17/06/02 Jeune Gelding Wins Jeune at Lindsay Park Handicap

In a fitting result Lemonade Parade, a three-year-old gelding by the Melbourne Cup winner Jeune, scored an impressive win in the Jeune at Lindsay Park Handicap at Cheltenham on Saturday.

From the Jackson Square mare Amfast, Lemonade Parade impressed winning trainer Gary Kennewell and jockey David Tootell with his win.

Tootell was especially taken with the youngster's ability to knuckle down in the race when required.

"When I snagged him in behind them he really concentrated," Tootell said after the win before telling connections of his delight at the finish unleashed by the winner.

Lemonade Parade is just one of a large group of gallopers by Jeune which have been setting the track on fire in recent weeks.

After being crowned as the Australian Horse of the Year, Jeune was retired to Lindsay Park Stud by one of the industry's greats, the late CS Hayes.

Already the sire of some top class performers like Wakeful Stakes winner Lolita Star, stakes winning two-year-old Pompous, and fellow stakes winners After Beune and Party Boy, the best of Jeune's progeny is by most good judges still yet to come.

Lindsay Park's head trainer Tony McEvoy is just one fan of Jeune, who feels his present day performers can only get better.

McEvoy made 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 $11,000 (inc GST).
