Snitzel x Jestatune (by Rory's Jester)
Standing at Hunter Valley, NSW
Brilliant Group winning sprinting son of Snitzel.
Undefeated in two starts as a juvenile, the Ciaron Maher trained colt was a dominant winner of the $250,000 Listed Inglis Premier (1200m) and returned in the spring to win the stallion-making Group III MRC Vain Stakes (1100m).
In the Vain Stakes Jukebox produced a race-best sectional for the final 200m and it was this blistering turn of foot that had always set him apart from the rest.
Jukebox racked up a further three Group placings in a brief career of just eight starts, finishing second to Group I winning filly Catchy in the Group II VRC Danehill Stakes (1200m) and second to another outstanding filly in Formality in the Group III MRC Blue Sapphire Stakes (1200m).
A naturally fast, precocious horse that won his first three starts, Jukebox ran true to his pedigree being from the top class Stakes winning juvenile Jestatune, a daughter of Golden Slipper and leading speed influence Rory’s Jester, who of course is also the broodmare sire of Not A Single Doubt.
A half-sister to WA Group I winner Ihtsahymn, Jestatune is from another Stakes winning juvenile in Umatune, a daughter of Group I winning 2YO and leading sire Umatilla.
An affordable son of reigning Champion Sire Snitzel from a power packed speed family, Jukebox is sure to strike a tune with breeders looking for precocity, speed and a great physique.

“He was a gun 2YO and the best 2YO we have had; early, very sharp and natural. We look forward to training his progeny in the future.”
