Union Jackson Retired to Sequel New York


Union Jackson | Coady

Two-time stakes winner and 'TDN Rising Star' Union Jackson (Curlin–Hot Dixie Chick, by Dixie Union) has been retired from racing and will stand the 2018 breeding season at Sequel Stallions, Hudson, New York as a Sequel Stallions/Stonestreet Stables venture. He will stand his first season at a fee of $5,000.

Union Jackson, bred in Kentucky by Barbara Banke's Grace Thoroughbred Holdings LLC , was campaigned by Banke's Stonestreet Stables LLC, and trained throughout his career by Steve Asmussen. Union Jackson is the first foal out of 2009 GI Spinaway S. heroine Hot Dixie Chick, a half-sister to this year's GI Kentucky Derby winner Always Dreaming (Bodemeister). Union Jackson posted a career record of 11-6-1-2 and earnings of $273,874.

Union Jackson is an outstanding individual from the physical standpoint, and I fell in love with him when I saw him,” Sequel Stallions principal Becky Thomas said.

Stonestreet owner Barbara Banke added, “Union Jackson was a horse that we have always though very highly of. Stonestreet very much believes in Union Jackson, and we will be strongly supporting him at stud.”
