Double the Success for Spendthrift's Jimmy Creed

Media Release - Tuesday September 24

Spendthrift Australia's shuttle sire Jimmy Creed (USA) has had a steady stream of winners since his first crop stepped onto the racetrack, with the son of champion sire Distorted Humor now boasting 75% winners to runners.

Jimmy CreedHis impressive figures were only strengthened over the weekend as nine Stakes winners quickly jumped to 11 Stakes winners in one day.

King Jack (USA) (Jimmy Creed {USA}), a 3 1/4-length debut winner at Santa Anita, wore down fellow California invader Landeskog to take out the Group 2 Gallant Bob Stakes at Parx Racing.

"I thought jockey Joel Rosario had him placed perfectly," trainer Jerry Hollendorfer said. "A very fast time. We thought the seven furlongs would fit this horse very well and it seemed like it did."

The star three-year-old colt's record consists of three wins, and a second placing at black-type level, from just four starts.

Soon after Jimmy Creed got his 10th Stakes winner on the board, Meadow Dance (USA) (Jimmy Creed {USA}) scored her fourth win and first at Stakes level in the Listed Weathervane Stakes and Laurel Park.

Like King Jack, Meadow Dance has never finished out of the top three in her seven starts, including a third placing in the Group 1 Alcibiades Stakes at Keeneland

Jimmy Creed stands for $8,800 inc. GST, this current season he has had two winners for three runners to date in Australia. We expect to see those numbers increase down here with larger crop sizes coming through.
