Hi Calypso's half-brother
gets off the mark

JEDI, a half-brother to Park Hill Stakes heroine Hi Calypso, broke his maiden at the third attempt when winning the 1m maiden for colts and geldings at Nottingham on Wednesday.

A son of Pivotal, Jedi is by a stallion more associated with speed than Hi Calypso, who is by In The Wings, and Warringah, his Galileo half-brother who contested this year's St. Leger.

All three siblings have been campaigned by their owner-breeder, Philip Newton, and trained by Sir Michael Stoute.

Their dam, the nine-year-old Gulch mare Threefold, was also owned by Newton and trained by Stoute. She was purchased by Mags O'Toole for $145,000 at the Keeneland yearling sales, and subsequently won a maiden on her debut at three, before running well in three Listed races over 1m2f.

Threefold's dam, Trivita, is a half-sister to Prix Saint-Alary winner Treble and to the dam of Haydock Sprint Cup winner Tamarisk.
