Albany, CA (February 14, 2020) – Jive Talkin, our homebred son of City Zip, cleared his maiden special weight condition with a game performance as the favorite in the 4th race at Golden Gate Fields going six furlongs over the all weather.
Jockey Silvio Amador hustled Jive Talkin away from the inside post to take the advantage. Pressure came immediately from the outside and he was locked in a battle down the backstrech and into the final turn. Jive Talkin put away that rival and ran strongly to the wire to win the six furlong contest by a length and one-half. He stopped the timer in 1:10.33.
Jive Talkin’s dam is the Tommy Town Thoroughbreds homebred graded stakes winner, Top Kisser. The daughter of Old Topper won or placed in ten of her fourteen career starts and she earned $407,100.
Jive Talkin comes from the barn of trainer Jonathan Wong.
