Jukebox Wins (R) Listed Inglis 2YO Premier
At Caulfield in Melbourne, Arrowfield Stud's high profile Gr1-winning stallion Snitzel (Redoute's Choice-Snippets' Lass, by Snippets) celebrated a Restricted black-type success when 2YO colt Jukebox (Snitzel-Jestatune, by Rory's Jester) scored by 2-lengths for trainer Ciaron Maher in the $250,000 Restricted Listed Inglis 2YO Premier (1200m), over fellow colts Coppergate (Helmet-Umoya, by Nashwan) and Perast (Snitzel-Thousand Veils, by Zabeel). A $200,000 Inglis Easter yearling consigned by Blue Gum Farm, Jukebox took his record to 2 wins from 2 starts for $150,150 earnings. He is currently on the second line of betting at $8 for the $1.5 million Gr1 Blue Diamond Stakes (1200m) at Caulfield on 25 February. "He's always been our benchmark two-year-old. He's very professional and very natural," Maher told Racing.com. "Fitness wise he improved out of his first run, but I still think there's a bit of improvement there also." He added: "It's three weeks into the Diamond which is a nice spacing."
