It's hard to think of a sire in recent memory who has had a more stellar first crop of 2YOs than Eureka Stud's Spirit of Boom. And the yearling sale market has followed his obvious success by going to as high as $500,000 at the Gold Coast Magic Millions and $410,000 at the recent Inglis Classic Sale. Since November 2017 he's had a phenomenal 10 individual winners, including 4 individual stakes winners in Ef Troop, Jonker and Outback Barbie and Kinky Boom for over $1,000,000 in progeny earnings.
Lot 157, therefore, the colt from the draft of A J Crabb & Sons will certainly attract plenty of attention in Adelaide. By Spirit of Boom, he's from a five-time stakes winning-mare in Polynesian Kitty. She's already produced the stakes-placed filly Tokelau which adds even further confidence to potential suitors for one of the sprinkling of Spirit of Boom progeny on offer at the sale.
It's a terrific family to support an outstanding type – a big, strong, well balanced colt with a great walk and excellent temperament.
Second dam Polynesian Goddess adds further depth to the pedigree being UK stakes-placed August. The page is loaded with black type including stakes-winners Wood Dancer, Udidthebestyoucan, Gr1 winner Millennium Kid, Gr2 winner and Gr-placed sire Tossofthecoin. And that's before we get to outstanding Horse of the Year and Gr1 Kentucky Derby and Preakness Stakes winning 3YO colt Charismatic.
So if you're on the ground for the Magic Millions Gold Coast Sale, do yourself a favour and go and run your eye over this potential-laden young colt who can be inspected at Barn 2 Row A.
