IRISH 1,000 Guineas heroine Jet Setting has been retired from racing and has had leading French sire Le Havre chosen for her first covering as a broodmare.

The four-year-old daughter of Fast Company who is out of the winning Johannesburg mare Mean Lae, was purchased as a maiden for 12,000gns at the 2015 edition of the Tattersalls Autumn Horses in Training Sale by John Kilbride.

She duly rewarded her new connections investment, the Equine Growth Partnership, when she beat Minding by a head to win the Curragh contest.

On the back of that success she was offered at last year's Goffs London Sale where she was bought by the China Horse Club for £1.3 million. She ran a further four times and landed the Group 3 Concorde Stakes at Tipperary.

China Horse Club's Mick Flanagan said: "Jet Setting will be bred to Le Havre. China Horse Club purchased a share in the stallion recently and now we will breed this Classic winning filly to a multiple Classic producing sire.

"Whether it's Europe, the USA or Australia, China Horse Club is committed to supporting its stallion interests with high quality broodmares and fillies off the track."
