“The move provides our customers and all local breeders with the opportunity to breed to a Triple Gr1 winner with movie star good looks, and who is a proven sire of group winning progeny, at a low price on a live foal basis.”

Triple G1 winner, and prolific source of winners, Jackson has been relocated to the Heversham Park Stud for the 2021 breeding season.

The blue blooded son of Dynasty, whose sire sons continue to impress, will join the likes of Moofeed and Wings Of Desire at Heversham.

Heversham’s Nigel Riley is delighted with his new acquisition, saying, “The move provides our customers and all local breeders with the opportunity to breed to a Triple Gr1 winner with movie star good looks, and who is a proven sire of group winning progeny, at a low price on a live foal basis. We at Heversham Park will also be supporting Jackson with our own mares.”

Ridgemont’s Craig Kieswetter said that his team was always dynamically assessing the need to utilise resources where they would achieve optimum potential, and says of the move, “Jackson is a favourite on the farm and we are really sorry to see him go. He possesses the handsome athletic physique, the race record and the blood – in fact everything required to make it as a stallion – and we wish Nigel and his team everything of the very best. It’s a privilege to assist them in raising their profile and doing our bit for racing in that region while the ownership of Jackson remains with the syndicate and Ridgemont Highlands.”

One of his outstanding sire’s very best sons, and from the same family as outstanding sire Smart Strike, Jackson won six of his 17 starts and emulated Dynasty himself by landing both the G1 Cape Derby and G1 Daily News 2000.

Also victorious in the G1 Champions Cup, and twice second in the G1 L’Ormarins Queen’s Plate, Jackson earned over R2.366 million during a career which saw him win or place in ten graded or listed features.

Since retiring to stud, Jackson (who was bred by Highlands) has supplied a host of above average winners headed by G3 Poinsettia Stakes/G3 Prix Du Cap winner Pretty Young Thing, Stormsvlei Stakes queen Eva Eileen, G1 filly Can You Feel It, and the likes of Flame Tree, Heaven’s Embrace, and Mr Crumford.

His two-year-old daughter Kailene caught the eye when finishing second, while conceding the winner weight, in Saturday’s Listed The Lighthouse Foundation Devon Air Stakes and she looks a filly with a very bright future ahead of her.

Jackson, a full-brother to G3 Byerley Turk winner Heartland and half-brother to smart sprinter Jade Bay, is out of the mare Moonlight Prairie -whose champion sire Cozzene also ranks as the dam of outstanding sire and broodmare sire Pivotal.
