JUKEBOX (AUS)(Snitzel-Jestatune, by Rory's Jester)
Aquis Farm, NSW. Fee: $11,000

Jukebox Overview

Brilliant Group-winning Snitzel sprinter Jukebox is a popular new late addition at Aquis’ Hunter Valley base.

Undefeated in two starts at 2, the Ciaron Maher trained colt was a dominant winner of the Listed Inglis Premier and returned in the spring to win the stallion-making Group Three MRC Vain Stakes.

In the Vain Stakes Jukebox produced a race-best sectional for the final 200m.

‘’He is the most natural athlete I have ever worked with, both in Australia and in England. It was a huge disappointment when he had to be scratched on the eve of the Blue Diamond. His work leading into that race had been sensational - on the Tuesday prior he ran 11 flat on the bridle for the final 200m and we were as sure as you can be, that he would win the Group One’’ – Co-trainer David Eustace.

A naturally fast, precocious horse that won his first three starts, Jukebox ran true to his pedigree being from the top class Stakes winning juvenile Jestatune, a daughter of Golden Slipper and leading speed influence Rory’s Jester, who of course is also the broodmare sire of Not A Single Doubt.

''He was electric as a 2YO - he was so natural and so fast and I just think that if he puts that into his stock then you'll have to hit the board. He had Group One speed and ability and he's the most precocious 2YO I have put a saddle on'' said Ciaron Maher. A half-sister to WA Group One winner Ihtsahymn, Jestatune is from another Stakes winning juvenile in Umatune, a daughter of Group One winning 2YO and leading sire Umatilla.

‘’Jukebox is what Australian racing is all about - an unbeaten 2YO with speed to burn and a pedigree dominated by colonial speed through Snitzel and Rory’s Jester - and he’s bred on the same cross as Not a Single Doubt.’’ – Aquis Farm CEO Shane McGrath.
