Bred by Prestonwood Farm, Jostle was purchased privately by Porter after she was bought back for $105,000 at the 1998 Fasig-Tipton Saratoga yearling sale.
Multiple grade 1-winner and millionaire Jostle, who was purchased by Pete Whittman at the Keeneland November breeding stock sale for $1.7 million, has been placed back in training at Churchill Downs under Elliott Walden's care. On Dec. 20, the 4-year-old daughter of Brocco worked three furlongs at Churchill Wednesday in :37 3/5. Then-owner Richard Porter announced Jostle's retirement last fall and the filly was then sent through the sales ring at Keeneland. With a record of eight wins and five seconds from 19 starts, Jostle has earned $1,381,682. Previously trained by John Servis, Jostle won back-to-back grade I races in 2000 when she took the Alabama and Coaching Club American Oaks. The daughter of Brocco was winless in five starts this year, but as beaten only a neck each in the Hempstead (gr. I) and Pimlico (gr. III) Handicaps. At the time or her retirement, Servis said Jostle had been plagued by ankle problems this year.
