Australian born Newmarket Bloodstock agent Stuart Boman enjoyed a successful weekend ‘down under’ with a dual state double.
Boman acts as a co-host on Ontrack’s Royal Ascot Tours and also plays a role with Ontrack to identify potential European horses in training suitable for the Australian market.
An associate partner in Blandford Bloodstock, Stuart attends most of the world's leading thoroughbred sales providing clients with valuable dual hemisphere knowledge.
On Saturday, two purchases Boman made on behalf of Blandford Bloodstock clients were in the winner’s stall with Positive Peace completing a hat-trick for Bjorn Baker at Rosehill and Quality Seeker scoring easily at Eagle Farm for Ciaron Maher and David Eustace.
Quality Seeker was purchased by Stuart for Chinese owner Zhiqiang An who races a large number of horses around the world under his Golden East Horse banner.
The American bred horse raced formerly in the UK, winning 1 of 8 starts under Ed Walker before being secured as a tried horse by Boman to do his future racing in Australia.
Quality Seeker was sent North to Queensland by Maher/Eustace after the training duo established that the horse was no good the Melbourne way of going, having failed badly at Moonee Valley last start.
The promising two-year-old Wisdom Of Water (by Headwater) has been another success story for Boman and his Golden East Horse this season.
Secured by Boman at the 2019 Magic Millions Sale for just $70,000 from Eureka Stud, Wisdom of Water has been a metropolitan Saturday winner this season in Brisbane, before finishing 4th in the Magic Millions 2yo Classic for Gold Coast trainers Toby and Trent Edmonds.
Positive Peace is a mare by Stratum from the Reset mare Warpath and Ontrack bought a half-brother her at the June Magic Millions Yearling Sale.
The colt is a grey by Not A Single Doubt and is now a two-year-old. He has had a brief preparation with Toby and Trent Edmonds on the Gold Coast and is now spelling in readiness for a new bout of pre-training in March.
