Yearlings

Nicconi x Gentle Spirit

You don’t get many chances to jump into a Dual Group 1 winning family in the 2nd dam without having to pay huge money.

That was until this filly was purchased at the Magic Millions January Sale when Tony Gollan, John Foote and BRT Bloodstock joined up to buy the filly by the highly desirable stallion Nicconi.

Nicconi has already this season produced the Group 1 Blue Diamond Runner-Up Lankan Star. The filly looks progressive under the watchful eyes of the Hayes family.

The Dam side features 2 of the most popular racehorses in Australia from the last decade, THE BOOM BROTHERS.

This filly selected by John Foote represents an outstanding opportunity to buy into a Group 1 winning family at an introductory price.

This filly also represents the first purchase for BRT Bloodstock, quite ironic that it features the 2 racehorses that feature so heavily in my racing memories.

Smart Missile x Kyanne

She was a filly whom we liked upon inspection at the farm and on subsequent viewings at the sales. In fact, it was bloodstock guru John Foote who really liked this filly. That is a fair advertisement for the filly.

The filly has real scope and a stout pedigree to go with it. Smart Missile is going as good as any stallion in the country whilst the female is as full of black type as you will see in any pedigree.

On pedigree, it looks like she will not go early but more like Smart Missile’s Group 1 winner last year, Maid of Heaven will produce when overground. 

The filly was secured for $60,000 +GST which was a bargain buy at this sale. She will be trained by the best in Queensland, Tony Gollan. 

She is paid up for the Magic Millions race series ($4950) which features the outstanding $10 million race day showcase on the Gold Coast we all love.

Nicconi x Florestan’s Match

Boom Racing Thoroughbreds purchased the Nicconi x Florestan’s Match filly as a weanling from the Magic Millions broodmare and weanling sale. We paid $32,500 for her back in May with the intention to sell as a yearling.

She subsequently went through the ring at the Inglis Classic Yearling Sale and failed to make her reserve of $50,000 which it cost to get her to the sale. She is a nice filly who we were not prepared to giveaway.

She is an outstanding moving filly with good bone but in a tough market any perceived shortcoming was marked harshly. Her half-brother, The Snooperstar is trained by Ron Quinton and is a youngster with good ability.

Nicconi continues to do the job at stud with Lankan Star a recent runner-up in the Group 1 Blue Diamond for 2-y-olds being his latest to hit the headlines. She looks a progressive type.

As you will see in the video she moves like a bomb. The filly will be trained by Tony Gollan at Eagle Farm.

Spirit of Boom x Otimo 

It was early on Day 1 that BRT Bloodstock and James Clarke Bloodstock struck. The filly was Lot 15 by Spirit of Boom and purchased from the draft of Eureka Stud for $25,000. The filly is out of the leading broodmare sire Lonhro. From only a small number to race as a broodmare sire Lonhro mares have produced Osborne Bulls, Morton’s Fork, Derryn, So Si Bon and Dark Universe amongst plenty others.

This filly is the full-sister to Spirit In The Sky who was purchased at last years sale for $140,000  by Trent Busuttin and Nat Young in Victoria. They have a very good opinion of that filly despite failing first up at Flemington. Her pedigree is from the famed Woodlands Stud families.

The filly will be trained by Tony Gollan and will commence the breaking-in process immediately before then embarking on a spell in the paddocks at Telemon Thoroughbreds. As you can see in the photo below there is plenty of Lonhro in this girl. This is the perfect syndication horse with the purchase price at an entry level, QTIS eligible and potential residual upon finishing on the track.

I Am Invincible x Bikini Star 

Absolutely stoked to secure this colt by the leading stallion in the country for $100,000. He has averaged $322,500 at this year’s sales and next year his service fee will be around $250,000. 

His leading progeny include Group 1 winners Brazen Beau, Viddora, Hellbent, Voodoo Lad, Oohood and Media Sensation and alsoHoutzen, Fiesta and Invincibella amongst a plethora more.

He is a freak sire and to get the colt who is correct at this price was beyond belief.  

Spirit Of Boom x Bluesy Colt

I have tracked this colt from 6 months ago. He is a stunning type visually and has been raised very well. In fact, Darryl Gollan had a part in raising this colt. His nephew has nurtured the colt in Central Queensland and he definitely hasn’t had the silver spoon in his mouth.

He has been ridden from a young age and been fed the very best of food. This explains the completely spotless x-ray report. As we know Spirit of Boom is taking all before him at stud and at the price this colt represented excellent value.

The cross has already proven to work with the talented Frangipani Moon out of a Conatus mare. This colt uses himself very well and has that look about him, not too dissimilar to Boomsara. The colt also has the 2 crosses which have worked the best with Spirit of Boom being the 4 over 3 Danehill and the Double of Semipalatinsk.

This Colt Lot 200 was purchased in partnership with young gun bloodstock agent James Clarke. James has worked at the biggest organisations in the thoroughbred world including Godolphin. 

The breeder has retained a 25% share in the colt

Smart Missile x Forget The Weather

I laid my eyes on this colt at Oaklands Stud during on-farm inspections and boy he had us all turning our heads. He is an outstanding type by Smart Missile who is now flying at stud and with that has become very appealing to the Asian and Australian Markets. This horse was purchased with the mindset of being able to get him up around Christmas to chase the early QTIS money. 

He was secured in partnership with Aquis Farm, Gollan Racing and John Foote Bloodstock. This is a family full of out and out speed and precociousness. He is the perfect horse to become a trade horse if he does get up and early. 

Therefore this horse will suit those who are keen to be part of a horse that if things go to plan would become a potential trade horse and with that a nice profit. The intention will be to put in processes for this to materialise but nothing is guaranteed. At worst we have a cracking type by one of the hottest sires right now in the country to race.

The photo beside does not do this colt justice, he is one great type
