The third of our new additions to the 2018 stallion roster is off the mark, with Spill The Beans having his first northern hemisphere mare scanned in foal over the weekend.
Boarding at Charlie Budgett’s Kirtlington Park Stud, the mare is the regally bred Elvira Delight; a winning half-sister to Gr.1 King’s Stand Stakes winner Equiano, and Listed winners Encore D’or and Evita Peron.
Billy Jackson-Stops of Atlas Stallions said, ‘Spill The Beans has settled in to life at The National Stud really well and I’m delighted with the quality of mares that breeders are supporting him with. Even though we already knew his fertility was excellent, to have his first mare covered in foal is a great start to the season.’
Spill The Beans, a multiple Group winning sprinter, is the first son of Australian Champion sire Snitzel to stand in the northern hemisphere and stands at a fee of £6,000 Oct 1st SLF.
