Fifth first crop winner for Jackson | Cape Breeders Club

Fifth first crop winner for Jackson

15th Jul 2018

Highlands Stud part of Ridgemont’s well performed, and homebred, young stallion Jackson has made a very smart start with his first 2yos this season and the son of Dynasty enjoyed further success this weekend when his son Action Jackson made a winning debut at Borrowdale.


Bred by Ian Longmore (who had such success with his sire), Action Jackson was given a strong ride by jockey Jarryd Penny to get and score a neck victory over 1000m on Republic Day Cup last Saturday.

The Penny Fisher trained colt, winning in open company, was produced by the Jet Master mare Action Replay.

Action Jackson continued the pleasing start that his triple G1 winning sire has made this season.

To date, Jackson’s first crop performers include G2 Golden Slipper third Can You Feel It, Cape feature race contender Mr Crumford, and promising G1 Allan Robertson contender Beat It.

This is a very promising start for a stallion who never raced at two!

Dynasty-the sire of Jackson

The handsome Jackson, one of the very best sons of four times Equus Outstanding Stallion Dynasty currently at stud, rated as one of the best of his generation, with Jackson’s six victories including all of the G1 Investec Cape Derby (over subsequent dual Horse Of The Year Variety Club), G1 Daily News 2000 (over July winner and current Leading First Crop Sire Pomodoro) and the G1 Champions Cup.

From the family of US champion sire Smart Strike, and G1 sires Sky Classic, Sail From Seattle and Strike Smartly, former sales topper Jackson has 18 lots on offer at the 2018 National Two Year Old Sale. His draft includes a colt out of four time stakes winner Scented Ash (Lot 36), a ¾ sister to six time Dynasty sired stakes winner Sammy Jo (Lot 78), and a filly out of the stakes winning Var mare Wishful Eye (Lot 131).
