Lets Be Lucky Racing are delighted to offer lease shares in the six-year-old mare Fumbo Jumbo. A dual winner with plenty more to offer, she is trained by Rebecca Bastiman from her Wetherby base.
Lets Be Lucky Racing is a unique family-run syndicate, which offers members a personal, hands on experience. Owners receive weekly email updates on the progress of their horses, the opportunity to visit the stables regularly and the chance to share in the thrill of a day at the races. With a proven track record thanks to the exploits of multiple winners like Newstead Abbey and Play Nicely and having been to Royal Ascot and many other major race meetings, you can be sure that you won't go far wrong with LBL!
Fumbo Jumbo began her racing career as a two-year-old and managed to finish runner-up over six-furlongs on her second start. She went on to open her account in a five-furlong Musselburgh handicap at three, before impressively adding to her tally by four lengths a few starts later over the same C&D.
It is unusual for a five-furlong sprint to be won by so far, and those efforts propelled her to a mark in the 80s, from which she has continued to remain competitive. Perhaps her most notable performance to date came when she was a brilliant second in the 'Jump Jockeys Nunthorpe' on her seasonal reappearance at York in 2017.
Her record last season proved a little more patchy, as she ran several times on unsuitably fast ground, and her mark began to decline as a result. Despite that, when second at Ayr last June, when third at Haydock in August and then when filling the same position at Redcar in September, she demonstrated in no uncertain terms that she retained her ability.
She will now start the 2019 season rated 67, which is three pounds lower than her last winning mark, and fully 18 pounds lower than her career-high rating which she reached in October 2016. She is surely a winner waiting to happen from that rating, and has only relatively recently been transferred to Rebecca's care. The Bastiman family are renowned for their ability to find improvement in cast-offs from other yards and do particularly well with sprinters - most notably the dual Grp-1 Nunthorpe Stakes hero Borderlescott.
Effective over five or six-furlongs, on all types of turf and the AW, this mare runs regularly and consistently, rarely finishing out of the money. She looks a super addition to the Lets Be Lucky Racing team and is sure to provide syndicate members with an awful lot of excitement in the months ahead.
