First Winner for Jimmy Creed
Tara Madgwick - Thursday, 4 May 2017
Spendthrift shuttler Jimmy Creed (USA) has broken the ice with his first winner after two year-old colt Admiral Jimmy scored an explosive win on debut at Gulfstream.

Jimmy CreedPrepared by Todd Pletcher, Admiral Jimmy burst clear by the eighth pole and came home three and half lengths in advance of his nearest rival.

He zoomed over the four and a half furlongs in 51.07 seconds, equalling the track record set by subsequent stakes-winner Awesome Banner in 2015.

A homebred for Siena Farms, Admiral Jimmy is a half-brother to stakes-winner Velvet Mood and is from Zayanna, a half-sister by Bernardini to Group winners Dilemma and Heavenly Ransom.

He is the first winner for Distorted Humor's Group I winning son Jimmy Creed, who has shuttled to Spendthrift Australia for the past two seasons and is on the roster again for 2017 at a fee of $7,700.
