Jet Away is among the best bred horses at stud, but this Timeform 118-rated son of Cape Cross (by Green Desert) is standing as a National Hunt stallion and so will have few representatives appearing on the track over the next few years.
He stands at Arctic Tack Stud in Co Wexford, he covered 180 mares in his first season and his first foals made up to €26,000.
He is by the sire of Sea The Stars and Golden Horn, his unraced dam, Kalima (by Kahyasi), is an unraced full-sister sister to two stakes winners, and that pair are Arrive and the phenomenal Hasili.
Arrive won the Listed Bahrain Trophy and she is the dam of Group 1 Pretty Polly Stakes winner Promising Lead (by Danehill). She is also responsible for the Grade 1-placed dual pattern scorer Visit (by Oasis Dream) and she is the grandam of the Group 3 Autumn Stakes winner Commemorative (by Zamindar).
Hasili, of course, is not only the dam of the Group/Grade 1 stars Banks Hill (by Danehill), Cacique (by Danehill), Champs Elysees (by Danehill), Heat Haze (by Green Desert) and Intercontinental (by Danehill), but also of the Group 1-placed pattern scorer Deluxe (by Storm Cat) and of the multiple Group 1-placed Group 2 miler Dansili (by Danehill). The latter is one of the best sires around and his early stallion sons having been doing well.
Cacique has sired Group 1 winners, Champs Elysees has sired pattern winners, and Banks Hill is the dam of the Breeders' Cup-placed Group 1 star Romantica (by Galileo) and of the Group 2-placed multiple stakes winner Ideal World (by Kingmambo). That horse has made a promising start to his stallion career in South Africa where his progeny include the multiple Grade 1 heroine Smart Call.
Others produced from siblings of Kalima include the Grade 1 star and classic sire Leroidesanimaux (by Candy Stripes). Kerali (by High Line), the winning grandam of Jet Away, was out of the Group 1 Cheveley Park Stakes winner Sookera (by Roberto), which made her a half-sister to the Group 1 Nunthorpe Stakes scorer So Factual (by Known Fact).
There are many others of note within the branches of these first three generations of the pedigree. Jet Away is an exceptionally well-bred horse and this 10-furlong Group 3 scorer is one of the most interesting stallions to retire directly to a National Hunt stud in recent years.
