Jet Setting stays in training with Adrian Keatley

Jet Setting stays in training with Adrian Keatley after the Irish 1,000 Guineas winner was sold for £1.3million at Goffs London Sale on Monday evening.

Having been purchased for just 12,000 guineas by the Equinegrowthpartners Syndicate last October, the Fast Company filly has since won three races and stormed to Classic success at the Curragh last month.

She will now run in the silks of emerging owners-breeders China Horse Club, with her first assignment for new connections in the Coronation Stakes at Royal Ascot on Friday.

Jet Setting is, however, set to remain in Keatley's care.

The Friarstown handler said: "She's staying with me and I'm nearly sure that Shane (Foley) keeps the ride on Friday.

"She'll go over to England on Wednesday and we're very much looking forward to what should hopefully be a great day.

"It (the sale) is a great result for the lads (Equinegrowthpartners) and it was obviously a massive result her winning the Guineas.

"It's also a massive result for racing as it gives people hope, and a lot of people need hope at the lower end of racing."

Keatley added that plans as to whether Jet Setting races on as a four-year-old have yet to be finalised.

Equinegrowthpartners Syndicate had earlier expressed their joy at the dream sale.

They tweeted: "Great result for the syndicate but even more delighted she stays with Adrian and wins the Coronation for him! #result."
