First foal for Jack Christopher

The first foal by the brilliant Jack Christopher (Munnings) was born at River Valley Farm in New York on Thursday out of She’s A Go Go Girl (Union Rags).

“We couldn’t be happier with this filly,” said Dr Scott Ahschwede who bred her along with his wife Dr Patricia Ahschwede and fellow veterinarian Dr Scott Pierce. “A pretty first foal with leg and size. A great start to our season.”

Arguably the fastest horse of his generation, Jack Christopher posted five decisive victories from five starts around one turn including three at Grade 1 level in the Champagne Stakes, the Woody Stephens Stakes and the H. Allen Jerkens Memorial. “Jack Christopher was an exceptional talent,” said his trainer Chad Brown. “I’ve never had a dirt horse with such brilliance. He never disappointed us in a workout or a race and was just a pleasure to train.”
