The 15-year-old Listed-placed mare Just Joey is offered for sale.
A daughter of Averti, she was a three-time winner during her racing career at the minimum trip of five-furlongs, two of her wins coming at two years and the third as a four-year-old. A talented and consistent sort, she was good enough to finish second in the Listed Hilary Needler Trophy as a juvenile and demonstrated her ability under a range of different conditions.
Since retiring to breeding duties Just Joey has produced four foals, including two to have raced thus far. Her 2012-foaled filly Skadi showed ability when fourth in a six-furlong maiden in 2016, which offers encouragement that the mare can produce winners.
In addition to this racecourse promise, her progeny have proven to be very successful in the sales ring. Just Joey's four-year-old Zoffany filly Azalia auctioned for 160,000gns at the Goffs UK Premier Yearling Sale in 2016 and the 2019-foaled full-sister will sell in December.
This is no surprise when you consider the extended family, which is full of winners and not a little quality. Just Joey is a sibling of two winners, whilst her second dam Vallauris was placed in the Listed Atalanta Stakes prior to producing five winners as a broodmare. The page traces back to the Grp-3 winner Step To Fame and the Listed winner Grand Trianon.
Another positive element to the pedigree is the record of Averti as damsire. Although perhaps not the first name you would think of as a source in this sense, the sire's daughters have produced the likes of Grp-1 Mackinnon Stakes winner Side Glance, the Grp-3 placed Rawaki and the Listed-placed Fire Eyes.
Just Joey is a nicely-related black-type earning multiple winner that appears to offer tremendous value at the advertised price.
