Mating Suggestions

Jimmy Choux's pedigree indicates a strong affinity with many of our leading sirelines...

Jimmy Choux has a pedigree free of DANZIG and DANEHILL, his four potent lines of STAR KINGDOM through Bletchingly and Todman making him ideally suited. Jimmy Choux's high class stakes filly WHAT CHOUX WANT'S dam is by the Danzig-line sire VOLKSRAAD; with the Tony Pike-trained Bostonian and Chris Waller-trained Chaussure out of a Keeper mare, each rated as future stakes horses.

The STAR KINGDOM x TUDOR MINSTREL cross is highly desirable. One source of Tudor Minstrel blood comes by way of Rich Hill's sire PENTIRE, his own affinity with Star Kingdom is immediately obvious via PENNY GEM, PANTANI, TINSELTOWN, PENTASTIC and ZANNA etc.

MR PROSPECTOR blood is suited as four of Thorn Park's own stakes winning progeny feature him close-up. Jimmy Choux's own exciting juvenile MANOLO BLAHNIQ carried a Mr Prospector double up through MORE THAN READY and STRAIGHT STRIKE. His impressive Australian winner PARLAY VOUS carries a double of Mr Prospector through FLYING SPUR and STRAIGHT STRIKE; whilst his stakes performed filly SWEET VARDEN carries Mr Prospector through WOODMAN.  

SIR TRISTRAM appeals: 10 of Thorn Park's 24 stakes winners have a Sir Tristram presence close up, with VEYRON (Centro, Sir Tristram) and OCEAN PARK (Zabeel) good examples of the cross. Jimmy Choux's runners to-date to feature Sir Tristram include unbeaten juvenile JIMMY LINCOLN, unbeaten Australian three-year-old filly ADDISON, and the talented POKER FACE.

The success of the SADLER'S WELLS x NUREYEV nick is well documented, with linebreeding to his influential dam SPECIAL proving very successful. This linebreeding features in 8 of Thorn Park's own 24 stakes winners, including recent Australian Group 1 winner SUAVITO who carries a double of Nureyev plus a line of Sadler's Wells. Mares by ZABEEL, SAVABEEL, DARCI BRAHMA, MONTJEU, HIGH CHAPARRAL, STRAVINSKY, ENCOSTA DE LAGO, SHINKO KING, CARNEGIE, RIP VAN WINKLE, IFFRAAJ, THEWAYYOUARE offer this linebreeding opportunity.

Jimmy Choux's electric acceleration is typical of the best Nureyev sire-line progeny, and this quality is often reinforced by LAST TYCOON. Thorn Park's Australian flagbearer CENTENNIAL PARK is out of a Last Tycoon mare. This cross involves linebreeding to the legendary mare BEST IN SHOW, so O'REILLY and TOWKAY mares also appeal. It is worth noting that Mick Price's highly rated HEPTAGON is by Jimmy Choux out of an O'Reilly mare.

Any mating featuring Spinning World with Sadler's Wells or Last Tycoon is linebreeding to the great mare LALUN. Other sources of Lalun are Never Bend or Bold Reason and these bloodlines are present in VOLKSRAAD, STRAIGHT STRIKE, DESERT SUN, CAPE CROSS and SOUND REASON.
