Love That Jazz, a graded stakes winner/producer, died April 6 of complications from colic a day after foaling a Distorted Humor filly. Bred and owned by Irving and Marjorie Cowan, 14-year-old Love That Jazz was boarded at William S. Farish’s Lane's End/Oak Tree Division near Lexington.
A daughter of Dixieland Band, Love That Jazz was one of the top 2-year-old fillies of 1996. She won the Kentucky Cup Juvenile Fillies Stakes and ran second in the Breeders’ Cup Juvenile Fillies (gr. I) while trained by Nick Zito. At 4 for conditioner Neil Drysdale, she captured the Vernon O. Underwood Stakes (gr. III) and Corona Handicap. Love That Jazz retired with six wins from 21 starts and earnings of $482,842.
Love That Jazz got off to a flying start as a broodmare. Her first foal, Society Selection (by Coronado’s Quest), was a three-time grade I winner and a $1,984,200 earner for the Cowans. Her grade I scores came in the 2003 Frizette Stakes and the 2004 Alabama and Test Stakes, both at Saratoga. She ran second in the 2005 Emirates Airline Breeders’ Cup Distaff (gr. I). Now a broodmare, Society Selection is in foal to A.P. Indy.
Love That Jazz, out of the Mr. Prospector mare. Love from Mom, is the dam of two other named foals, both unraced, including a 2-year-old Gone Westfilly named June Day. She also is the dam of an A.P. Indy yearling filly. Her newborn filly is on a nurse mare.
