Lot 117 – Captain’s Lullaby x Jackson
“Movie Star Looks”
JACKSON COLT ONE FOR THE SHORT-LIST
One of the nicest colts in the draft is lot 117, a colt whose pedigree combines classic influence with precocity and speed.
As yet unnamed this athletic bay colt is by Jackson, a triple Gr.1 winning son of four times Equus Outstanding Stallion Dynasty. Himself a classic winner, Jackson banked over R2 million during a career which saw him win all of the Gr.1 Investec Cape Derby (over dual Horse Of The Year Variety Club), Gr.1 Daily News 2000 and Gr.1 Champions Cup. One of the very best horses of his generation, the impeccably bred Jackson hails from the same family as outstanding US champion sire Smart Strike.
Jackson has made a superb start to his stud career, with his early 2yo winners this season including Bountiful Strength, Mr Crumford, Bonaire and G1 Allan Robertson contender Beat It. With a large number of well bred youngsters yet to race, Jackson looks on track for a bright future at stud.
Captain’s Lullaby is herself impeccably bred being a daughter of champion sire Captain Al she is and half-sister to the Dean Kannemeyer trained Gr.3 Byerley Turk hero Mambo Mime, a close second in the recent Listed Jet Master Stakes. Mambo Mime, who previously contested both the Gr.1 Vodacom Durban July and Gr.1 Sun Met, has already banked in excess of R720 000!
Captain’s Lullaby is also a half-sister to the smart stakes placed five time winner Muamba, herself dam of speedy Gr.2 SA Fillies Nursery third Varumba. The Jackson colt’s second dam, bred in the USA, is the beautifully bred Murmuration –a daughter of leading sire and French Gr.1 winner Miswaki and champion racemare Susurration.
Miswaki, whose offspring won such races as the Prix de l’Arc de Triomphe, Breeders’ Cup Classic and Japan Cup, is a truly exceptional broodmare sire, whose daughters have produced well over 140 stakes winners.
Among the outstanding horses produced by Miswaki mares is the world’s premier sire, and Epsom Derby winner, Galileo and the latter’s outstanding, six time Gr.1 winning half-brother Sea The Stars. Remarkably, both Galileo and Sea The Stars have sired Investec Derby winners!
The classically bred Jackson is from the very same family as outstanding sire and broodmare sire Red Ransom –whose runners include Dubai World Cup hero Electrocutionist and Oaks winner Casual Look. This colt has been bred on a similar cross to the one that produced Gr.1 winners Shadow Dancing, Heir Apparent and Athina.
Captain Al as a broodmare sire has already produced 12 stakes winners including Gr.1 winners Same Jurisdiction, Gunner and Potent Power.
