Corinthian's Jewel powered home in stretch of the Monmouth Park turf course [VIDEO] to break his maiden by 2 3/4-lengths on July 6. The 3-year-old colt is one of 27 winners by his sire Corinthian, who ranks seventh on the 2012 Second Crop sire list with over $1 million in progeny earnings.
Corinthian's Jewel has strong ties to Gainesway on both sides of his pedigree. Bred in Kentucky by Michael Hernon, William Andrade, Blackrock Bloodstock et al, he is out of Rhumb Line, also the dam of Zazu, (by Tapit) winner of the Lady's Secret S. (G1), Las Virgenes S. (G1) and Hollywood Oaks (G2).
Gainesway, as agent, sold Corinthian's Jewel at the 2010 Keeneland September yearling sale, bringing a winning bid of $130,000 George Weaver, his current trainer, on behalf of co-owners R A Hill Stable and Shirley K Stables.
