Jet Away continues to upgrade his mares and perform well beyond opportunity. His performance on the racecourse and the sales ring is the best amongst his peers that retired to stud in 2015. Support for Jet Away’s future crops is sure to be strong with his book sizes remaining high but with a significant increase in mare quality.
Jet Away covered over 260 mares in 2020 including the likes of Gilt Ridden, the dam of top performer and Cheltenham Gold Cup winner Johns Spirit. With over 300 mares booked to Jet Away this season, including the likes of Grade 1 winner Laurina, his future as a leading National Hunt sire is all but certain.
