The super tough Grinfromeartoear 3 year old Mister Jadore once again showed all his staying qualities when he led up and fought off all the challengers in the $100,000 Westbred Final for harness racing 3 year olds at Gloucester Park last night.

Attacked in front by the favourite Mista Rush for the last lap, Mister Jadore responded magnificently for driver Chris Lewis to record a narrow but well deserved victory.

He covered the the 2130 meters in 2:35, a mile rate of 1:57 with closing sectionals of 57.8 and 29.3.

It was the Annie Belton trained pacers 12th lifetime win from just 27 starts and took his stake earnings to $267,889.

The interesting thing about the win is although Mister Jadore is a Western Australian bred horse, he has a really international pedigree.

By the very successful son of Artsplace in Grinfromeartoear, Mister Jadore is from the very smart New Zealand bred mare in Crystal Journey 2:00.2 ($113,185).

Crystal Journey is a full sister to the smart New Zealand pacer, Revamy (9 wins)  and is closely related to several smart horses including the very talented Galactic Council 1:52.1 ($224,440) who is a full brother to the dam of Crystal Journey, Silky Atom and Hippitty Hop 1:53.2 9 ($131,137) who is a half-brother to Silky Atom.

This family originated in North America and the branch that Mister Jadore belongs to was established in Australasia when David Phillips of National Bloodstock imported the Airliner mare Satin Lining to New Zealand in the 1980s.

Satin Lining's best performer was the very smart New York Motoring mare Silk And Satin 1:59.1 ($82,684) who is the grand-dam of Mister Jadore.

So why last night’s race was only for West Australian breds, the pedigree of Mister Jadore has a real international feel to it.
