Available to stand at stud

At Doomben in Brisbane, recently relocated multipl Gr1-winning stallion Jimmy Choux (Thorn Park-Cierzo, by Centaine) celebrated a second successive Gr1 triumph when 4YO gelding The Bostonian (Jimmy Choux-Keepa Cheval, by Keeper) made it back-to-back big race wins with an unequivocal 0.8-length success in the $700,000 Gr1 Kingsford-Smith Cup (1300m) over 5YO mare Princess Posh and favoured 4YO gelding Trekking. The additional 100m after his surprise Gr1 Doomben 10,000 victory (1200m) made no difference to kiwi raider The Bostonian. Quickly on the back of the speed from the jump and, berthed comfortably in fourth place, he was all too easily able to take command for trainer William Pike at the rediculously generous odds of $10. Withdrawn from the 2016 NZB NYSS on the advice of Trelawney’s Brent Taylor, owner David Archer now has a millionaire earner with plenty of upside still to come. Meanwhile, WA’s Rosalee Stud must be doing cartwheels after acquiring New Zealand Horse of the Year, The Bostonian’s sire Jimmy Choux, to stand at their property just before the Queensland Winter Racing Carnival got underway. It’s a fair bet the Serpentine-based stud farm can expect a busy season ahead.
