SPIRIT OF BOOM – Leading First Season sire by 2yo Winners 2017-18 Season.

Spirit Of Boom has commenced his stud career with a huge Boom indeed, producing 19 individual winners making him the leading first season sire.

He produced 5 stakes winners in his Australian first crop of 2yo’s, which is more than any first season sire since Champion Sire Exceed and Excel in 2008.

Two times group one winning sprinter and stakes winning 2YO.

Spirit of Boom possessed speed, stamina and acceleration to win twice at Gr 1 level, the BRC Doomben 10,000 (1350m) and the MVRC William Reid Stakes (1200m).  He was a fast and forward 2yo, winning three times, including a 7 length win in the Magic Millions 2YO Prelude. He went on to become a 2YO stakes winner, and place in both a Gr 2 and a Listed race.

Tough and sound, he has now run 52 times amongst the best company in Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane and Perth, competing to earn 19 Group race places, with places in five Gr 1’s – VRC Newmarket (2nd to Lankan Rupee), MRC Oakleigh Plate (twice) (2nd to Lankan Rupee) and the WATC Winterbottom Stakes, BRC BTC Cup (2nd to Famous Seamus).

A real Queenslander, he was Eureka-bred, reared, and raced, and now returns to Eureka to stand. He also carries Eureka’s successful Semipalatinsk broodmare sire line. He has the right qualities for Queensland, 2yo speed, tenacity, and toughness with class and consistency.

Having the perfect temperament to train on and remain sound, his “never give up attitude” saw him race for a total of nine wins, 20 placings and prizemoney totalling $2,412,900.

Tony revived his own training business in 2003. A stroke of good fortune gave his return some early momentum. Eureka Stud father-son combination, Colin and Scott McAlpine, gave him a Special Dane filly which they named Temple Spirit. The filly was a great success on the track, winning eight races. The association with Temple Spirit has continued with Gollan Racing, with the team enjoying tremendous success with of the mare’s foal Spirit Of Boom and Temple Of Boom. The latter lifted Tony’s profile on to the big stage when he won a Listed Race at Flemington on Oaks day in 2010. It also whet his appetite for the major carnivals. “It was an incredible buzz just to have a runner at Flemington in Cup week. It’s addictive. I want to get myself to a stage when I can travel to those big carnivals regularly,” he said.

Tony Gollan has achieved the feat of winning the Metropolitan Queensland Trainers’ Premiership for 5 seasons in a row and currently holds the record of Metro wins breaking his own record in the 2017/18 season previously set in 2015/16.

Gollan is quick to point out the fantastic team of people that helped make the stable tick, as team Gollan looks to continue its success heading into each new racing season.

“I’m blessed to have the support from some really, really good clients and I’ve got some really good staff and my family around me,” said Gollan. I’m just a very lucky bloke who’s getting the limelight for training winners, but there’s a big team behind me. We want to be strong here again next season, we have got 91 boxes in the stables here at Eagle Farm and each year we aim to be better than the last. We want to continue to be a strong force here in Queensland for another season and hopefully we can do that.”

Early in May 2017 we relocated to the $20 million Eagle Farm infield Stabling complex.

Brisbane Racing Club can now showcase the one of the best training facilities in the world being the first major stable complex to be constructed on the infield.

These stables boast rooftop viewing platforms, modern waste collection, quality security and landscaped hospitality spaces to be used for our owners on open days.

The horses are homed in spacious boxes with very good airflow to allow horses to be more comfortable in the hotter climate.

At Gollan Racing we have the luxury of having access to both Eagle Farm and Doomben Race-courses for training.

The morning track-work is conducted at Eagle Farm which includes the Course proper, A grass, American Dirt track, Sand track and B Grass and an equine pool.

Our other facilities include 2 horse walkers, tie-ups, Sand-rolls and our own treadmill.

When you join the team at Flying Start Syndications you receive our “FLYING START Communications” system that ensures our owners are fully aware of how their horses are progressing – via emails, photos, audio, videos of track work/jump outs etc. Also all owners are welcome to stable BBQs, Flying Start Syndication race days and stud tours.For all ownership enquires please contact:
