About The Yearling Filly by Spirit Of Boom out of Aotearower

This beautiful Filly was acquired by Fortuna Racing and David Ellis at the 2024 Magic Millions Gold Coast sale – this after David, in conjunction with fellow thoroughbred selector, Marcus Corban and Fortuna’s NZ Trainer, Mark Walker, had conducted extensive inspections over the previous six weeks. As always, our focus was very much on type and any Fillies that made the shortlist needed to have ticked several boxes before they could be on the list. We also had a budget and we are firm on not going above budget. Our budget for this year sale was A$120,000 and we managed to secure this lovely Filly for A$100,000 after she had been originally passed in at A$140,000, from her Breeders, Cambridge Stud


This Filly’s Sire, Spirit Of Boom, needs little introduction and is well proven  – consistently a Top 10 Stallion by wins and winners on the Australian General Sire list, he has been Queensland Champion Sire for four seasons in a row, and is the Sire of over 370 winners, including 25 Stakes Winners. A powerful Sprinter himself as a racehorse, he won twice at Group One level, the Doomben 10,000 and the The William Reid Stakes and raced until he was a six year old winning nine times from 52 starts, demonstrating that he was a very durable type.

The Dam, Aotearower (by Shamardal) won 4 times in NZ and was Group 3 placed. Her Dam, Katoon (by Kaapstad) won four times including twice at Group level. This is the family of Black Panther and Cross Roads and represents the tough, hardy nature that the NZ thoroughbred is renowned for

Physical type

This Filly, whom we have given the Stable Name “Boomer” is a beautiful walking Filly of good size and scope. She certainly ticked all of the usual boxes we look for when trying to select genuine, athletic types. Click HERE to see her parade ahead of the Magic Millions Sale

Preparation and Racing Plans

“Boomer” traveled back to NZ mid February and enjoyed a paddock spell at Te Akau Stud – she has since been broken in, completed her first stable prep during April, has had a three week paddock spell at Te Akau Stud and has now returned to training at Matamata and is being prepared for one of the early Spring trials

Here is what the Selection Team have to say about this Filly

Te Akau Racing Principal David Ellis says “John, once again  you have done incredibly well here – you are running hot!!! We loved this Filly, she is full of class and by a Stallion who leaves consistent performers at all ages – physically she ticked all of the boxes and has an extremely good pedigree page as well.”

Te Akau Racing Trainer Mark Walker says “John, this Filly just breezed across the ground beautifully when she paraded for us – I just love the fact that she is out of a Sharmardal mare, the same as Imperatriz – this is a very strong NZ Family that consistently produces winners, but in particular, I loved her on type physically, very correct with a great walk. I am sure she will run as a 2yo, but will develop and mature into a strong 3yo type”

 Syndicator’s view (John Galvin)

“The Magic Millions Gold Coast Yearling sale is a top end sale and it can be very difficult to buy at, particularly if you are working to a budget as we are – doing appropriate research and inspections is extremely important and Fortuna Racing is very fortunate to have the team of David Ellis, Mark Walker and Marcus Corban doing this research for us.  In the end we had several nice Fillies on our list and we would have been happy to own any of them, but “Boomer” was one who had particularly caught our eye due to her physical type and walk. Her pedigree page represents just what we like to buy, i.e  a combination of Australian speed influence with tough middle distance/staying New Zealand bloodlines.”

This is a series with all of its races being run on one day in mid January each year and which now carries in excess of A$14 million of prize money, including a A$3 million race for two-year-olds and a A$3 million race for three-year-olds – only runners purchased at this sale are eligible to run in any of the races in the series
