Thoroughbred Club Thursday – BJ

Meet owner Jerry Ling and her horse, BJ (race name Blakjak Paperback)

Here is a brief overview of BJ’s race history:

BJ wasn’t a very successful racehorse despite being out of All American and half brother to the G1 winning filly Yankee Rose. He had 10 unsuccessful race starts and moved through a few different prominent trainers before I bought him the day after his last race for $800 in April 2016. I’ve brought on BJ as an all round performance horse and he is proving to be an awesome dressage and SJ mount!

Arrowfield did an off the track story on us earlier this year!

Jerry’s story on how she came to own BJ:

“I reached out to as many syndicates and trainers as possible and met BJ before he’d finished racing.  My gut told me he was my horse and I made an offer and have never looked back. I love him and I’ve loved the process of bringing him on! He’s now schooling elementary dressage and makes light work of jumping over 1m.”

What discipline does BJ now excel:

Dressage
Show Jumping
Pleasure
Trail

Personal story about BJ:

He used to be very timid and shy when I first got him and I love that he is now really confident and friendly with people and can give cheek kisses on command!

When I’ve had a bad day at work there’s nothing like his nose wiggling on my cheek and a big cheek

Thank you Jerry.
We at Thoroughbred Events Australia and The Thoroughbred Club wish you all the success in the world.
Because of you we know our beloved race horses are being cared for.
