The son of ill-fated G1 winning sire Thorn Park missed taking out the G1 Newmarket Handicap and G1 Darley Classic by the narrowest of margins during his racing career.

Spieth Horseform will stand for a fee of $16,500 incl GST in 2018.


Being by Thorn Park out of a Titus Livius mare, Spieth represents an outcross sire for commercial Australian breeders,

The fastest son of Thorn Park and a mirror image of his sire, Spieth hails from the family of champion sires Encosta de Lago and Flying Spur and leading European first season sire Charm Spirit.

“Spieth retires as one of the unluckiest sprinters in recent times. We will be committing 30 of our very best mares to him including the dam of recent Stradbroke Handicap winner Santa Ana Lane," said Aquis CEO Shane McGrath.

"He will be limited to a book of 175 mares in his first season. There won’t be a better looking or better value first season sire in the Hunter this year."

The five-year-old joined the Lindsay Park stable after being purchased by Aquis Farm after his spring campaign.

Spieth won five of his 18 starts including the Listed City Tatt’s Lightning at Randwick in 2016

Spieth was raced in partnership by international and local breeders including Raffles Racing, Rothwell Park, G1G Racing and Breeding, Evergreen Stud and Sledmere Stud and their support will give him every opportunity to succeed at stud.
