Spirit Of Boom to Tackle Brisbane Trifecta Over The Goodwood 2013

Queensland trainer Tony Gollan is 80% sure his smart sprinter Spirit Of Boom will stay at home this weekend and take on the likes of Buffering and Rain Affair in the BTC Cup over a trip to Adelaide for the 2013 The Goodwood.

The Sequalo stallion is dually nominated for the weekend featuring among the early entries for both the $400,000 Group 1 BTC Cup (1200m) at Eagle Farm and the $500,000 Group 1 The Goodwood (1200m) at Morphettville.

The level of competition they will face in the Brisbane classic, the first Group 1 of the Queensland Winter Racing Carnival, is expected to be tougher however looking at the horse’s future plans this season the 2013 BTC Cup does look the better option according to Gollan.

“He’s 80-20 to stay here because I’ve got the Doomben 10,000 and Stradbroke in mind after Saturday and would prefer not to travel,” he said.

“It’s a long way to go to Adelaide if he drew wide and it’s a slowly run race.”

The $650,000 Group 1 Doomben 10,000 (1350m) runs on May 25 followed by Queensland’s richest race, the $1.36 million Group 1 Stradbroke Handicap (1400m) at Eagle Farm on June 8.

Spirit Of Boom contested all three races last winter starting with a fifth to Sea Siren in the BTC Cup.

From there they were fourth, beaten by the John O’Shea-trained Sea Siren again this time in the Doomben 10,000 before a sixth to Mid Summer Music in the Stradbroke.

While they are yet to win a Group race in their 37 start career to date the five-year-old has been competitive at the highest level over a number of seasons including their third in the Group 1 Winterbottom Stakes (1200m) in Perth last November and their first-up third to Mrs Onassis in the Group 1 Oakleigh Plate (1100m) at Caulfield this February.

They were last seen running three and a half lengths away second to the Rob Heathcote-trained Buffering in the Group 2 Victory Stakes (1200m) at Doomben on April 27, Buffering one of their big dangers should they run in the BTC Cup.

The other main rival is Sydney raider Rain Affair, Joe Pride’s Commands gelding coming off three big Group 1 runs including their second to All Too Hard in the All Aged Stakes over 1400m.

However Gollan is happy that Rain Affair is in the mix saying their front running style will help bring the pace Spirit Of Boom needs to be competitive.

“He needs the speed on and with Rain Affair in the race here that’s going to suit him ideally,” he said.
