Thorn Park x Stella Livia (by Titus Livius)
Standing at Hunter Valley, NSW
As one of just two sons of Champion Sire Thorn Park to stand at stud in Australia, stunning chestnut Spieth is a genetic masterpiece, the heir apparent to his sire.
Possessing a scintillating turn of foot, the manner in which Spieth defeated his rivals in the Listed ATC City Tattersalls Lightning (1100m), when accounting for a quality field by two lengths, was simply something to behold.
Winning the Listed sprint in a time quicker than Deep Field, Spieth went onto to finish within a lip of winning both the Gr.1 VRC Darley Classic (1200m) and the Gr.1 VRC Lightning Stakes (1000m), both run down Flemington’s famed straight course.
A complete outcross and free of Danehill blood, Spieth hails from the immediate family of Champion Sires Flying Spur, Encosta de Lago and Holy Roman Emperor, as well as fellow Gr.1 winners Charm Spirit, Erupt, I Am A Star, Russian Revolution and Hasna.
Defeating 16 individual Gr.1 winners throughout his career highlighted by Hellbent, Lankan Rupee, English, Holler, Flying Artie, Voodoo Lad, In Her Time, Astern and Terravista, Spieth was well supported with two high-quality books of mares and his first crop foals are sure to have strong commercial appeal at the 2020 weanling sales.
"He is a real value horse for me, and that’s what all commercial breeders seek."
Royston Murphy, Sledmere Stud
"Spieth is undeniably a Group One talent. From what I saw of him in previous preparations to what he has shown me up the hill at Lindsay Park tells me that he is top class and one of the best sprinters to come through my stable."
David Hayes, Trainer
"Spieth was a very fast horse and a great physical type. We have six from his first crop and all have impressed me as being close to clones of their sire. They’ll run for sure."
John North, Bowness Stud
