Booming Crop Delivering the Goods

Tara Madgwick - Tuesday June 21

A flurry of weekend winners and a memorable juvenile trifecta at Ipswich last Saturday have propelled Eureka Stud’s Spirit of Boom to the top of the leading sires by 2YO winners table.

Spirit of Boom spent his first four seasons at stud at a fee of $11,000 before his first runners hit the track and raced up a storm.

He was the leading first season sire by winners for 2017/2018, posting 18 first crop winners that included five stakes-winners headed by Outback Barbie and Jonker, who would ultimately go on to become his first Group I winner.

That success saw his fee soar to $55,000 and he covered 218 mares in 2018, so Spirit of Boom has an exceptional crop of 2YO’s out there and we’ve only just scratched the surface of them.

Priced at $33,000 this spring, Spirit of Boom is a well proven sire, whose record will only improve as these subsequent crops from quality mares come to fruition.
