Blue Heaven Farm’s two-time OBS graduate Starship Jubilee was 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 wins, three in graded stakes company. She took the Woodford Reserve Ballston Spa Stakes (G2) at Saratoga in August, the Canadian Stakes (G2) at Woodbine in September and came right back a month later to score in Woodbine’s E. P. Taylor Stakes (G1). She’s off to a good start in 2020, winning all three starts including the Suwanee River (G3) at Gulfstream and the Hillsborough (2) 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.

At her first visit to OBS, she was purchased for $6,500 by Laurence F. Leavy out of The Acorn consignment at the 2014 August Yearling Sale. She was next consigned by Halcyon Hammock Farm to the 2015 April Sale where she went through the ring after breezing an Under Tack eighth in :10 2/5. watch her under tack video
