SPILL THE BEANS (Aus)

A son of Champion Sire Snitzel, Spill The Beans hails from a highly potent tail male line. Snitzel has worked with a variety of broodmare sire lines, his versatility undoubtedly adding to his terrific success.

Redoute’s Choice and Nijinsky II in Spill The Beans’ pedigree are members of the very influential TORPENHOW family. Spill The Beans would benefit from the presence of other family members in mares such as TRY MY BEST (sire of LAST TYCOON), DR. JOHNSON, FAR NORTH, THE MINSTREL, HURRICANE SKY, XAAR, UMATILLA, FREE AMERICA, RULER, DENON, MASTERCLASS, NEW REGENT, EL GRAN SENOR, SPINNING WORLD and GIELGUD. Snitzel’s Gr 1 winner WANDJINA is out of a LAST TYCOON mare.

The SIR TRISTRAM line is an appealing cross for Spill The Beans, with his sire Snitzel having produced Gr 2 winner TIME FOR WAR from a ZABEEL mare, Gr 2 winner FLYING SNITZEL by HULA TOWN and Gr 3 winner AMORINO with a MARAUDING mare to-date.  Daughters of other descendants such as GROSVENOR, LONHRO, KAAPSTAD, SOVEREIGN RED, EL QAHIRA, MILITARY PLUME, OCTAGONAL, SAVABEEL and DR. GRACE are also desirable.

Mares by CANNY LAD will create a sex balanced duplication of this Star Kingdom flagbearer (damsire of Redoute’s Choice) when mated with Spill The Beans.

The presence of Grand Chaudiere and Bold Reason in Spill The Beans’ pedigree shout out for their close relation, NEVER BEND. Damsires carrying this influence (mainly via sons MILL REEF and RIVERMAN) include LAST TYCOON, STRAIGHT STRIKE, MAROONED, DOYOUN, SHIRLEY HEIGHTS (via descendants DARSHAAN, DALAKHANI and ZERPOUR), BRIEF TRUCE, RIVOTIOUS, EXIT TO NOWHERE and LOUP SAUVAGE.

Mares by RED RANSOM are appealing, with Snitzel’s speedy daughter CHANCE BYE being by this sire. He and sons such as ALL AMERICAN, DUPORTH, DOMESDAY, SRI PEKAN, CHARGE FORWARD and BROCCO will suit Spill The Beans. Gr 2 winner PERIGNON is by another son of ROBERTO, Narita Brian (Jpn).

Spill The Beans’ damsire Falbrav is also damsire of Gr 1 winner FRAVASHI out of a DEHERE mare.

HALO line broodmares are also very appealing.  A close relation to Danehill and Northern Dancer (5 lines in Spill The Beans), Halo can be sourced via damsires such as FUJI KISEKI, MORE THAN READY, SOUTHERN IMAGE, SUNDAY SILENCE, DUBLEO and irgun.

With Spill The Beans being free of Mr. Prospector, mares from the sire line are particularly appealing. Broodmare sires such as HUSSONET, RHYTHM, WOODMAN, KINGMAMBO, STRAIGHT STRIKE, MACHIAVELLIAN, ELUSIVE QUALITY, UMATILLA, GEIGER COUNTER, BELLOTTO, EL MOXIE, JADE ROBBERY, distorted humor, END SWEEP, INFLATE, VETTORI, THUNDER GULCH, FAPPIANO and SECRET SAVINGS are good candidates.  Snitzel’s Gr 1 winner SWEET IDEA and Gr 2 winner FRENCH EMOTION are out of mares with WOODMAN on their sire line.

Snitzel’s Gr 1 winner HOT SNITZEL is out of a mare by BLUSHING GROOM, who is also available via QUEST FOR FAME, SPECTRUM, REDDING, NOVERRE, NASSIPOUR and FANTASTIC LIGHT mares.

Sex balancing of Ahonoora (Spill The Beans’ second damsire) can be achieved with mares carrying DON’T FORGET ME, STATOBLEST, DR DEVIOUS, INDIAN RIDGE and BALL PARK.

Similarly, a sex balanced duplication of speed influence SNIPPETS can be achieved by introducing his sons PINS and SNIPPETSON in mares.

Fairy King (sire of Falbrav) and Lorenzaccio in his dam’s pedigree are GOODY TWO SHOES family members. Adding Fairy King’s brother SADLER’S WELLS and three quarter brother NUREYEV in matings will highlight this prepotent family, as well as fellow family members such as TATE GALLERY, GEIGER COUNTER, YEATS, INFLATE, PERUGINO, CAMPO CATINO, TOPSIDER, FESTIVAL HALL, TOPSIDER, DREAMSCAPE and OPEN DAY.

Broodmare sire representatives of SADLER’S WELLS and NUREYEV include STRAVINSKY, SPINNING WORLD, STARCRAFT, PEINTRE CELEBRE, HIGH CHAPARRAL, SCENIC, CARNEGIE, EL PRADO (and sons ARTIE SCHILLER, KITTEN’S JOY and MEDAGLIA D’ORO), GALILEO and BARATHEA. Snitzel’s Gr 1 winner HEAVENLY BLUE is out of an EL PRADO mare.

Snitzel has produced Gr 1 winners out of mares by SUCCESS EXPRESS (SHAMUS AWARD) and GENERAL NEDIYM (SIZZLING). There are no impediments on his distaff side to Spill The Beans also working very well with these individuals.
