First Foals For Jimmy Choux

Wednesday, 21st August 2013

The first foals of former New Zealand Horse of the Year Jimmy Choux (Thorn Park-Cierzo, by Centaine) have arrived at Waikato's Rich Hill Stud, reports NZ Racing Desk. The stud has thus far welcomed a son and daughter of the 5-time Gr1 winner. "His two foals born so far are remarkably similar," commented stud principal John Thompson. "They are both well-balanced bays with quality and a very athletic appearance. It is an exciting time for us as not many farms get to stand a champion Australasian racehorse." Jimmy Choux, whose elite victories came in the NZ 2,000 Guineas, NZ Derby, Rosehill Guineas, Hawke's Bay Spring Classic & Hawke's Bay Windsor Park Plate, was well-received in his first year at stud covering a quality book of 110 mares. His 2013 service fee is NZ$10,000 + gst with a live foal guarantee.
