Spirit of Boom | Eureka Stud

Standout first-season sire Spirit of Boom (Aus) (Sequalo {Aus}) will stay at the McAlpine family’s Eureka Stud in Queensland and will command a A$55,000 fee for the 2018 breeding season, ANZ Bloodstock News reported early on Monday. The dual Group 1 winner stood for A$11,000 last year, but has already sired four stakes winners among his 11 winners from just 35 runners to date.

“Breeders can breed to him with confidence in that he throws you a good type and he works with the Danehill bloodline,” Harry McAlpine told ANZ on Sunday. “We have a lot of big agents and big-name breeders tell us you stand at whatever price, we are coming with as many mares as you will take.”

His filly Kinky Boom (Aus) won the lucrative Listed Inglis 2yo Premier this eason, while Jonker (Aus) lifted the Wyong Magic Millions 2YO Classic. Both listed winners Outback Barbie (Aus) and EF Troop (Aus) have been placed at the Group 2 level, in the G2 Percy Sykes S. and the G2 Todman S., respectively. Through Sunday, Spirit of Boom’s runners have amassed $1,165,082 in earnings and he leads the first-season sire list by winners. Only Zoustar (Aus) is ahead of him in the earnings race.
