Long-winded Victory Gallop's claim to fame was his nose victory over Real Quiet in the 12-furlong Belmont Stakes, thus denying "The Fish" the chance to become the first Triple Crown winner since Affirmed in 1978. Second in the Kentucky Derby, Preakness, Haskell Invitational, and Travers, Victory Gallop won the Grade 1 Whitney at 1 1/8 miles as a four-year-old.

Among the route winners sired by Victory Gallop are Prince Will I Am, the hero of the Grade 1 Jamaica at nine furlongs on the grass (also a graded winner on dirt at 1 1/2 miles), and Free Fee Lady, who scored in the Wonder Where Stakes at 1 1/4 miles on turf at Woodbine.

Night Edition was multiple stakes-placed in Canada at 1 1/16 miles (twice on dirt, once on grass). She won her maiden in an About 1 1/4-mile turf race. A half-brother, G S T BLUES, was a stakes-winning sprinter that also succeeded at 1 1/16 miles while a full sister, Sweet Marie, placed third in the South Ocean Stakes at 1 1/16 miles.

Jaycito's third dam, Sundae Star (by Right Combination), was a multiple stakes-winner.

Both sire and dam had stamina so Jaycito is a good candidate to appreciate the demanding Derby distance.
