Queensland spinter Spirit Of Boom broke his Melbourne duck with a dashing win in the Group 2 $220,000 Perri Cutten Caulfield Sprint (1100m) at Caulfield on Saturday.
A quiet ride by Nick Hall saw the 6yo stallion by Lyndhurst Stud’s Champion sire, Sequalo, come from well back in the field to score by three quarters of a length over the consistent Shamal Wind and the Peter Moody trained Ready To Rip in a very tight finish.
“We’ve been knocking our heads down here for quite a few seasons now, it’s really rewarding today, I’m so stoked he won,” trainer Tony Gollan said.
The win also enhanced his stud appeal, where he will eventually retire to Eureka Stud, the McAlpine family farm on the Darling Downs at which he was born and raised.

Trainer Liam Birchley hailed jockey Damian Browne ‘a genius’ after Liesele, aided by a saloon passage run, overwhelmed Sumakaray late on to win the $120,000 Listed Alinghi Stakes (1100m) at Caulfield on Saturday.
Liesele (pictured, Jay Brown) started one from the outside and Browne went back from the start to settle near last and along the rail by halfway.
Staying there into the home straight, he was able to follow Lonhspresso and then come inside that mare, able to peel off the heels of Sumakaray inside the final 100m to come on and score a soft win.
The 6 yo mare was bred by Queensland family, the Hudsons and failed to attract a bid when offered for sale as a yearling.
“The owners I’ve known for a long time and they sent her to me, they send one to me every year,” he said. “I’m just so glad that they are now getting a result.”
She’s now has nine wins from 37 starts and collected over $400,000 in prizemoney.

Epsom winner Boban continued his unbeaten spring campaign, rocketing home past his rivals in the Moonga Stakes at Caulfield on Saturday.
“All went according to plan really, that’s how he won the Epsom and we weren’t going to change things,” jockey Glyn Schofield said. “He’s learning how to race now and from a better barrier I could’ve put him anywhere today.”
Sydney’s premier trainer Chris Waller said Boban was likely to get a bigger weight in the Emirates Stakes at Flemington on November 9 as he continued to rack up the wins.
A $100,000 purchase for BBA Ireland at the 2011 Magic Millions Gold Coast Yearling Sale, Boban was bred in Queensland by the Thomas family of Greendale Lodge and offered at the Gold Coast by the team from Millbrook.

It was a winning double for Raheen Stud at Doomben on Saturday.
Anna Lizzie recorded her fifth win from just ten starts and added $32,000 to her prizemoney after dominating the F&M Nationwide Civil Hcp (1600m), proving why she was favourite leading into the event.
In the very next race, Regular (pictured, Dan Costello Racing) shot home for a nice win in the Smart Stayzz Inns, also over 1600m. It was the four year old’s first start back after a brief spell and he showed he’s likely to continue his good form from his last campaign.
Unfortunately, the sire of both winners, Mearas, died after just one season with Raheen Stud. He’s had six starters for four winners, including a Stakes winner – It’s On the Pocket – and Regular is a Stakes placegetter.
Also flying the Queensland flag at Doomben on Saturday was Mr Favulous who jumped well and fought on doggedly to take out the Stanton Mienert Accountants BM85 over 1200m.
The 5yo gelding, by Glenlogan Park sire Falvelon, has now collected almost $400,000 in prizemoney with 8 wins, four seconds and seven thirds from 33 starts.
Glenlogan Park’s already impressive sire roster received yet another boost after RED ELEMENT got his stud career off to the perfect start on Tuesday with a really exciting winner from his very first starter.
Lining up in the Pallarenda Stakes at Townsville, Element Of Chance absolutely second-rated his opposition in a display that saw him eased down to win untouched by 2.3 lengths.
It was a big week for provincial runners, taking home more than double their prizemoney thanks to the juicy QTIS bonuses.
First place winners jumped from $6,500 to $15,000, second place was $4,300 compared to just $2,000 and third collected $2,200 as opposed to $1,000 – and it’s all thanks to the QTIS cash.
QTIS eligible horses reaped the rewards on the Sunshine Coast, Townsville, Gold Coast and Rockhampton, with $22,000 available on each QTIS race.
At the mid-week Eagle Farm meeting, $27,000 went off in the 3yo olts & Geldings Maiden Handicap, with QTIS signigicantly boosting prizemoney for the winning trifecta there – James is Blonde, Bernitchy and Bush Caviar.
And country runners are always well looked after thanks to the generous QTIS bonus of $5,000. This week QTIS owners at Stanthorpe, Wondai, Roma, Innisfail and Blackall all reaped the rewards of purchasing a QTIS horse.
