BOOM RACING THOROUGHBREDS SUPPORT BEER
Boom Racing Thoroughbreds went shopping for yearlings in Tasmania earlier in the year and settled on this filly by Written Tycoon out of Honey Flower.
A bay with black points and a star-snip on her head the filly has been broken-in by Greg Hayes and has since handled an educational preparation with Mitchell Beer. By leading Victorian sire, Written Tycoon out of Honey Flower in-turn the dam of Cristovao a 4-YO that has placed three times from a handful of runs.
Boom Racing Thoroughbreds (BRT) liked the filly as a type, the pedigree page has depth and to give the filly a nice kick along Honey Flower has a yearling colt by the 2015 MRC Blue Diamond winner Pride of Dubai (by Street Cry) in the wings, as well as a weanling filly by the Caulfield Guineas winner Press Statement (by Hinchinbrook).
Her sire, Written Tycoon retired for covering duties at Eliza Park Stud in the spring of 2007 covering his first book of mares for a modest fee of $8,250.00 (inc. GST). Victorian breeders supported the chestnut sending 118 mares to him, in-turn they produced 94 live foals that went on to perform on the racetrack providing the chestnut with an Australian Leading First Crop Sire award for the 2010-11 season. Out of Party Miss (by Kenmare) a winner of four races that hails from the female family that’s produced a champion sprinter Yell (by Anabaa) in 2002-03 (nine wins); Anthems (by Palace Music) 10 wins including the Group 1 QTC Sires’ Produce Stakes and Queensland Classic plus Holler (by Commands) four wins including the Group 1 ATC Canterbury Stakes, Written Tycoon offers breeders plenty of options being free of Danehill (by Danzig).
Now covering mares at Woodside Park Stud, Written Tycoon remains popular with breeders’ overall with the Australian Stud Book showing more than 1,600 mares served over the past 11 seasons. The popular horse confirmed his status as Victoria’s leading stallion on the last Saturday in February when Written By (ex Yau Chin) easily won the Group 1 Blue Diamond Stakes (1200m). The chestnut horse has five winners at the highest level, the same number again at Group 2, three at Group 3 and 12 Listed another 19 stakes placegetters. As of early-December 2018, the horse’s statistics read 561 runners for 419 individual winners with earnings of more than $53million in earnings.
Not Enough? Honey Flower was trained by Ross McDonald at Caulfield, a handy racemare that won four races from 14-starts which included a win in the Listed VRC G H Mumm Stakes over 1100 m. In the Autumn of 2013 she also placed at Group 3 level in the SAJC D C McKay Stakes (1100 m.). By Bel Esprit, a horse that is best known as the sire of Australia’s World Sprint Queen, Black Caviar, Bel Esprit was brilliant at two and three and won multiple, Group 1 events. Now a successful sire, Bel Esprit represents a speed branch of the Northern Dancer line that is not via Danzig but rather through the classic winner Nijinsky and his talented sire son, Royal Academy.
Mitchell Beer was born into racing and relished having the bug for the sport from an early age.
His father, Les was a successful jockey that rode many winners during a career that spanned more than 30-years while his sister Ashlee was a professional jockey, who now competes on the picnic circuit.
Mitchell started his professional life with thoroughbreds at 16 when he worked for the powerful Lloyd Williams operation at Flemington before stepping up to become the stable foreman for Russell Cameron, also at Flemington.
The experience gained with both Flemington operations served Mitchell well, moving to Mornington to become the assistant to another talented horseman, Jason Warren.
Beer worked with Warren as he developed his business to become one of the premier stables on the Peninsula as a host of smart horses went through the stable, none better than the Group 1 winner Bel Sprinter, during Mitchell’s tenure. Mitchell played a significant role in Bel Sprinter’s maiden Group 1 win in the Galaxy in Sydney in 2013 before he travelled with the exciting galloper to Singapore where the speedster ran second to the world class performed Lucky Nine in the KrisFlyer International Sprint.
Mitchell gained his trainers’ licence in November 2015 before forming the partnership with Max Hinton soon after. In the summer of 2016 Mitchell trained his first Group winner with Almighty Girl sustaining a long run for victory in the Typhoon Tracy Stakes Group 3 over 1200 m.
Mitchell decided to permanently move his stables to Albury in September 2018 and had immediate success winning the Cootamundra Cup with former New Zealand mare, Dreams Of Paris.
Beer is well known, liked and respected throughout the industry with his infectious personality and attends the yearling sales as he searches for a ‘special’ galloper
