A ripping colt by the Reigning Champion QLD sire SPIRIT OF BOOM out of the Stakes Winning Exceed And Excel mare BABY CORN, producer of 5 winners including 5 x winner & 2 x Group 1 placed 2yo CORNROW! Powerfully built colt stamped by his sire, he’s our first QTIS colt for our Class of 2021 and you won’t find better value than this!


A colt that immediately grabs the eye! He’s a lovely shape that has a nice balance of Spirit Of Boom and his broodmare sire Exceed And Excel in him. Well grown, strong colt and looks the type that should be up and going early.

** Very strongly built, running style of colt. He has a great hindquarter and strong hip on him which is a renowned Spirit Of Boom trait, lovely deep girth, nice and correct and very forward moving.

** By a boom sire and from a speedy family! His mum was a gun 2yo and is doing the job at stud producing 5 winnings including his half-brother who was a gun Group 1 placed 2yo.

** Bred off a farm that certainly know how to raise brilliant racehorses! Kitchwin Hills graduates included Vow And Declare, Dubious, Pierata, Yes Yes Yes just to name a few.


Sire – SPIRIT OF BOOM (by Sequalo)

** A stallion who broke all the records in his first season at stud being the Australian Champion First Season Sire by Winners of his generation and Queensland’s Champion First Season Sire

** And he has backed that up taking his second Champion 2yo Sire honour last season for the 2nd time as well as the overall Champion Sire in Queensland for the 2nd time in a row – CV’s don’t get much better than that!


** Also the sire of recent winner for FLR BOOM RANGA!

Dam – BABY CORN (by Exceed And Excel)

** 2yo City winner on debut, 2yo Stakes Winner and placed in the Blue Diamond Preview all in her first prep – what a super juvenile racehorse BABY CORN was!

** She’s done well at stud too with the 5 winners from 6 to race by mostly average stallions including the very good CORNROW who was twice Group 1 placed as a 2yo in the Sires Produce and Blue Diamond.

** The 6th foal to race that is yet to win is only a 2yo filly by Capitalist called Socialist who debuted as a pre-Christmas 2yo in a Stakes Race in Sydney beaten only 4.3 lengths. Before that she was a trial winner and they’ve tentatively thrown a nomination in for a feature race over the Sydney Championships so is clearly a filly with ability and you’d have great confidence she’ll be getting a win in that stable.

** All Dams in the first three generations are Stakes Winners and under the 2nd Dam SWEET CORN, is recent Group 3 Hobart Cup winner DOUBLE YOU TEE.

** Plus, with this colt being out of an Exceed And Excel mare, he carries the same cross as one of Spirit Of Boom’s best in EF TROOP. Speed on speed as they like to say.
