Youthful Jack To Return To Sydney For July Sprint

Ramornie Handicap winner Youthful Jack will make his first appearance in Sydney since December last year when he takes part in the July Sprint (1200m) at Royal Randwick on Saturday.

The rising eight-year-old returned to his best form with a fast finishing win in the Listed Ramornie Handicap (1200m) at Grafton a fortnight ago and trainer Ross Stitt is confident that the gelding can record his first win in Sydney since his victory in the 2009 Group 2 Royal Sovereign Stakes  (1200m).

Stitt will not be accompanying Youthful Jack to Sydney, as he recovers at home from a knee replacement, but veteran jockey Robert Thompson will once again partner the popular galloper.

“He sprinted like a three-year-old in the Ramornie,” Stitt told AAP.

“I’ve had some big moments in racing but that was one of the biggest.

“I have been banned from the horses for two months but I’ve got good staff and they are looking after him and the other horses for me.

“All reports are he has come on from the Ramornie and he has to be better to win at Randwick.

“I don’t get to see him at the moment but I will be watching on television, that’s for sure.”

Youthful Jack will be having his sixtieth race start on Saturday but Stitt has no plans to retire the gelding, who has won more than $1 million in prizemoney, and is looking ahead to his next campaign with a return to Tasmania for the summer once again on the cards.

Youthful Jack has won the Listed Thomas Lyons Stakes (1400m) in Hobart the past two years and was victorious in the 2011 Stakes (1200m) in Launceston.
