J J The Jet Plane - R12 Million in Worldwide Earnings

Vuma Champion, J J The Jet Plane touched down in Johannesburg last week from Dubai. He is currently in the quarantine facility for the next 5 weeks and we are delighted to have him back on South African soil!

With JJ in quarantine is the new addition to the Summerhill stallion ranks, Bankable, who is a very exciting stallion prospect, following his exceptional career of 8 wins for earnings of more than R22 million.

JJ is a true South African hero, and a real illustration of the exceptional thrills that can be experienced in horse racing.

His exploits here and abroad, in Hong Kong and Dubai, show that four friends with R70,000 to spend and some luck and perseverance can take on the world and win!

JJ was bought at the National Two-Year-Old Sale in 2006 and went on to win over R12 million in races across the globe, including the Cathay Pacific Hong Kong Sprint (Gr1), the Al Quoz Sprint (Gr2) on Dubai World Cup night as well as the local Computaform Sprint (Gr1), the Mercury Sprint (Gr1) (twice) and Golden Horse Casino Sprint (Gr1) (twice).

Unfortunately his suspensory ligament injury has meant that his international career has been cut short but luckily for us, he has returned home and we are thrilled to have him back in the Vuma fold.

Welcome home JJ!
