Spill The Beans
Snitzel x Miss Dodwell (by Falbrav)
DECEASED (October 2012 - November 2019)
Years at Stud: 2016 - 2019
Sadly, and unexpectedly passing away on 1 November 2019, Spill The Beans' first crop runners did their sire extremely proud, recording 22 race wins during their debut season.
Leading the way with 13 individual winners, with no other first season sire recording more during the 2019/2020 season, highlighted by multiple winners Tumbler Ridge, Cosmic Gossip and Tennessee Boy, Spill The Beans was awarded Queensland Champion First Season Sire.
Ending his career on a high with a brilliant victory over the older sprinters in the Gr.2 QTC Cup at Eagle Farm, Spill The Beans was fast, precocious and consistent, pleasing his trainer Gerald Ryan at every turn.
Bred by the iconic Australian stallion producing farm Arrowfield Stud, Spill The Beans had the all-important natural ability to match his well-constructed stallion’s pedigree. A son of the sire sensation and multiple Champion Sire Snitzel, Spill The Beans has all the makings to be a successful influence in Australasia.
The late, great Champion Sire Redoute’s Choice and his sons have forged the most dominant branch of the breed shaping Danehill sireline in the Southern hemisphere, with Spill The Beans poised to write the next chapter of that success.
"He had a wonderful attitude. Nothing phased him and he was always professional and sound. If he passes this on to his foals, he will be a top-class stallion."
Gerald Ryan, Trainer
