Wolfe wins with War Jeune


Sunday, 28 May 2017 - Geisel Stud graduate War Jeune was up for a fight in the Sky Racing Provincial Championship (1400m) at Belmont on Saturday.


The Steve Wolfe-trained gelding was under siege in the straight but kept lifting to score by a nose from Le Patron with another nose to Rikki Tikki Tavi.

“He got his head up right on the line and I thought we got beat,” jockey Shaun McGruddy admitted. “He had a sore back at the start of this prep and Steve took time until he was right.”


War Jeune (4g War Chant - Our Bella Jeune by Jeune) has won 4 of his 11 starts earning $147,320 after selling for $20,000 at the 2014 Perth Magic Millions. His dam is a three-quarter sister to LR Hareeba Stakes winner El Nino and she was bred back to War Chant last year.


Wolfe kept a share as did Geisel Park owner Eddie Rigg in a syndicate that includes John Sandford, Mick Brazier and breeder Ron Sayers. “I thought he had just hung on but I’ve been wrong a few times lately,” Wolfe said. “He’s a nice type and will get a mile as he gets older.”


Geisel Stud has catalogued weanlings by Therock & Snippetson and yearlings by Universal Ruler & Proart for the Perth Winter Sale on Sunday, June 25. The Proart filly is the first foal of Perth stakes performer Shezapro.
