Grade 1 winner Jersey Town will stand the 2019 breeding season at Daehling Ranch Thoroughbreds, near Elk Grove, Calif. as the property of Charles Fipke, for a fee of $3,000, live foal guaranteed.
The 11-year-old son of Speightstown out of multiple G1 winner Jersey Girl entered stud at Darby Dan Farm in Kentucky before moving to Road's End Farm in British Columbia for the 2018 breeding season, where he was one of Canada's leading general sires in 2018 with current-year progeny earnings of more than $2 million.
A G1 winner of $819,668, the Fipke homebred finished first, second, or third in 17 of 21 starts and won or placed in nine graded stakes, defeating ten G1 winners. He earned a 111 Beyer while defeating four G1 winners in his G1 Cigar Mile Handicap victory; defeated Preakness Stakes winner Shackleford and G1 winners To Honor and Serve and Tapizar in the G2 Kelso Handicap at Belmont Park; and twice placed in the G1 Forego Handicap at Saratoga.
“Mr Fipke has foals by Jersey Town from some top mares still to come and will be supporting the horse in California as well, so Jersey Town represents a great opportunity for breeders to participate in a stallion with a lot of future upside,” said Sid Fernando, president of Werk Thoroughbred Consultants, Inc., and an advisor to Fipke.
Jersey Town's first foals are 4-year-olds of 2018, and he has already sired earners of more than $3.6 million and nine stakes horses from his first two crops race, led by G1 winner Bee Jersey. Earlier this year Bee Jersey earned a 109 Beyer Speed Figure while winning the 2018 G1 Runhappy Metropolitan Handicap in a sizzling 1:33.13. Jersey Town's sales yearlings have averaged more than $32,000 with individuals for up to $500,000, with 2-year-olds averaging over $64,000 and individuals selling for up to $250,000.
