Ending his career on a high with a brilliant victory over older sprinters in the Group II QTC Cup at Eagle Farm, Spill the Beans was fast, precocious and consistent, pleasing his trainer Gerald Ryan at every turn.
Bred by iconic Australian stallion producing farm Arrowfield Stud, Spill the Beans had the all-important natural ability to match his well-constructed stallion’s pedigree.
In Australia, champion sire Redoute’s Choice and his sons have forged the most dominant branch of the breed shaping Danehill sireline with Spill the Beans poised to write the next chapter of that success.
- The first son in Queensland of Australia’s most commercial sire Snitzel
- Grandson of the legendary Redoute’s Choice
- Undefeated two-year-old and Group II winning sprinter at three
- Five wins from 11 starts, three of those wins in Group races (from 1200 – 1400m)
- From the family of Australian Horse of the Year, Champion 2YO and Golden Slipper winner Bounding Away and Group I winner Speak Fondly
