Plane flies to
victory for Jet Master

Thursday: Al Quoz Sprint (Group 3), Nad Al Sheba

J J THE JET PLANE (g Jet Master - Majestic Guest)

J J THE Jet Plane put a disappointing debut on dirt behind him in fine style on Thursday when taking the feature sprint on turf at Nad Al Sheba comfortably by one and a quarter lengths from Hatta Fort.

The Mike de Kock-trained gelding is one of eight Group 1 winners by the 2000 South African Horse of the Year and champion sire Jet Master.

The son of Rakeen - himself a Northern Dancer half-brother to Rahy and Singspiel - has wasted little time in accumulating an impressive profile at stud. From five crops of racing age, he is already the sire of eight Group 1 winners including this season's Queen's Plate hero Pocket Power and the Cape Derby winner Floatyourboat.

Bred by Mrs P. J. Devine in South Africa, J J The Jet Plane is out of Majestic Guest.

As well as J J The Jet Plane, the unraced daughter of Northern Guest is responsible for the stakes-placed pair Majestic Jet, also by Jet Master, and Guest Among Men, by Among Men.
