SPILL THE BEANS (15.3hh, 2012 Snitzel x Miss Dodwell)
£6,000 1st October SLF
An outstanding performer on the track and equally as outstanding in the flesh. Spill The Beans was precocious, tough and incredibly fast. He won 5 of his 11 starts and placed a further 4 times. He is the first son of the almighty record breaking sire sensation Snitzel to stand in Europe.
Spill The Beans was undefeated as a two-year-old. He continued this dominance as a three-year-old by becoming a multiple Group winner, including a breathtaking performance to win the Gr.2 QTC Cup over 6.5 furlongs as well as a 2.5 lengths route in the Gr.3 Hawkesbury Guineas. He has beaten subsequent Gr.1 winners such as Pride Of Dubai, Stratum Star, Le Romain and Holler.
He was the most popular first season sire in Australia in 2016 covering over 200 mares, proof of how highly regarded he is by the Australian breeders. His stunning physique and durability on the racecourse have made him a necessity for breeders in the southern hemisphere.
Spill The Beans is an incredible looking son of dual Champion Australian sire Snitzel. Snitzel completes a sequence of 3 Champion sires from his grandsire Danehill through to his sire Redoute’s Choice; all 3 of them have held the title on multiple occasions. Snitzel sired a record equalling 26 Stakes winners last season, a record he is on course to obliterate this season, as well as siring 12 Gr.1 winners overall.
As the first son of Snitzel in Europe Spill The Beans offers breeders an exciting chance to access one of the most sought after sire lines in the industry.
