JIM HAYTON’S excellent 2012 litter from a mating between 2009 Select Stakes winner Windy Miller and Hawks Dutchess is starting 2015 where it left off in 2014 writes John Forbes.

Lowgate Jasper and Lowgate Onyx had their first outings of the New Year on Sheffield’s card last night with Jasper completely dominating a 660-metre open to win by six lengths in 39.16, while Lowgate Onyx finished strongly to land a 500-metre contest in 29.19.

Thus far the seven Yorkshire breds have won 37 opens between them. Only one member of the litter has failed to win an open to date, Lowgate Amber. She represented Kinsley in the BAGS/SIS Track Championship and ran third in her most recent staying open at Sheffield.
