Blue Heaven Farm’s two-time OBS graduate Starship Jubilee has been named Canada’s Horse of the Year and champion female turf horse at the 45th annual Sovereign Awards ceremony.
Never off the board in seven starts in 2019, the now 7-year-old daughter of Indy Wind posted four stakes victories, three in graded stakes company. She took the Gr. II Woodford Reserve Ballston Spa Stakes at Saratoga in August, the Gr. II Canadian Stakes at Woodbine in September and came right back a month later to score in Woodbine’s Gr. I E. P. Taylor Stakes.
She’s off to a good start in 2020, winning all three starts including the Gr. III Suwanee River at Gulfstream and the Gr. II Hillsborough at Tampa Bay Downs. Trained by Kevin Attard, she has compiled a 35-17-5-3 career record and earned $1,498,667 to date.
