Spill The Beans And Divine Prophet Settle Into Northern Hemisphere Stud Duties

In Stallions by Ben Ready

Aquis’ gun stallions Spill The Beans and Divine Prophet have taken like ducks to water to their stud duties in the northern hemisphere with both already living up to their reputations.

After a long journey and a couple of weeks in quarantine, Spill The Beans got his first taste of life on foreign shores in January after finally joining his stable partners at The National Stud.

He has already struck up a great friendship with his handlers Paddy and Sam who reckon he is one of the easiest stallions they have to manage. By all reports he has settled in well and adjusting to the weather.

It goes without saying that coming from the sunny Gold Coast into the deep winter at Newmarket would be tough for anyone. Luckily he is surrounded by some of the best handlers in the world with plenty of experience in making sure their every need is catered for.

One of the many new friends Divine Prophet has made on his reverse shuttle to Tara Stud.

Meanwhile, Divine Prophet celebrated Valentine’s Day with an important date; covering his first European mare Zoumie at Tara Stud in Ireland.

Zoumie is the unraced half-sister to Croistultan the Listed-winning and Group-performed son of Refuse To Bend. It is a European family through and through that features Champion horses from Germany and Scandinavia.

Divine Prophet has now seen his fair share of weather, running around in wind, rain, snow and low-lying clouds, it is certainly a far cry from the dry Australian heat he is used too.

As the season progresses we will bring you further updates on the boys’ adventures and look forward to highlighting some more European mares and breeders in search of Australian bloodlines.
