Jambalaya ~ Turf Specialist
Copyright 2007 Linda Shantz
Jambalaya’s story is the kind we’d all like to have – a modest $2500 yearling purchase who became one of Canada’s best turf horses in recent years. I had the honour of meeting this personable son of Langfuhr a few weeks before his thrilling victory in the 2007 Arlington Million. Trained by Catherine Day Phillips, “Jambo” was sidelined after the Million, but is back in training at Woodbine. Hopefully we’ll see him back in action at Gulfstream this winter! For more of Jambalaya’s story, please visit Catherine’s website.
This painting was produced from photos I took of his win in the 2006 Singspiel Stakes at Woodbine. The original 18 x 24 oil on panel is sold, but an 8 1/2 x 11 collector edition print is available for $30.00. As with everything on this blog, a portion of sales will go to LongRun Thoroughbred Retirement.
