New Syndication with Tony Gollan
Team Thoroughbred’s offers this outstanding Colt By First Season Sire, Kiss and Make Up.
Selected with the assistance of well respected horse selector, Grandview Stud’s Michael Grieves from the Magic
Millions National Weanling sale in May, this colt was offered as part of the Aquis Farm draft.
The colt has since grown out at Grieve’s property in Queensland and he’s furnished in a nice type
as expected by Team Thoroughbreds principal Terry Robinson.
This Bay Colt is out of a two-time winner Silencio and is that mares third living foal, having
produced two foals that have raced, both have earned connections prizemoney, one of them, Not
a Sound, is a winner of three races.
By Kiss and Make Up, a young horse that won two races from just three racetrack appearances, one of those
wins was in the Group 2 ATC Todman Slipper (1200 m.) when the juvenile defeated subsequent Golden
Slipper winner Capitalist by a healthy two-lengths.
Kiss and Make Up is by More Than Ready a stallion that is renowned worldwide siring more
than 1,790 individual winners. Out of the Group 1 AJC Flight and Sires’ Produce Stakes winner
Fashions Afield (by Redoute’s Choice) in-turn the dam of the stakes placed Paris Match (by
Street Cry). Fashions Afield earned top-honours at the end of her juvenile season in 2004-05,
being the winner of four races, before retiring as a five-year-old with six wins, nine placings and
more than $1.9 in prizemoney.
About the Trainer
Tony Gollan keeps breaking records the first was when he cemented his place in Queensland
racing history, at the conclusion of the 2014-15 racing season, when he broke Bruce
McLachlan’s long-standing record of 78 metropolitan wins.
At the end of the 2018/19 season Gollan celebrated another milestone when he was crowned
the states leading conditioner for a sixth time. Tony acknowledges the journey he has travelled
since reviving his training career in 2003.
Gollan collected his second premiership which followed a break-through season where he was
ably assisted by the Group One-winning half-brothers Spirit of Boom (by Sequalo) and Temple
of Boom (by Piccolo) however it would be unfair to say Gollan’s march toward the top of his
profession was solely down to the “Boom Brothers”.
All up last season Gollan trained 136 winners Australia wide earning connections more than
$6.3 million. Within his home state’s metropolitan area, he finished 36 ahead of his nearest rival.
Now with another trainers’ title firmly in the rear-vision mirror Gollan is looking to build on his
success in black-type races after gallopers under his care won eight of those tough races during
the 2018/19 season headed by I’m A Rippa in the Group 3 George Moore Stakes, Perudo and
Outback Barbie won the Listed Bill Carter and Mode Stakes, respectively, for good measure
both are by his former star galloper, Spirit of Boom. Gollan saddled up the Listed Queensland
Day Stakes winner Vega One, Coldstone to win the Listed Brisbane Handicap and Prime
Minister’s Cup and Most Important collected a 10th career and final victory in the Listed Keith
Noud Stakes before being retired at seasons end by connections.
As of mid-December 2019, Gollan is well placed on the Queensland premiership standings
heading the metropolitan premiership with a healthy lead of more than 30 saddling up 48-1/2
individual winners which have earned connections more than $2.1million. Australia wide he is a
mere 42 winners behind Chris Waller who has chalked up 90.5 winners, and is ahead of James
Cummings, Tony & Calvin McEvoy, Peter & Paul Snowden and Gai Waterhouse & Adrian Bott.
Spirit of Boom is clearly the most successful galloper Gollan has trained as the stallion provided
him with successes in the 2014 Group 1 MVRC William Reid Stakes and the BRC Doomben
10,000, while Temple of Boom, the older of the pair won the 2012 ATC Galaxy at Randwick
after wins at Group 2, Group 3 and Listed level. While both Booms brothers enhanced Gollan’s
reputation the premierships equally focus a bright light on his horsemanship skill too.
