jeune première


[Fr. luh zhœn]
Jeune (1989-2006) was a British Thoroughbred racehorse who raced in England and Australia and is best known for winning the prestigious Melbourne Cup in 1994.

Jeune began his racing career in Europe, eventually becoming a Group Three winner. His owner Sheikh Hamdan bin Rashid Al Maktoum sent him to Australia where he was trained by David Hayes. In Australia, Jeune's Group One racing record stands at 10 wins and 17 placing from a total of 42 starts.

In 1996 Jeune was syndicated for stud duties, first at Hayes' Lindsay Park property in South Australia before transferring to Collingrove Stud in Victoria in 2004.

The 2003 Caulfield Cup winner Mummify is amongst Jeune's offspring.

On the morning of January 4 2006, Jeune was found dead of apparent heart failure at Collingrove Stud in Victoria.
