Boom Time Wins Listed Mornington Cup Prelude

Monday, 27th February 2017

At Caulfield racecourse in Melbourne, retired Arrowfield Stud stallion & former Australian Champion Sire Flying Spur (Danehill-Rolls, by Mr Prospector) added a black-type success when 5YO gelding Boom Time (Flying Spur-Bit Of A Ride, by Snippets) scored by 0.4 length for trainers David & Ben Hayes & Tom Dabernig in the $120,000 Listed Mornington Cup Prelude (2000m) for 3YO+, over 5YO Italian-bred gelding Goldstream (Martino Alonso-Imco Imagination, by Darshaan) & 5YO UK-bred gelding Pilote d'Essai (Oasis Dream-Plante Rare, by Giant's Causeway). This was Boom Time's first stakes victory since claiming the Listed Melvista Stakes in 2015 and improved his record to 5 wins and 7 placings (including the Gr1 ATC Western Australian Derby & Listed JC Roberts Stakes) from 23 starts for $419,125 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.
