the Nassagaweya Stake and Metro Consolation at two, and at three was second in a Little Brown Jug elimination by just a neck to Breeders Crown champion If I Can Dream, and third in the Little Brown Jug Final behind Well Said and If I Can Dream.
He defeated many of the top stakes colts of his class including If I Can Dream, Vintage Master and Hypnotic Blue Chip. At two, Straight Shooting was second to Well Said by just 1-1/2 lengths after a challenging trip in the Champlain Stake.
