PROGENY OF YOUNG GLENLOGAN SIRE TURBO JET CHARGED

ANOTHER stride and D’Jet, a representative of the first crop of the Glenlogan Park, Innisplain, Qld based Flying Spur sire Jet Spur, most likely would have been the outright winner of the juvenile event on Saturday’s Eagle Farm program.

D’Jet, a gelding bred by Bannercroft Pty Ltd, Qld using the smart Dehere race filly D’Flyer, sold in Sydney as a weanling.

On Saturday D’Jet produced a turbo jet charged finish that has typified the small number Jet Spur progeny seen out to date, bursting out of the wruck to win.

Many of the multitude who gathered at the Gold Coast for the Magic Millions $4.6million race day on January 9 sensed they were witnessing the making of a good racehorse and sire when the Helen Page trained Jet Spur colt Power of Ed lived up to his name and powered his way to a dominant win in the $100,000 Magic Millions 2YO Plate.

It was an effort that suggested he could have been a force in the $2million 2YO Classic later in the afternoon if he had got into the field. He had motored home from fifth on the turn when successful by 2.3 lengths at the Gold Coast on debut on December 19.

Power of Ed, D’Jet and True Blue Angel are among five winners already on the board for Jet Spur, also the source of four other money earners. He is equal leading first season by winners with Arrowfield stud’s Redoute’s Choice sire Snitzel and second to him on earnings.

The precociousness and good finishing speed of the Jet Spur progeny makes him one of the most fancied contenders for the 2009-10 first season juvenile title.

Although Jet Spur is by the Arrowfield based Danehill Golden Slipper winner and champion Australian sire Flying Spur, he is Queensland bred, coming off Ron Gilbert’s quality breeding farm, the Highgrove stud at Westbrook near Toowoomba.
