This remarkable gelding is by first season sire JIMMY CHOUX the 5x Group 1 winning son of ill-fated Champion NZ sire for 2010-11, THORN PARK. THORN PARK is the sire of 254 individuals to hit the race track to date, which includes 160 winners (62%) and earnings in excess of $16 million. He has produced 16 stakes winners and 13 stakes placegetters such as COX PLATE winner OCEAN PARK, 4x Group 1 winner VEYRON and of course JIMMY CHOUX himself.

JIMMY CHOUX is bred on a double strain of the highly influential stallion, BLETCHINGLY. He notched up one Group 2 win as a 2YO and dominated the 3YO racing scene in New Zealand by taking out the DERBY, 2000 GUINEAS, HAWKES BAY GUINEAS, WELLINGTON GUINEAS, WELLINGTON STAKES and WAIKATO GUINEAS. He then tested the water in Australia and blitzed the 2011 ROSEHILL GUINEAS field before finishing an unlucky 2nd to PINKER PINKER in the COX PLATE. Throughout his career, he amassed a total of $3.6m, winning 12 races from 800m-2400m. Impressively, 23 of his 26 starts were black type level and 15 of these were at Group 1 level (for 5 wins and 5 placings).

Physically, this gelding commands attention wherever he goes. He is built like a powerhouse and we expect him to be up and going early, in accordance with his pedigree. He is out of the unraced FLYING SPUR mare, My Parlay who is in turn out of the two-year-old Group 1 winning daughter of STRAIGHT STRIKE in GOOD FAITH. My Parlay has had three foals to race for 2 winners both of which won as two-year-olds. This is also the family of multiple Group one winner DAFFODIL and two-year-old Group 2 winner, BELIEVE YOURSELF who also finished fourth in the 2014 GOLDEN SLIPPER. FLYING SPUR is currently 4th on the broodmare sires premiership behind DANEHILL, ZABEEL & PEINTRE CELEBRE. He is the broodmare sire of Group 1 winners SEBRING, HEADWAY, GRAND JOURNEY, PREFERMENT, DELAGO DELUXE. Stakes winners out of FLYING SPUR mares include THUMP, MILITARY ROSE, TULLAMORE, MOONOVERMANHATTAN, WILD AND PROUD, SPEEDINESS, HEART TESTA and ATMOSHPHERICAL. He was raised at Curraghmore Stud in New Zealand who have produced 5 stakes winners from their 2013 draft to date including Group 1 winner FIRST SEAL and our very own KURO.
