16/05/02 Four Wednesday Winners for Jeune

1122jeune.jpg (20615 bytes)

The rise in the Australian breeding ranks of the former record breaking Horse of the Year Jeune took another major step forward yesterday when he sired four winners around the country.

The Lindsay Park Stud based sire came to the fore at the Balaklava meeting in South Australia with a treble. Then for good measure later in the afternoon his only runner in Melbourne won in good style at Sandown.

Jeune's winning run kicked off in the first race at Balaklava when his two-year-old Roister proved too good for a promising bunch of juveniles. With Chad Lever aboard the Tony McEvoy trained filly too strong for stablemate Treeline.

Lemonade Parade, a member of the Cheltenham stables of Gary Kennewell, continued the winning run for Jeune when proving much too good in the fourth race of the day.

The Balaklava treble was completed when Typhoon Dolly led home another Jeune galloper in a quinella for the leading sire in the fifth event. The Dan O'Sullivan trained Typhoon Dolly (ex Bejewelled Zephyr) was too strong for Jeune Capers.

About an hour later in Melbourne, the Vincent Malady trained Petite Jeune Fille scored a gritty win over Saxaphone in a 2156 metre Class 6 Handicap at Sandown.

The great recent form of Jeune's progeny is no real surprise according to Lindsay Park's trainer Tony McEvoy.

McEvoy make the point that the gallopers by the Melbourne Cup winner are tending to be very versatile like their father on the track.

"Whilst Jeune's progeny are capable of winning as two-year-olds, I'm quite sure they will improve through their four, five and six-year-old days," McEvoy said.

"The Jeunes under our care thrive on training and look to be following in the footsteps of their father, who reached his peak as a six-year-old," he added.

A four time Group One winner Jeune is a son of the Group One winning sire Kalaglow. He is from the winning French mare Youthful. She is also the dam of the European Group Two winner Beneficial and the stakes placed pair of Dorset Duke and Muschana.

Jeune, a winner at two, trained on to be a winner at three, four, six and seven.

During his six-year-old season he was nothing short of sensational. He won the Melbourne Cup, Underwood Stakes and Orr Stakes during that period. His Orr Stakes win, first up after winning the Melbourne Cup, was breath taking. In the Orr Jeune stormed home to win in the course record breaking time of 1-21.1 for the 1400 metre distance.

Jeune will be standing at Lindsay Park Stud again this season for a fee of $13,200 (inc GST).
