Multiple Group 1 winning sprinter

Jungle Cat is a genuinely elite, multiple Group 1 winning sprinter with a pedigree perfectly suited to the genetics of our mare population. He was a high class 2yo performer and ultimately an outstanding straight course sprinter winning the Group 1 Al Quoz Sprint in Dubai and placing a close 3rd in the Group 1 Darley Sprint at weight for age over 1200m at Flemington. Jungle Cat was able to land the Group 1 Sir Rupert Clarke Stakes at Caulfield under the top weight of 58kg. Along with his win in Dubai where he vanquished subsequent Breeder’s Cup Sprint winner Stormy Liberal, this performance had ratings analysts in awe as he was able to concede weight and deliver a beating to some of Australia’s leading performers.

Sire

Iffraaj is a proven elite sire in both hemispheres with 9 Group 1 winners and counting including Jungle Cat, Ribchester, Gingernuts, Jon Snow and Turn Me Loose. Sire of 23 juvenile winners in season 2018, Iffraaj is an emerging prepotent influence with his French champion 2YO Wootton Basset already the sire of triple Group 1winning European champion Almanzor, and he is dam-sire of multiple Group 1 winning New Zealand champion 2YO Melody Belle.

Dam

Mike’s Wildcat is a descendant of breed-shaping influence Storm Cat. Jungle Cat combines two of the world’s great sirelines of Mr Prospector and Storm Cat in a pedigree free of Danehill and Danzig.

QTIS Stallion

In an era of high service fees rendering genuine quality stallions beyond the reach of many breeders, recent history casts a stallion with the profile of Jungle Cat in a new light. His record is uncannily similar to a recent success story of Queensland breeding in Spirit Of Boom.
