Boom Time Wins Listed Melvista Stakes

Monday, 30th March 2015

At Ascot in West Australia, retired Arrowfield Stud stallion & former Australian Champion Sire Flying Spur (Danehill-Rolls, by Mr Prospector) added a black-type success when 3YO colt Boom Time (Flying Spur-Bit Of A Ride, by Snippets) scored by 1.75-lengths for trainer Trevor Andrews in the $100,000 Listed Melvista Stakes (2200m) for 3YO c&g, over fellow 3YO colt Say Geronimo (Mastercraftsman-Kew, by Casual Lies) & 3YO gelding Quite Regal (Viscount-She's All Storm, by Stormy's Son). This was not only Boom Time's first stakes victory, but it was also his maiden victory and took his record to 1 win and 5 placings (including the Listed JC Roberts Stakes) from 13 starts for $102,425 earnings. Boom Time was retained to race by his breeder Ferrari Racing and Breeding after he was passed in for $65,000 at the 2013 Magic Millions Perth Yearling Sale.
