Lovely Jubly, dam of six-time Gr.1 winning world champion sprinter Chautauqua, will be amongst the mares awaiting triple Gr.1 winning champion two-year-old Air Force Blue when he arrives in Australia for the 2017 southern hemisphere season.

He was clearly an exceptionally fast, precocious horse and the more I read about him, the more I liked him.”
