In Community Engagement, Stallions, Thoroughbred Racing by Ben Ready

Aquis Farm will support exciting young sire Spill the Beans with the best mares possible naming recent Group II winner Cradle Me (pictured right) as an early booking as well as new acquisition Run to the Moon (USA), the dam of Group I placed stakes-winner Odyssey Moon.

Purchased for $300,000 by Aquis Farm at the Magic Millions Broodmare Sale, Cradle Me won the Group II BRC Dane Ripper Stakes at her first run for Aquis and the seven year-old closed out her career with a gallant sixth in the Group I Tatts Tiara at Eagle Farm last Saturday.

Completely free of Danehill blood, she appeals as a lovely partner for Spill the Beans, a Group II winning son of Snitzel from the family of champion filly and Golden Slipper winner Bounding Away.

Sourced through Beamish Bloodstock and bought privately from New Zealand is proven stakes producer Run to the Moon, whose best progeny to date Odyssey Moon is by Spill the Beans sire Snitzel.

A half-sister to dual US Group I winner Jostle by Arch, Run to the Moon is said to be a lovely type and is currently in foal to classy sire Makfi (GB), the sire of Group I Australian Oaks winner Sofia Rosa.

A winner of over $600,000 in prizemoney, Odyssey Moon showed he still has more to give with a powerful win at Flemington last Saturday coming on the back of a string of stakes placings through the autumn.

Letting down nicely in the warm winter Queensland sunshine, Spill the Beans stands this spring at a fee of $11,000.
