Recently-retired multiple Group One winner Jimmy Choux will stand at New Zealand’s Rich Hill Stud in the spring.

The reigning New Zealand Horse of the Year has been secured in a deal between Rich Hill and Nearco Stud.

“We weren’t originally planning to have a new stallion, but the decision by Sir Percy’s English owners to rest him from shuttle duty this year coincided with the retirement of Jimmy Choux,” John Thompson of Rich Hill said.

Trained by John Bary, Jimmy Choux was juvenile Group Two winner and Group One placegetter.

At three he claimed Group One New Zealand 2000 Guineas-New Zealand Derby double and took that form to Sydney where he won the Rosehill Guineas.

Jimmy Choux returned as a four-year-old to claim the Group One double of the Windsor Park Plate and Spring Classic before running second to Pinker Pinker in the Cox Plate.

He posted 12 wins and eight placings from his 26 starts and earned $NZ3,626,763.

Jimmy Choux is by 2004 Stradbroke Handicap winner Thorn Park out of Centaine mare Cierzo and will stand his first season at $NZ10,000.

The decision to retire Jimmy Choux came after he was unplaced in last month’s Queen Elizabeth Stakes at Randwick.
