The family

Southway Queen raced in English Points for 3 seasons winning twice, placed several times prior to performing with credit in handicap hurdles, similarly winning once and placed several times.

Grand-dam Nearly A Score won a Point and showed fair form over fences without winning but was Grade 2 placed twice. The dam of 2 foals - both winners - with Southway Star (full sister to Southway Queen) displaying fair form in her 4 hurdle and 7 chase victories.

The 3rd dam, Boherash, was also a winner with a bumper and hurdle to her credit.

This gelding is a first foal and the family includes 2019 Cheltenham Festival winner Beware The Bear.

About the sire

Jet Away (bay h born 2007) raced for 3 seasons for Henry Cecil before moving for a final season when a 6yr-old to Australia. A big, useful looking type on the racecourse, he achieved a Timeform rating of 118. He won a Listed event over 10 furlongs at Goodwood and a Group 3 handicap also over 10 furlongs at Caulfield in Australia.

He is a 3 parts brother to Champion Sire Dansili, and since 2015 he has stood for a modest fee at Arctic Tack Stud in Ireland. His oldest stock turned 4 in 2020, so not really enough time to make a mark Under Rules but he has been hitting the headlines in the Irish Point field. A handful of winners already from very few runners has raised his profile considerably.
At the 2020 NH Store Sales his progeny were all the rage, attracting prices up to €50,000.

And look out for February '20 Irish Point winner Brandy Love who was sold for €200k shortly afterwards to join WP Mullins.

Tyson gallop
Form Summary

Season 2020-21 outlook
Although a rarity these days, 'Tyson' was bought as a 4yr-old at the NH Store Sales in 2020. Having already been broken-in pre sale, this gelding came straight to Dodlands Steading for a few weeks of pre-training. And he was quite backward, so not much had been done with him at home pre-sale - just the way we like it!
By the end of August, this fellow had shown a lot of promise on the gallops, and was still devouring his food and maturing well. The initial plan - to have him sent away to his owner to spend a couple of months to strengthen - was revised and he is now working upsides the other 4 year olds who've re-entered the yard. He goes well.

We'll see how he continues though, and he probably will benefit for a break at some point in mid Winter so we'd expect he'll be back in early Spring and may take in a late season bumper..

Bought by Rob Bewley at the delayed Goffs UK 2020 Spring Sale which was actually held at the end of July.

So, not the usual numbers in attendance but abiding the the strict measures that prevailed at the time, Rob was on hand to cast his eye over a number of ear-marked catalogue selections.

As an NH Sire, Jet Away wouldn't have started off his career with anything approaching a band of select blue-blooded mares. And yet, albeit from a small sample, he has returned excellent Irish Point-to-Point figures (wins and place) during the early part of 2020 that made quite a few judges sit up and pay attention.

'Tyson' is a nice type of gelding who really looks the part now that he had tightened up for a couple of months of training. Promising sort.
