Spirit Of Boom Needs it Dry in 2013 Doomben 10,000

Group 1-winning trainer Tony Gollan is hoping the weather Gods will be kind ahead of Saturday’s Group 1 2013 Doomben 10,000 (1350m).

The Eagle Farm-based trainer praised his charge’s sixth in the Group 1 BTC Cup last Saturday week on a Heavy 9 but has always maintained he is a horse that “hates wet ground.”

The forecast is fine leading into the weekend but there is rain predicted today which could give the Doomben track a soaking.

“His run in the BTC Cup wasn’t too bad considering he absolutely hates wet ground,” Gollan told News limited.

“I was a bit nervous about running him on the heavy track and I did think about scratching him that day.”

Gollan admits his charge needs it dry if he is to be any hope of turning the tables on classy Sydney colt Your Song.

Many rival trainers are banking on Your Song not going as well in dry ground after he bolted through the soggy stuff to win the BTC Cup by five lengths.

Spirit Of Boom has been a consistent galloper but despite his strong efforts he has failed to win since the Magic Millions Cup in January 2012.

The five-year-old future stallion prospect is well into a long preparation, having been racing since his third-place finish in the Oakleigh Plate in February.

Other key results this campaign include a runner-up to Buffering in the Group 2 Victory Stakes and a solid Newmarket Handicap sixth.

Spirit Of Boom is part of a strong local brigade aiming to bring back the Doomben 10,000 title to Queensland.

Other major local hopes include BTC Cup third placegetter Better Than Ready and reining Queensland horse of the year Buffering.
