Spill The Beans Wins Gr2 QTC Cup
In a brilliant result for Aquis Farm at Eagle Farm in Brisbane, Arrowfield Stud's Gr1-winning high profile stallion Snitzel (Redoute's Choice-Snippets' Lass, by Snippets) added a Group success when 3YO colt Spill The Beans (Snitzel-Miss Dodwell, by Falbrav) scored by 0.2-lengths for trainer Gerald Ryan in the Gr2 QTC Cup (1300m), over 4YO gelding Federal (Medaglia D'Oro-Virago, by Danehill) & 4YO entire Stratum Star (Stratum-Purely Spectacular, by Pins). Recently announced as one of four foundation stallions for Queensland's beautifully appointed Aquis Farm, Spill The Beans – from the family of Champion Bounding Away – took his record to 5 wins (including last month's Gr3 Hawkesbury Guineas & Gr3 ATC Eskimo Prince Stakes) and 3 placings (including last start's Restricted Listed Inglis 3YO Guineas at Scone & Listed Brian Crowley Stakes) from 11 starts for $560,700 earnings. Spill The Beans was retained to race after he was passed in for $45,000 at the 2014 Inglis Classic Yearling Sale.
