Jersey Town

by Alan Porter - Jersey Town is a grade one winning miler by the red-hot sire and Champion Sprinter Speightstown, out of the brilliant three-time grade one winner Jersey Girl.

Jersey Town appeals as a very exciting prospect for mares from the Deputy Minister branch of the Northern Dancer line. Not only has his sire enjoyed outstanding success with mares from this line, but his broodmare sire, Belong to Me, is out of a mare by Exclusive Native, who comes from the immediate family of Deputy Minister. Speightstown’s Travers Stakes (gr. I) hero Golden Ticket is out of a mare by Deputy Minister himself. He has grade one winning millionaire Haynesfield from a daughter of Tejabo, and stakes winners out of a mares by Silver Deputy and his son, Archers Bay, French Deputy and War Deputy. Other candidates from the Deputy Minister line include Awesome Again, Dehere, Deputy Commander, Forest Camp, Salt Lake, Touch Gold, Graeme Hall, Ghostzapper and Posse.

Speightstown has also enjoyed success when crossed over mares descending from Northern Dancer through the closely related Nureyev and Sadler’s Wells. Speightstown’s group one winner Lord Shanakill is out of a mare by Nureyev son, Theatrical, with other sources of that line including Atticus, Spinning World and Stravinsky. From a mare by Sadler’s Wells son, El Prado, Speightstown has sired the prolific stakes winner Essence Hit Man, and this suggests trying mares by Medaglia d’Oro, Kitten’s Joy and Artie Schiller. There is also a multiple stakes winner by Speightstown out of a mare by Louis Quatorze (a son of Sovereign Dancer). Speightstown is out of a mare by Storm Cat, but has already sired two stakes winners, including the brilliantly-fast Bridgetown (dam by Tabasco Cat) out of Storm Cat line mares, inviting daughters of such as Giant’s Causeway, Forest Wildcat, Forestry, Hennessy – and his son, Johannesburg – Stormy Atlantic, Stormin Fever, Tale of the Cat, Harlan’s Holiday, Bernstein Mountain Cat, Tactical Cat and Sir Cat. The Gone West line has done well with mares descending from Northern Dancer through Dixieland Band (sire of Dixie Union), and it could also be interesting to introduce Nijinsky II through Royal Academy, a close relative to Storm Cat, and himself broodmare sire of a group one winner by a son of Gone West.

Speightstown is unusual for a Gone West line stallion in that he is beginning to forge a strong affinity for mares from the Seattle Slew. He has two stakes winners, one graded out of mares by A. P. Indy. Jersey Town is from a family that has worked well with A.P. Indy son, Pulpit, and that strain could also be introduced through Tapit and Sky Mesa, while other sources of A.P. Indy include Malibu Moon, Mineshaft, Bernardini, Old Trieste and Jump Start. Speightstown has also sired stakes winners out of mares descending from Seattle Slew through Capote (sire of Boston Harbor and Mayakovsky) and Houston, and he also has graded winner Sum of the Parts out of a mare by Slew’s Royalty.

Out of mares from the Turn-to line, Speightstown has sired the grade one winning Poseidon’s Warrior from a daughter of Smarten. From the Hail to Reason branch of Turn-to, Speightstown has a stakes winner out of a mare by Saint Ballado (by Halo) sire of Saint Liam, Captain Bodgit, Sweetsouthernsaint and Yankee Victor, and a brother to Devil’s Bag (sire of Devil His Due). Speightstown has also enjoyed success with the Roberto branch of Hail to Reason, siring stakes winners out of mares by Red Ransom and Prized (by Kris S., also sire of Arch, Rock Hard Ten and You and I), encouraging trying mares by other sons of Roberto such as Dynaformer, Silver Hawk and Lear Fan.

Speightstown is sire of a stakes winner out of a mare by Relaunch and another by that horse’s son, Honour and Glory, which would suggest mares by other stallions from that line, such as daughters of Skywalker, Bertrando, Officer, Cee’s Tizzy and Tiznow. Jersey Town carries In Reality – the sire of Relaunch – through Valid Appeal, but it could be worth duplicating that horse through Valid Wager (a brother to the granddam of Jersey Town) and Valid Expectations (a three-quarters brother to the granddam of Jersey Town).

Out of mares from the Blushing Groom line, Speightstown has stakes winners out of mares by Peaks and Valleys and his sire Mt. Livermore (also sire of Orientate and Housebuster), and a stakes winner out of a mare Rainbow Quest, a horse bred on similar line to Rahy.

Speightstown’s graded winner Despite The Odds is out of a mare by Cozzene (sire of Alphabet Soup and Mizzen Mast), which also invites trying Cozzene’s sire Caro through In Excess and Indian Charlie, who are both broodmare sires of Gone West line stakes winners.

Speightstown also has the very fast multiple graded stakes winner Munnings out of a mare by Holy Bull. Out of mares from the Ribot line he is sire of grade one winner Mona de Momma from a daughter of Linkage (by Hoist the Flag), and he has a stakes winner out of a mare by Colonial Affair (by Pleasant Colony, sire of Pleasantly Perfect, who looks particularly interesting here, and Pleasant Tap), and his English group winning two-year-old, Bapak Chinta is out of a mare by Maria’ s Mon.
