Jonker is the epitome of genetic evolution, not only is he the fastest product of his successful sire line, he is also the best looking. A strong masculine stallion with incredible balance and athleticism, Jonker is the trump card.
Jonker is a welcome addition to Queensland’s stallion ranks.
His racetrack career highlighted many attributes desired by Australian breeders, early maturity, record breaking speed, soundness, longevity and of course a Group 1 winner. Once that is combined with his incredible nature and sex appeal, it puts Jonker in rarefied air.
Victory in the MVRC Manikato S., Gr 1 (1200m) at Moonee Valley and further placings in Group 1 events the BRC Kingsford Smith Cup (1200m) and the ATC Galaxy Hcp (1200m) added to an impressive record during 5 years on the track.
At 2, Fast from the start JONKER made a big impression on debut in the Newcastle Max Lees 2YO Classic (900m) streaking away by 4 and a half lengths. He then brilliantly announced himself as a future star, dominating the Wyong Magic Millions 2YO Classic (RL) (1100m) a race previously won by champion stallions NOT A SINGLE DOUBT, SNITZEL and CAPITALIST
At 3, JONKER was luckless when pitted against the cream of that year’s crop, he had placings in Sydney’s version of the Coolmore Stud Stakes, The Arrowfield Sprint (Gr 2) behind world class sprinter and champion Classique Legend and placings at Group and Listed level in the San Domenico Stakes (Gr 3) and Fireball Stakes (LR)
During the Queensland summer carnival JONKER came of age, a victory first up in the BRC Keith Noud Hcp (LR), preceded a placing in the George Moore Stakes (Gr 3) before a dominant win in the $1,000,000 GCTC Magic Millions Snippets P.(1200m), further placings followed at the elite level in the Galaxy behind Champion Eduardoand the Kingsford Smith Cup to Vega One.
JONKER put on a spectacular exhibition of blistering, sustained speed in winning the GROUP 1 Manikato Stakes, in doing so recorded the FASTEST time of any male to do so. That time was also nearly 2 seconds quicker than his Sire and Grandsire recorded over the same track and distance on the same track conditions.
