JIMMY TWO TIMES
Three times Group winner over 7 – 8 furlongs including once in record time, the mighty JIMMY TWO TIMES is combining in his pedigree the names of the best French based sires of the last three decades, respectively Kendor, Linamix, Anabaa and Highest Honor. An high quality speed supply for this son of Kendargent, an highly improving stallion whose first son at Stud, Gr.3 winner Goken, has got tremendous results with his first crop of 2yo in 2020 (three black type performers including one Gr.3 winner to date)…
Several very efficient genetic affinities are coming out of the analyse of the production of Kendargent, notably with Anabaa, a cross which has given JIMMY TWO TIMES among others while generating a positive inbreeding on Gay Mecene.
But it’s with daughters of MONTJEU that Kendargent has got most of his best progeny : sprinting Gr.2 winner and Gr.1 placed Restiadargent, Gr.3 winners Nickajack Cave and Soleil Marin, Stakes winning filly Restiana, Group placed Cheshmeh and Kenriya and black type performer Largent du Bonheur. In addition of the Listed placed Queendara whose dam is by WALK IN THE PARK, a son of Montjeu…
Let’s remind that MONTJEU is carrying the blood of Zeddaan, on which JIMMY TWO TIMES is highly linebred, and that he has sired Gr.1 winning brothers Corre Caminos and Recital with a daughter of Kendor while his own son POUR MOI, mated with another daughter of Kendor, has sired no less than Epsom Derby Gr.1 ace Wings of Eagles !!!
Among the best lines of Montjeu shall of course be highly considered the mares by MOTIVATOR, who sired the exceptional Champion Filly and Champion Mare Trève with a daughter of Anabaa, the damsire of JIMMY TWO TIMES. We shall as well support the mares by AUTHORIZED (who is bringing Rainbow Quest, highly efficient with Highest Honor), by CAMELOT (combined lines of Kingmambo and Danehill), of HURRICANE RUN and SCORPION (the latter bringing another line of Kalamoun).
By the way, any mare carrying the blood of Chef de Race SADLER’S WELLS shall be welcome, the pedigree of JIMMY TWO TIMES being free of it. A mating responsible for a lot of good quality performers by Kendargent, notably through IN THE WINGS (grandsire or second damsire of Kendam, Kenfreeze, Onedargent and Avenue Dargent), BARATHEA (damsire of Canessar), POLIGLOTE (damsire of Gargotière), Entrepreneur, and so on. Shall be therefore warmly accepted the daughters of SINGSPIEL, SOLDIER HOLLOW and ADLERFLUG, as well as JOHANN QUATZ who sired a black type horse with the immediate family of JIMMY TWO TIMES.
Own brother to Sadler’s Wells, classic sire FAIRY KING is the damsire of Stakes winner Princedargent, who is by Kendargent. As well, their three parts brother NUREYEV if often found in the pedigrees of the best products of Kendargent, notably through THEATRICAL (second dam sire of Soleil Marin), GOLD AWAY and ZILZAL.
Another very interesting genetic affinity is the nick Kendargent x INDIAN ROCKET, a combination at the origin of Group winners Batwan, Goken, Kendam and Morando… Any broodmare carrying INDIAN RIDGE or AHONOORA shall therefore be warmly welcome to visit JIMMY TWO TIMES !
Sire of Anabaa, Chef de Race DANZIG could be positively duplicated through his sons DANEHILL, MUJAHID, POLISH PRECEDENT, GRAND LODGE, IRON MASK and PYRAMUS, all of them having very good references with Kendargent. Another one on the list shall be DELLA FRANCESCA, who did very well when mated with daughters of Kendor.
NIGHT SHIFT is another very promising option for JIMMY TWO TIMES, due to his exceptional results with Kendargent : black type performers Farshad, Indécence Choisie, Kenbaio (dam by DEPORTIVO), Restiadargent and Restiana are all very impressive samples of this cross, who could be done as well with daughters or granddaughters of TURTLE BOWL !
The blood of the great Chef de Race MR PROSPECTOR shall also be promoted, his genetic affinity with Champion Sire Linamix having been also very efficient with Kendargent through mares by XAAR, FUSAICHI PEGASUS, KINGMAMBO and WOODMAN.
Highly improving sire Kendargent has done very well with a lot of different genetic sources, from all types. One of them is American Chef de Race A.P. INDY, prominent in the pedigrees of four black type performers including three by a daughter of MUHAYMIN !
Any line of LYPHARD shall also be highly appreciated, notably through ALZAO and DANCING BRAVE, as well as the whole dynasty of the brilliant BLUSHING GROOM (Arazi, Baillamont, Rahy, and so on). Priority shall be offered to RAINBOW QUEST, highly efficient with the genetic of Highest Honor, and to classic winner and classic sire LE HAVRE.
BERING is another one who did very well with Kendargent, which is driving us to promote broodmares by AMERICAN POST who has done extremely well with Kendor, with Linamix and with Anabaa. Same comment for SHARPEN UP male line mares, especially through KRIS, DIESIS and MUHTATHIR.
Let’s also remind that Kendargent has sired Group or Listed winners with daughters of BERNEBEAU, CHATO, LAYMAN, MONSUN, MORE THAN READY, SAMUM and VINDICATION, a list which underlines how numerous can be the opportunities to get high quality horses with JIMMY TWO TIMES. We shall also mention that Goken (Kendargent) has sired Prix du Bois Gr.3 2020 winner Livachope with a daughter of SOAVE (Dashing Blade).
Finally, speculative inbreeding can be done on Classic Sires KENDOR, LINAMIX (like in the pedigree of the black type horse Go Athletico through the cross Kendargent x Sageburg), ANABAA or HIGHEST HONOR, if not too close, or on Gr.1 winning mare BALBONELLA to build up a genetic equivalence between Anabaa and his close relative KEY OF LUCK. If the daughters of CAT JUNIOR can generate an inbreeding on Elite Mare LUNADIX, the broodmares carrying POLYTAIN shall be welcome to duplicate both BIKALA and PAULISTANA !
