Freshman Sire Jungle Cat Off The Mark At Musselburgh

Jungle Cat


Former Kildangan Stud resident Jungle Cat (Ire) (Iffraaj {GB}) became the latest freshman off the mark when the Karl Burke-trained newcomer Miss Jungle Cat (GB), a 60,000gns Tattersalls Somerville yearling, pounced late to snag Saturday's Betway EBF Novice S. going a shade over five furlongs at Musselburgh. In fourth and under pressure at halfway, the 16-5 chance refused to wilt at the business end and kept on relentlessly under a continued drive to deny Explicit (Ire) (Expert Eye {GB}) by 1 1/4 lengths inside the final 100 yards.

Miss Jungle Cat is the ninth of 10 foals and fifth scorer out of a winning half-sister to G3 Prix Saint-Romain scorer Eco Friendly (GB) (Sabrehill). Her second dam is G3 Goldene Peitsche victrix Flower Girl (GB) (Pharly {Fr}). The February-foaled bay is kin to Listed Harry Rosebery S. third Umneyati (GB) (Iffraaj {GB}) and a yearling filly by Havana Gold (Ire).
