JUMP START stakes winners at both ends of the spectrum

MissBAugust was hot, but September has been even hotter for JUMP START, who got two new stakes winners in the first two days of the month.

JUMP START’s juvenile daughter MISS BEHAVIOUR ignored her seven rivals in Monmouth Park’s time-honored Sorority S. on Sunday, Sept. 1, charging home by a widening eight and a quarter lengths in only her second start. The Cal MacWilliam and Neil Teitelbaum homebred easily won her debut at Parx in July over Gracer (who came back to win impressively at Saratoga next out), and once again showcased her tremendous talent with the dominating stakes score. “She just has so much natural speed,” said her winning rider, Garry Cruise.

Trained by Phil Schoenthal, MISS BEHAVIOUR was bred in Pennsylvania out of the Successful Appeal mare Successful Romance and is a member of JUMP START’s first Pennsylvania-sired crop.

MISS BEHAVIOUR found her stride early - CRY CRY CRY had to wait a bit longer, but now is on a tear! JUMP START’s 7-year-old daughter increased her win streak to four with her Ladies Express Stakes win at Hastings on Monday, Sept. 2.


Whieldon Thoroughbreds’ bay mare bided her time early and swooped down the stretch late to get up in the final strides, increasing her lifetime mark to 12 wins in 30 starts. The Rosann Anderson trainee recorded a solid final time of 1:10.18 for six furlongs.

JUMP START currently ranks as the leading active juvenile sire in the Northeast and is tied for the leading active sire in the region by number of stakes winners, with eight to date in 2013. That boosts is total number of stakes winners from eight crops to race to 37, with at least one in every crop. And they prove they can go, and go, and go!
