From the Goffs Landrover Sale, where we bought our dual Grade 1 winner Marie's Rock, also trained by Mr Henderson.
Far and away the very best pedigree we’ve ever been able to source on behalf of our MPR owners, this half-brother to the multiple Grade 1 winner DON POLI, comes highly recommended. Don Poli is not the mare Dalamaine’s sole claim to fame, however, everything she touches seems to turn to BLACK TYPE gold, with her progeny’s race record being littered with Graded Cheltenham and Punchestown festival winners galore. Her progeny just seem to go from strength to strength as they mature.
This lovely 4yo gelding is a smashing individual, he’s the perfect size, at just short of 16.2hh. He looks very forward and very racy, he could hit the track in the NH season 2022/20223, most probably in a bumper, and you’d hope he could make up into a Champion Bumper type, if everything has gone well. Both hurdling and chasing should come alike, but he looks very sharp and fast to us, from what we’ve seen so far, although his genes suggest that not only could be a top top-class recruit, but he could stay particularly well, in time.
Jukebox Jury has only been on the National Hunt scene, as a stallion, for 3 seasons or so, and he’s starting to command an increasing nomination price, for mares to be covered by him. He’s had Group performers on the Flat, courtesy of his Sadlers Wells line genes, but he’s really finding his niche as a Jumps stallion, with the likes of Grade 1 Cheltenham Festival winner Farclas and Santani as well as the Grade 1 Cheltenham Festival placed, War Lord. Hurdlers and Chasers come alike to this very talented and versatile stallion. Group 1 winner Princess Zoe has been shining across both codes too - winning on hurdling debut!
You’d imagine our gelding’s future is likely to take him to any number of festivals, God willing. He has all the attributes to make up into a high-class performer, for Nicky Henderson, from his Seven Barrows base near Newbury.
An €80,000 purchase, in conjunction with the renowned Bloodstock agents Highflyer, from the Goffs Land Rover Sale in June 2022, his pedigree and physique both have the wow factor and we hope he will continue to, once he hits the track. (See the pedigree page attached, along with an update in the gallery.)
He is eligible for the Goffs Land Rover Bumper at the 2023 Punchestown Festival, a €100,000 race with past winners that have gone on to become Cheltenham champions in their own right.
PEDIGREE UPDATE: His half-sister POLITESSE wins! https://www.irishracing.com/news?prid=234030
Jukebox Jury has made an exceptional start to his national hunt sire career and we think it could just be the mating that the mare needs to produce yet another top-level animal.
Training Update (18th March): Nicky is very pleased with how he has been taking his training and his daily work is going well. This is a combination of going up the gallops in both single file and upsides. He is grouped with the bigger Seven Barrows 'future chaser' types, who will be given some work on the grass shortly. He looks every inch the traditional National Hunt chasing type that his pedigree suggests he will be. He has given us no reason at this stage to believe he can’t be.
He looked in great form with himself at Seven Barrows when we visited with owners. Here he is, with Nicky:
