“We have a really good mix in the Jackrabbit Fast group,” says Fred Taylor, Mojo’s Managing Partner.  “Half of the 25 people are first time owners—for me, as the dude that puts these groups together, it’s a privilege to be able to provide folks with an exciting opportunity to participate in the sport when they might not otherwise be able to do so by themselves.”

New Mojo Runner: Jackrabbit Fast!

On Sunday, May 20, Mojo Racing Partners acquired its fifth runner, Jackrabbit Fast, from a claiming race at Lone Star Park!

“We were being picky and wanted to find a horse that has a good pedigree, a solid race record, and an opportunity to develop in JR’s training program,” Fred Taylor (Mojo’s Managing Partner) says about the claim.

Jackrabbit Fast is a handsome four-year-old chestnut gelding by Aldebaran out of My Own Lovely Lee. Aldebaran is a multiple graded stakes winner, and was the 2003 Eclipse Sprinter of the Year.  My Own Lovely Lee is a multiple stakes winner.

To date, Jackrabbit Fast has raced 16 times, won two races, and finished in the money 12 times.

In speaking about their plans for Jackrabbit Fast, Fred reports:  “The horse looked great after the race, and he doesn’t seem to have any hidden issues—which is a credit to the previous connections.  You can be sure that JR and his team will take very good care of Jackrabbit Fast, and they’ll find a good spot for him once they’re confident he’s ready to run again.”

Wild About Annie Update

After several attempts to treat and work around the soreness in Annie’s front suspensory ligaments (with the hopes of racing her at the 2012 Lone Star Park Meet), the decision was made to take the filly out of training and give her six months off.

“We tried everything reasonably possible to soft-shoe our way around the tenderness in Annie’s front legs, but after all’s said and done, we simply weren’t seeing the positive results we had hoped for,” reports Fred Taylor, Mojo’s Managing Partner.  “So, after speaking with the vets and Diamond D, we decided the best thing to do for the filly was turn her out for several months and see if that helps.”

This fall, the Mojo connections will evaluate Annie’s condition and see if it’s possible to restart a training program.
