Jump Up, a three-time winner under NH rules, is offered for sale. He retains all of his enthusiasm, is completely sound and would make a good pointer or schoolmaster.
A handsome and athletic individual, with bundles of scope, it is evident from the picture gallery above that Jump Up remains in peak condition and a picture of health at the age of 13.
Placed in a bumper on racecourse debut, he was off the mark in a similar contest at Ffos Las on his fourth start, before winning a three-mile handicap hurdle at the same venue a few months later. Jump Up confirmed his love affair with the Welsh track when winning his third race there in another handicap hurdle a couple of seasons later.
Trained earlier in his career by Don Cantillon, Keith Goldsworthy and Peter Bowen, Jump Up was never overraced and compiled an extremely impressive record. He was never out of the places in four bumpers, and won or placed in five of his nine starts over hurdles. He has also shown decent form over fences.
Although not seen under rules for a few seasons now, Jump Up has kept his hand in by point-to-pointing, and is now available for sale with various options open to him - such as a return to the racecourse, point-to-point field or as a riding horse and schoolmaster. Don't miss out on this lovely sort at a good price.
