Be Inspired by Jamieson Park’s success.
WATC Railway Stakes-G1 winner Inspirational Girl (Reliable Man) is the standout graduate from the rolling hills of Jamieson Park, and to have a G1 winning graduate after only a few years of operation must be incredibly satisfying for the team at Jamieson Park. They also sold SAJC Chairman’s Stakes-G3 winner Declarationofheart (Declaration of War) in the same draft, while their most recent drafts from Karaka include debut two year-old city winner Verstappen, debut winner in Hong Kong Snowalot, Australian city winner Kinloch, and Saint Alice who has won her last two starts in succession in 2022.
Jamieson Park’s Sam Munro said, “Last year we sent the bulk of our yearlings to Australia to mitigate the impact of the pandemic, however, the local sale held up really well, so this year, we are keeping the majority of our draft at home. Buyers have become accustomed to buying online and using local trusted agents to do their physical inspections for them. We do lots of video and images to help buyers out, and we believe we have a strong draft that will attract plenty of Australian and international attention. Our draft consists of mostly fillies this year, and a number of them have great residual value to complement their physical types.”
With sixteen yearlings across both books at New Zealand Bloodstock National Yearling Sale, 2022 is one of the farm’s biggest drafts to date. The must-inspect yearling has to be Lot 116, the half-sister by US Navy Flag to G1 winner Inspirational Girl and Australian Listed winner Ruettiger. Her dam is a full sister to G3 winner Rainbow Styling with huge depth in her pedigree giving this filly plenty of residual value too.
“A very athletic filly who is typical ‘Vinnie’, a medium sized running filly. She’s more like her sire than the older brother who is in work in Australia. We bought Thee Auld Floozie off the track. It’s very hard to find G1 winning mares like this with strong families, and we have high opinions of the foals she’s produced to date.”
A half-sister to Brisbane Listed winner Deep Image (Testa Rossa) is Lot 610, a filly by Iffraaj, from a strong Australian early maturing family that includes G1 winner Stella Cadente, Gimcrack winner Brilliant Bisc, and this filly’s dam, Starwish, is a full sister to Maribyrnong Trial Stakes placegetter Starfish.
“Be Inspired was one of the first mares we bought when we started Jamieson Park and at the same sale we also purchased her weanling who went on to be named Ruettiger. Inspirational Girl has an incredible record with nine wins from thirteen starts. This filly is a nice type and another filly from the mare, Brookspire, was recently group placed.” Inspirational Girl’s powerful finish first up to be beaten just over 3 lengths in a high quality C F Orr Stakes-G1 recently indicates that more major wins are in store.
The second foal, Lot 11, of G1 winner Thee Auld Floozie is a filly by hot sire I Am Invincible and this yearling’s two year-old older brother is in training with Anthony and Sam Freedman in Australia. Thee Auld Floozie won eleven races, five at black type level, and both her dam and second dam are also stakes winners.
A Deep Field filly, Lot 625, is the third live foal of tough racemare Summer’s Day (Darci Brahma) who won six races including a Listed race and placed at G2 level. Her first foal has trialled in Hong Kong recently, while her second foal is a two year-old by American Pharoah. This is the family of G1 winning sprinter Cannsea.
One of only four colts in the Jamieson Park draft, Lot 547 is the first foal of Listed winner Sacred Rhythm (Pentire), by young sire Almanzor, and this colt is from the family of many Australian stakes winners such as G1 placed sprinter and G3 winner Any Rhythm.
With plenty of quality pedigrees and some of the best stallions across Australia and New Zealand represented in their draft, Jamieson Park should be on everyone’s inspection list. If their early record of producing stakes winners is any indication, big things are still to come for this farm.
