Caulfield Cup Boom Time!

What a family thrill. Landing the BMW Caulfield Cup was extra special for David Hayes.

Now training in partnership with son Ben and nephew Tom Dabernig, this win gave Lindsay Park its fourth Caulfield Cup over three generations of the Hayes family training dynasty.

David's father Colin won the stable’s first Caulfield Cup in 1976 with How Now and David followed up with Fraar in 1993 and Tawqeet 2006.

The 6YO entire Boom Time (Flying Spur-Bit Of A Ride, by Snippets) landed the biggest prize of his career and one of David’s biggest thrills in racing with an upset win in the $3 million Gr 1 Caulfield Cup (2400m) defeating Single Gaze & Johannes Vermeer.

David not only trains him but David owns him. “It’s been one of my greatest moments, it’s not often you own them and also train them to win a major, but also to train him with my son and nephew. It’s the stuff dreams are made of."

Jockey Cory Parish, from Seymour who is loyal to the stable and rides track work at Euroa scored the win of his life. This being his first ever Group victory.

Boom Time has now won seven and placed in nine of his 32 career starts, amassing prize money earnings of $2,459,025.

Originally raced in West Australia by breeder, Kim Loxton, after the colt was passed in for $65,000 at the 2013 Perth Magic Millions Yearling Sale. Boom Time won for the first time at his 13th attempt, in the Listed Melvista Stakes.

Boom Time is one of three winners from the 7-time winner, Bit of a Ride, who is, in turn, a daughter of renowned speed source, Snippets.

Bit of a Ride is a three quarter sister in blood to Group Two winning sprinter Scandinavia, the dam of Group One winning sprinter and sire, Magnus. Hmmmm...bred to be a SPEEDY stayer indeed.
