Killybegs Jet Lady is an eye-catching 7-year-old mare by Jet Away and out of Little Twinkle.
Killybegs Jet Lady has plenty of presence about her. During her time in training with dual Grand National winning trainer, Lucinda Russell, she has shown great determination and an honest attitude.
Killybegs Jet Lady recorded progressive form figures of 4321 in Irish Point-to-Points. She had just the one start last spring when finishing 4th at Ballyknock and improved her Point-to-Point rating with every run since. Her time between the flags came to a close with an impressive 18-length victory at Borris House in December.

That win is looking better and better over time; three of the horses she beat – by 18 lengths, 32½ lengths and 34½ lengths respectively – have since gone on to win races.
Following a good break over the summer, she returned to training and has now run twice over hurdles.
On her first run she showed that her jumping is definitely an asset, as befits a staying chaser in the making. However, it quickly became clear that she was uncomfortable going right-handed and used up too much energy in the early parts of the race.
The result of her second outing was explained by illness but fortunately she is now back in full health and should be seen on a racecourse again very soon.
