The leading Mid-Atlantic sire for the past two years on the general and 2-year-old sires lists, Jump Start has had progeny earnings in excess of $4 million eight of the last nine years!
And talk about quality – he is the sire of 52 stakes winners, 17 graded/group winners, and 15 of his 105 stakes performers have Gr. 1 races on their resumes! Among his 17 stakes horses of 2016 were three-time stakes winner Disco Chick and South American group winners Icebox, DANCERA and LONG JUMP. His two-time Gr.1-winning son Idolo Porteno (Arg) was named Horse of the Year in Argentina in 2015 and was twice graded stakes-placed in three starts in the U.S. in 2016.
The top U.S. sire standing outside Kentucky by North American earnings in 2011, he is also the sire of track record-setting Gr.1-winning millionaire RAIL TRIP and additional millionaires PRAYER FOR RELIEF and PANTS ON FIRE.
In his three Pennsylvania-sired crops of racing age, he is the sire of 25 stakes performers – his seven stakes winners in his first PA-sired crop include $790,834-earner Miss Behaviour.
