It’s been quite the week for Boomer Bloodstock with purchases taking out races right across Australia.
The fun started with Thunderstrut (Choisir) in Perth last Saturday when she showed great determination to hold off Street Fury by a head over 1000m at Belmont. Sitting off the leader, she took the lead in the straight and showed tenacity in her victory. This is the second win for the Lindsay Smith trained 3-year-old filly, who gave her large group of owners another big reason to celebrate taking home $68,800 from the win. Purchased by Boomer for $120,000 at the Magic Millions Perth Yearling Sale, the filly hails from a deep international family
Two-year-old filly Kwai (War) looks like an exciting prospect for Star Thoroughbreds after easily winning her debut on Sunday in Tasmania. She had a tough task taking on older horses on debut, but her talent shone through when she made easy work of the 1000m race to win by two lengths after a slow start. Purchased for Star Thoroughbreds at the Magic Millions Tasmanian Yearling Sale by Boomer for $45,000, she also has the distinction of becoming the first winner for her sire War.
Anthemoessa (Smart Missile) showed off her abundant ability when shedding her maiden label at Wangaratta in fine style. The 2-year-old broke the hearts of the field as she pulled away to easily win by 1 ¾ lengths over 1170m. Trained by Matt Cumani, the granddaughter of Boisterous Lady was a $130,000 purchase by Boomer at the Magic Millions Gold Coast Yearling Sale in 2017.
Ending the week of success, Mascot (Redoute’s Choice) entered the winner enclosure at Newcastle yesterday after coming close on numerous occasions. Sitting toward the rear of the field, the 3-year-old switched into gear in the stretch of the 1400m event, relishing a firmer surface. Bought by Boomer from the Inglis Sydney Easter Sale, the Michael, Wayne, and John Hawkes trained Mascot is out of a half-sister to three-time Canadian champion Soaring Free.
