“We did not anticipate such strong late interest in shuttling Hit It a Bomb, and an unforeseen opportunity came about that was too good to turn down,” said B. Wayne Hughes, owner of Spendthrift. “It was a difficult business decision to send him to South America, and we regret any confusion this may cause.
“I want to make it clear that we will continue to be committed to bolstering our stallion operation at Spendthrift Australia,” added Hughes. “The first key to having mutual success for Spendthrift, the stallion, and the breeder is to make sure we are doing our job by having the right horses in the right places. I believe we will have a lot of the right horses coming to Spendthrift Australia in the future.”
Spendthrift Australia has announced Swear, the Group-winning and G1-placed son of Redoute's Choice, new for 2017 as a participant in the farm's renowned “Share The Upside” program. The Victoria-based operation will also stand Warrior's Reward (USA), Jimmy Creed (USA), and Hampton Court.
