Boom! Boom! Boom!


Eureka Stud sire Spirit of Boom has done it again and now has three hot chances for the prestigious January Magic Millions 2YO Classic.

Newcastle colt Jonker (pictured, Bradley Photos) is the new favourite for the 2YO Classic (1200m) at the Gold Coast after a destructive win in the the Wyong Magic Millions 2YO Classic (1100m) on Thursday. 

The Spirit Of Boom colt let down with an explosive finish to win by four and a half lengths, after taking a sit behind leader La Pomme De Pin.

Skyray finished second while Peter and Paul Snowden-trained colt Bondi was third in the lead-up race to the Magic Millions Classic.

Jonker is now the $3.50 favourite for the January event.

Last weekend's impressive winner of the Phelan Ready Stakes at Doomben, Ef Troop, also by Spirit Of Boom, is second favourite at $4.60 after holding top spot at $4.20 before Jonker's Wyong win.

It rounds out an incredible week for Eureka Stud's first season sire, with promising filly Outback Barbie winning the $100,000 Calaway Gal Stakes at Doomben on Saturday, making it a race-to-race double for both Spirit of Boom and trainer Tony Gollan.
