ADRENALINE’S 2021 SPIRIT
Shares in a colt by Spirit of Boom
The TTSC’s Authroised Representative Adrenaline Thoroughbred Syndications are thrilled to be offering shares in this colt by Spirit of Boom. A sire they enjoy talking about, especially as the offspring this season when his service fee rose to $55k (from $11k) are yearlings, which include this colt.
Spirit of Boom has been getting results that are tracking or bettering the likes of I Am Invincible, Not A Single Doubt and Written Tycoon this was the reason Adrenaline bought five thoroughbreds by the horse over the past 12-months.
Known for his soundness and durability, Spirit of Boom raced 52 times, winning nine races and finishing in the placings on a further 20 occasions – amassing over $2.4 million in stakes. Performing consistently over five seasons, the handsome son of prolific winner getter Sequalo was up early – racing six times at two – and was still in great form during his last campaign, at his penultimate start winning the Group 1 Doomben 10,000 (defeating his half-brother Temple of Boom and the globe-trotting star Buffering) then at his finale finishing on the heels of the place getters in the Group 1 Stradbroke Handicap (1400 m.).
Australia’s fourth leading third-crop sire, for the 2019-2020 season, Spirit of Boom held his own against the likes of Zoustar, Declaration of War and Dundeel, all of those horses started off their stud careers at considerably higher service fees.
Spirit of Boom is already a sire with an impressive record of 12 stakes winners; the Gr.3 gallopers Boomsara, Spirits Aubeer and Listed winners Jami Lady, Outback Barbie, EF Troop, Jonker, Champagne Boom, Frangipani Moon, Sugar Boom, Heaven’s Deal and Perudo.
NOT ENOUGH? The colt’s dam, The Bar is from one of the Ingham/Darley’s finest sprinting families outlined by Danndine Stud pushing to $260k for her as a broodmare while in foal to Shooting to Win. A daughter of Ad Valorem, Danzig’s (Sire of Danehill) Champion 2yo and Older Miler in Ireland who won the G.1 Newmarket Middle Park and Royal Ascot Queen Anne and the sire of 14 Stakes winners including 2017 G1 JJ Atkins Stakes winner Capital Gain. The Bar showed talent early winning at Newcastle before having her career cut short.
The Bar is the half-sister to Holler, winner of the G1 Canterbury Stakes defeating Kermadec and First Seal. Holler was also the winner of the Group 2 Australia Stakes at Mooney Valley and beaten a head in the Group 1 William Reid Stakes at that track. Holler is now standing at stud with Darley with his oldest progeny are two-years-old.
This colt was bred by Daandine Stud, a boutique operation responsible for producing Written Tycoon, Capitalist and Isotope from small numbers, so the colt has had the right start to life.
Adrenaline Thoroughbreds will manage the Horse Racing Syndicate with a 5% share on-goings charged at $175.00 (inc. GST) – that’s a fixed monthly flat rate so no surprises!
Well known and respected as a patient and skilled trainer in New Zealand, Paul Jenkins has in recent years made his mark from his Sunshine Coast base, achieving great results with a small team of horses.
Career highlights for Paul include Group One victories for Bazelle (Auckland Cup, Zabeel Classic) and King Keitel (Doomben Cup) whilst current members of his stable include the stakes placed winner Travistee, the exciting metropolitan winner Picka Plum and the consistent Love Squirrels.
Patience has been the key with each of these talented horses, Paul justifiably proud of the hands-on approach that allows his charges to reach their full potential.
“I like to think that we get the best out of them by being careful with them,” he said, adding that in regards to stable size “big is not always best!”
Currently happy with his dozen or so horses in work, Paul is hoping to expand a little as boxes are added to the already first-class training facilities on offer the Sunshine Coast, a track ideally located just over 100km north of Brisbane.
There is a camaraderie amongst the trainers calling the Sunshine Coast home and with expansion on the cards the base’s influence is only going to increase – “it will be the jewel in Queensland racing’s crown,” Paul said.
“The Sunshine Coast Turf Club is extremely well run,” he added, “and is only going to go from strength to strength.”
Paul is a hands-on trainer who gets great results through this dedication to his horses which suits Adrenaline Thoroughbred Syndication’s.
