Jan Wellens

Deva Racing presents shares in the exciting Olly Murphytrained three-year-old gelding Jan Wellens. A winner on the flat already, and with plenty more to offer in that sphere, he also looks a very exciting hurdling prospect going forwards.

A son of Dutch Art, Jan Wellens was previously based with Ger Lyons in Ireland. He had a handful of outings as a two-year-old, before showing bundles of promise over a mile at Gowran on handicap debut in June.

He looked a winner in waiting on that occasion and duly made no mistake on his next start at Roscommon. Upped in trip to a mile and a quarter, he was pushed along in the early stridesand had to show plenty of stamina and a good attitude in order to get on top in the closing stages.

That success hinted that a greater test of stamina will suit this fine and strapping individual, and as such he now looks a smart juvenile hurdling prospect. He certainly has the physical characteristics required to enjoy success over obstacles, and his outstanding pedigree hints at better to come.

From a top-class Cheveley Park family, Jan Wellens is out of the unraced Pivotal mare Upstanding. She is a full-sister to the Grp-1 Lockinge Stakes winner Virtual and a half-sister to the Grp-2 Coventry Stakes hero Iceman, both of whom went on to stallion duties. The further family features dozens of high-class pattern performers.

There are also hurdles winners in the pedigree, whilst his sire Dutch Art has previously produced the useful hurdlers Suitorand Kelpies Myth.

Jan Wellens now joins the in-form Olly Murphy team, whichenjoyed a brilliant four-timer on the resumption of jump racing at Southwell last week. In little over two years with a licence, Gordon Elliott’s former assistant has enjoyed over 200 winners, secured Grade-1 success with Itchy Feet, and transformed his Warwickshire stable into one of the most powerful yards in the country.

Jan Wellens is a good-looking individual with low mileage and bright prospects. He will surely improve again on the flat, whilst he looks just the sort who can develop into a smart hurdler.

He could not be in better hands as he embarks on the exciting next phase of his career; get in touch to secure your share today!
