Rest in Peace Jennpenn (1997-2016)
Top trainers, such as George Morris, are pushing for the reintroduction of Thoroughbreds into the hunter ring. Thoroughbred blood is considered highly valuable in creating athletic and refined horses for sport.
Jennpenn was a successful race horse with 57 starts. She retired sound and went on later to compete in the jumpers. She had a level-headed and amateur friendly personality, which she passed onto her foals.
Jennpenn was a proven producer. She was the dam of Jennuine Blue who won the yearling Thoroughbred class at Devon in 2012. The same filly was 3rd nationally in the yearling hunter breeding division. She finished 4th nationally in the 3 Year Old hunter breeding division this past year. She was also 2nd place in Zone 4, GHJA Hunter Breeding Champion, 4th place in the National Silver Stirrup Award, and Zone Silver Stirrup Champion!
Jennpenn’s pedigree is full of sport horse producing bloodlines that include Raja Baba, Bold Ruler, and Gummo. Raja Baba’s damsire, My Babu, is considered one of the most influential sires in American breeding of show jumpers, eventers, and hunters. His descendants include Bruce Davidson's former eventing mount JJ Babu, Anky van Grunsven's dressage horse Bonfire, and puissance and grand prix jumper Sympatico. Also, the grand prix jumper Napur is related to him through his sire Damascus dam Kerala. My Babu was the sire of Kerala, and therefore one of Napur's grandsires.
Raja Baba himself was an excellent producer of race horses, but also sport horses, especially through his son, Northern Raja. Northern Raja became known for his beautiful, flashy, and excellently mannered show hunters. A few of his offspring include Somerset Bay, Lola, Make a Wish, and Silver Raiment.
