Bred & owned by Winston Chow (HK)

TIMELINE..

04-03-20 Did the hot pace into a headwind over 1400m just confirm Jonathan’s stamina limitations? From gate 11 out of 12 he got caught wide up with the pace and no cover all the way, and then turning for home he took the lead unextended and looked promising.. for about 150m, and then ran out of puff. The 3 horses in the last 3 positions on the turn powered through to take the top 3 positions at the finish and the pacemaker tailed off. Jonathan is conformed like a sprinter, he moves like a sprinter with sprinter speed, and his best form is over sprints.. and this true run 14 appears to have just confirmed it.


28-02-20 Jonathan puts in a peak effort over 1km first run back after a 3 month break.

Jonathan this morning.. he's in optimum condition after 5 races in 6½ weeks, super sound and raring to go again. He's just had his AHS I vac + there's no suitable races for him until month end, where we're aiming him at a MR68 1km on the poly.
