XY Jet Dies of Heart Attack Following Routine Gallop

January 8, 2020

Trainer Jorge Navarro on XY Jet, the sprinter he trained to win the Grade 1 Dubai Golden Shaheen.

Since his arrival at my stable at the end of 2014, I immediately felt that connection with him, which remained until today and will surely remain with me until the day of my departure, I owe X Y Jet so much, that I’m sure there are no words that can specify my thanks to his nobility and class. I do not say goodbye to a horse. I say goodbye to a friend that I will carry forever in my heart.

XY Jet’s other graded scores included the 2015 and 2017 Mr. Prospector (G3); the 2016 Gulfstream Park Sprint Stakes (G3); and the 2018 Smile Sprint (G3). He also ran second in the 2016 and 2018 Golden Shaheen renewals before breaking through in 2019.

X Y Jet most recently raced in the Dec. 21 Mr. Prospector at Gulfstream Park. He finished sixth in what would be his last race.
