Jamaea – a star race filly in Sydney over the last number of seasons – is the latest high profile lot earmarked for sale with Inglis Digital, having been confirmed for the July (Late) auction.

Off the back of recent outstanding results for fillies and mares selling through Inglis Digital including Another Award ($1,200,000), Daisies ($920,000), More Aspen ($720,000), Literary Magnate ($640,000), She’s All Class ($620,000), Not Guilty ($480,000), Upside ($455,000) etc. Jamaea’s connections have opted to offer their star mare for public auction via the world-leading online platform.

A dual G2 winner with earnings over $1m, Jamaea proved herself one of the best 2YOs of her generation, a crop that included the likes of Anamoe, Home Affairs, Stay Inside, Captivant, Artorius, Profiteer etc.

Trained by Robert and Luke Price at Kembla Grange, Jamaea debuted with a strong victory in the summer of 2021 and would then go on to contest Stakes races at 19 of her next 20 starts.

At two she won the G2 $1m Percy Sykes Stakes and finished second in both the G2 Magic Night Stakes and Listed Lonhro Plate, the latter where she was most unlucky not to win yet still managed to run the fastest last 200m of the day, faster than the likes of Bella Nipotina, North Pacific, Ole Kirk, Dame Giselle, Prague, Rocketing By etc.


Jamaea progressed further as a 3YO, winning the G2 Furious Stakes in the Spring before finishing 3rd – beaten just a length – behind subsequent G1 winners Fangirl and Espiona in the G2 Light Fingers Stakes in the Autumn.

She also finished 3rd at Weight For Age as a 3YO filly in the G2 Victory Stakes, defeating the likes of Rothfire, Startantes, Wild Planet, Vega One etc.
Jamaea has been retired and will be offered as a breeding prospect on Inglis Digital.

Jamaea is a granddaughter of Champion sire Exceed And Excel, who is broodmare sire of 83 Stakes winners including Astern, Tuvalu, Madame Pommery, Bounding, Ten Sovereigns, Prompt Response, Paris Dior, Lofty Strike, Overpass, Encryption, Hanseatic, Garibaldi, Thanks Forever, Perfect Thought etc.

Co-trainer Robert Price described Jamaea as “simply the best’’.

“We knew from day one that she was special, she was just different to the others, you could tell,’’ Price said.

“She’s the fastest filly we’ve ever trained and as she proved herself time and again, she was one of the fastest fillies in what was one of the strongest two-year-old crops of recent times.

“She was a lovely filly to look at and she’s grown into a lovely mare and I have no doubt she’ll make a beautiful broodmare because she’s got a great attitude and all the attributes of a quality producer.’’

Price’s son Luke added: “She had this electric turn of foot, as good a turn of foot in any two-year-old you’ll see, it was special.

“She was a very tough filly who had a fabulous attitude, she knew she was good but she always used that energy and attitude to her benefit on race day.

“Wet tracks cruelled her, she could have won so many more races if not for some horrific weather at times throughout her career.

She could get through a soft track but she was around when we were getting heavy 9s and 10s every week and the tracks were just bottomless.

“I have no doubt she will make a great broodmare.’’
Jamaea’s managing owner Bruce Noble urged breeders of all levels to do their due diligence on the mare in the next week ahead of the sale, which runs from July 21-26.

“She was such a gutsy race filly and if she produces foals half as talented as her, she really could develop into a special broodmare,’’ Noble said.
“I would love to breed from her myself, but it’s just not what my brother and I are in the game to do – we are racers!

“I’ve chatted to plenty of prominent industry people about her and I’m assured that she is compatible with most of the best stallions in Australia from a pedigree and physical standpoint so I’m really excited to see what she can go on to achieve as a broodmare.

“She’s up in the Hunter Valley now and I would expect that most stud masters will fall in love with her when they see her in the same way that we did.”
Jamaea is available for inspection at Cannon Hayes Stud in the Hunter Valley from Tuesday (July 18) by appointment.
