Jersey Rocs is a big, strong two-year-old colt by Twilight Son and out of the mare, Maybride.
Jersey Rocs has a very fast pedigree, which is packed with quick Black Type horses.
Jersey Rocs is sired by Group 1 winning sprinter Twilight Son, who has produced top draw Group and Listed winning and placed sprinters such as Aria Importante, Twilight Calls, Twilight Jet, Twilight Spinner and Wicklow to name but a few.His dam, Maybride, is a Cheveley Park mare and a daughter of Mayson, who has also produced top class sprinting talent. Maybride reached an official rating of 92 at her best and won 25% of her starts over 6f on the turf.
She is a full sister to Group 3 placed sprinter Rosebride, who won 2 of her 7 starts and finished 2nd on three other occasions.Based on his pedigree Jersey Rocs ought to handle anything from good to heavy ground, which would make him incredibly versatile and give his owners the chance to see plenty of him.
He caught the eye of McKeever Bloodstock and Charlie Hills at the Goffs Orby Sale in 2022, who then offered him to Old Gold Racing.
It was a particularly good sign that his trainer, Charlie Hills, has said “I want to keep a third in the horse because what I’ve seen of him since September I really like and I think he’s got a really nice future.”Mr Hills also informed us that he thinks “this horse should improve with age, I think he’ll be a tremendously exciting horse to be involved with. He’s very sound, looks like he’s got a good mind and he’s got a good constitution as well so I think he’ll take his racing really well.”
Jersey Rocs is being prepared for a race very soon and his performance will determine the plan going forward. Everything he has done in training so far has been very encouraging and we’re therefore expecting a big first run.
This lad is sure to give owners a thrill with his future set in the sprinting division!
