He was New Zealand Horse Of The Year and Champion Australasian three year old, no stallion currently standing in New Zealand has won more Group Ones than Jimmy Choux.
23 of his 26 career starts were black type races with a staggering 15 Group One races. He won a total of 12 races from 800m to 2400m, including five Group Ones and placing a further five times in Group Ones earning over $3.6 million.
He had the natural speed to win over 800m at two, the talent to beat Australasian’s best at three and the toughness to win another two Group Ones at four, not to mention a 2 nd in the Cox Plate.
“He’s by a champion sire and his dam is by a champion broodmare sire. He has four lines of Star Kingdom in his first six generations, which is now a rarity in Australasian breeding,”.
“He was an outstanding racehorse with a great physique so he’s got absolutely everything in his favour to make a successful stallion.” Studmaster John Thompson said.
He served a high quality book of 110 mares in 2012, inlcuding the likes of Bankside Belle, Beejay Belle, Shadow Ray and Ruqqaya.
