Highlands stallion Jackson got off the mark with just six runners on the track so far, when his son Bountiful Strength dug deep to win at his second start at Durbanville on Saturday.

The Joey Ramsden-trained Bountiful Strength, bred at Highlands,  was fancied  in the nine horse 1250m Maiden Plate and he continued to find resolutely under Richard Fourie to beat the more experienced favourite Frozen Tune by a half length in a time of 76,31 secs.

The handsome and athletic Jackson, a son of Horse Of The Year Dynasty, and also bred by Highlands, was the top lot sold from the 2010 National Two Year Old Sale.

Jackson’s first  yearlings fetched up to R2 million in 2017
