RUSSIAN REVOLUTION
Bay horse, 2013

Fee: $55,000
With his father heading for another champion sire title Snitzel’s
superbly bred and performed son Russian Revolution will be among
the most popular of the new sires of 2018.
Russian Revolution (Timeform rating 120) was retired from racing
after his win in the MRC Oakleigh Plate (Gr. 1, 1100m) at Caulfield in
February and last season as a three-year-old he defied a heavy track
to win his first Group One sprint, the ATC The Galaxy (Gr. 1, 1100m).
Along the way he further showed his ability and class with other black
type victories in the ATC Roman Consul Stakes (Gr. 2,1200m), MVRC
Ian McEwen Stakes (Gr. 2, 1000m) and the MRC Vain Stakes (Gr. 3,
1100m), winning seven of his 11 starts to earn $1,284,225 and was
effective on all types of surfaces.
In the Roman Consul Stakes he ran a smart 1:09.08 while first up in
The Galaxy he defeated $8.7 million earner Redzel into second place,
Redzel going on to take The Everest last spring.
A half-brother to stakes winner Turbo Miss (Sebring) and to two
other winners, Russian Revolution is out of imported Ballet d’Amour
(Stravinsky), a winner in the United States and a half-sister to US
stakes winner Taletobetold from Exigent, a daughter of influential sire
Miswaki (Mr. Prospector).
L’Extravagante (Le Fabuleux), Russian Revolution’s stakes placed third
dam, bred no fewer than 12 winners, among them stakes winners
Montelimar and L’Extra Honor, herself dam of two stakes winners and
second dam of German champion Noor Al Hawa.

Russian Revolution’s fourth dam is the celebrated mare Fanfreluche
(Northern Dancer), a racing champion who became a renowned
producer.
Fanfreluche is the second dam of leading international sire Holy
Roman Emperor and third dam of champion Australian sire Flying
Spur so Russian Revolution comes from a family which can produce
highly successful sires.

Fee: $TBA
Currently competing at the Queensland Winter Carnival, Spieth has
been a little unlucky not to have a Group One success on his CV but he
has several more opportunities to add one before he retires.
The handsome stallion has twice gone close when second in the VRC
Stakes and the VRC Lightning Stakes to Terravista, His record at time
of writing is 17 starts for five wins and four seconds to earn $626,600
which shows he is a top grade sprinter.
Spieth’s three victories in Sydney were highlighted by his most
important success in the City Tattersalls Lightning (Listed, 1100m)
at Randwick while another excellent performance was in finishing
second, beaten a length, to Redzel in last spring’s ATC Concorde
Stakes (Gr. 3, 1000m) run in a sizzling 56.23.
Thorn Park, Spieth’s now deceased sire, did very well at stud in New
Zealand, leaving 29 stakes winners headed by real stars in Jimmy
Choux and Ocean Park, both now standing at stud across the Tasman
and doing well as sires, while two of his other high class winners were
Veyron and Norzita.
A member of the wonderful Denise’s Joy family, Thorn Park had great
depth in his pedigree as does Spieth’s dam, imported Stella Livia, who
comes from a renowned female line developed by E.P. Taylor at his
Windfields Farm in Canada.

Stella Livia won two races and has produced two other winners,
notably Travencore, successful in Sydney.
She is a half-sister to German Group One winner Ransom o’War and
to seven other winners bred by Sombreffe, a half-sister to stakes
winners Russian Bond, Cristofori, Crossover and Snaadee (Danzig), a
successful sire when he stood at Emirates Park some years ago.
Also from this family is Group One winner Charm Spirit who currently
shuttles to New Zealand.
