Justin’s Jamming With The Duke

Gr2 Cape Merchants next for the 3yo

While there is plenty of in-house debate over whether he is a pure sprinter or could go further, Duke Of Marmalade’s smart Cape Nursery winning son We’re Jamming scored his third feature success over the Hollywoodbets Kenilworth 1200m strip at the sunny Southern Suburbs venue on Saturday.

It’s a pleasant poser to be faced for owners Greg Bortz and Gina Goldsmith who purchased We’re Jamming second hand out of the Piet Steyn yard earlier this year.

Discounting his last start, when failing to show behind the exciting Charles Dickens in the Gr2 Cape Classic, We’re Jamming has been the veritable model of consistency and the R15 000 CTS Farm Sale graduate has now won 3 races with 4 places from 8 starts and stakes of R621 400.

Allowed to relax early as Trompie led the charge, We’re Jamming (17-2) powered home under the high-riding Richard Fourie to give the Snaith team another winner as he withstood a late challenge from Street Outlaw (33-1) to win by three quarters of a length in a time of 71,21 secs.

Trompie (11-10) plodded on for third, with the 15-10 favourite Hitthemhardsunshine failing to go on with his challenge down the rail, to finish out of the money.

The second leg of a feature double on the day for top breeders Ridgemont Highlands, We’re Jamming is the third foal of the one-time winner Maidstone (Windrush) and sired by the deceased Drakenstein Champion Duke Of Marmalade.

He is likely to be targetted at the Gr2 Cape Merchants next month.
