Joan's A Jett wins on debut 

 

Joan’s A Jett won impressively on debut at Seymour yesterday for trainer Mark Kavanagh.

“She was a little slow away and settled towards the back of the field but showing just how good she is, her jockey Craig Robertson was able to get her off the fence, come out wide and finish off strongly to win," said Mark.

Mark knew he had a talented filly on his hands and couldn’t be more thankful to her breeders Brent and Cherry Taylor of Trelawney Stud in New Zealand who sent her over earlier this year.  

“Brent and Cherry sent her over to help rebuild the stable, they did some work with her early to make sure that she was up to coming to Australia and we put a syndicate of people together to race her.”

One of the owners is Racing.com tipster Warren Huntley (and his wife Leanne) who was on course yesterday to watch her win and couldn't be happier with the run.

Sired by the Group 1 winning son of Fastnet Rock, Rock ‘n’ Pop and out of the Group 2 winning mare Luna Tudor, Joan’s A Jett is a half-sister to Group 1 winning mare Allez Wonder suggesting she will be better over more ground.  

When asked where to next, Mark said, “I’ll probably give her a couple more runs and see where she takes us. I believe she will improve as we step her up to some longer distances. Her pedigree suggests she will be better suited at distances of 1600m – 2000m or even further as her mother won over 3200m.”

Mark has three older horses - Atlantic City, Battlecamp and Bord de Gain - running at Flemington on Saturday, the remaining horses in the stable are all young and should step out in the coming months.

"Joan’s A Jett is one of many talented up and coming horses in the stable, I’m really excited about the next couple of months.”

It may have been a quiet Spring, but Kavanagh Racing’s team has been set for the Summer period. With a lot of inexperienced young horses set to race in the next few months the stable is happy with their decision to bypass the Spring and take advantage of the excellent pastures and give their horses a little for time, and the way the horses have developed is testament to the fact they made the right move.
