Purchased from the Tattersalls Ireland Yearling Sale, he is by RED JAZZ, who is standing in Germany: https://www.bloodhorse.com/horse-racing/articles/230879/red-jazz-leased-to-gestut-lindenhof. We are a fan of the sire, as we own 4-time winner RED BOND (highest OR to date: 92)
Mambo Beat is a full-brother to the Group 3 and Listed winner SNAZZY JAZZY, when also trained by Clive.

If you choose to follow fashion at the yearling sales, there’s little opportunity to purchase value, and so often, it pays to look the other way. That’s precisely what we’ve done here, with the assistance of Clive Cox, and sought out an outstanding individual who is bred from the fantastic broodmare Bulrushes. She’s already produced 4 black type performers including Clive’s Snazzy Jazzy.

Training Update: There’s a saying in racing: “No foot, no horse” meaning if you have painful foot problems, or an inability to shoe a horse, then you’re not making it to the races. We’ve struggled all year with one pesky hoof. We’ve treated it, cajoled it, iced it, rested it etc. Well, in the end we’ve found that we’ve have to go in an operate to remove a deep seated horn problem. It’s the best thing we could have done. He’s right as rain now and around Christmas time he should be flying through the preparations for a return to the track, hopefully a very well handicapped horse. Should be ready to rock n roll for a second half of the AW season campaign and should offer current, and would be owners a very interesting and exciting opportunity. He’ll operate on the turf next Summer and most likely be sold in October at the Horses In Training sale, as a well handicapped horse, all being well.
