Group One Boom for Eureka

The McAlpine family’s Eureka Stud has a long history and an illustrious list of winners under their  banner as breeders.

But recent super success came in the name of Temple of Boom, who landed the Gr 1 Galaxy (1,100m) at Randwick on Oaks Day in April. For Eureka it was a walk down memory lane on that track, as Eureka-breds’ Just Now won the AJC Oaks in 1975 and Eureka Jewel ran second in that race in 1996.

Temple of Boom (by former Eureka sire Piccolo), added to the memories at racing’s elite level when he sprinted away to honour Toowoomba trainer Tony Gollan and young gun hoop James McDonald with their first Gr 1 glory.

Bred, raised and sold by Eureka, Temple of Boom a $40,000 purchase at 2008 Magic Millions Gold Coast Yearling Sale, alongside his half-brother Spirit of Boom have combined earnings over $1.7 million. Their eight-time winner and SW dam Temple Spirit, was both Gollan-trained and Eureka-bred.

Eureka-branded and bred winners are plenty. Raised on the rich black soils of the Darling Downs, with old-fashioned horsemanship and hard work has paid and paved the way for continued success.

Gr 1 winners Picaday, Show A Heart, Scenic Peak, Skalato,  Just Now, Gr 2 winners Eureka Jewel, Express Air, Memphis Blues, Scenic Warrior, Palatious , Bernalla, Herosim,  and Alma Mater (dam of Savannah Success and granddam of Savabeel) all  products of  Eureka - families and paddocks. Just to name a handful.

Stallion success stories for Eureka include the most notable Semipalatinsk, the ill-fated Brave Warrior and Piccolo.  Red Dazzler now holds the reins at Eureka, recently making his mark as leading QLD sire last season on earnings and top of list in Nation on number of winners.  With his oldest as 3 year-olds they represent him well, as he sits 5th on Australia’s second season sire list.

With such a success story, surely waiting in the wings or grazing on the “Downs”,  is another “boom” horse, by Red Dazzler or not, but bred and raised by Eureka !


Red Dazzler - five winners in five days

Queensland's leading first season sire of last season, Red Dazzler, continues to shine with winners.

Five winners in five days  across three states and in Singapore.

On the back of four times Singapore winner, El Milagro came Golden Prince, who won impressively at Kranji by 4.8 lengths. 

Other winners last week for the "Dazzler” included Dazzle Us at Doomben, trained by Daniel Wheeler and Typhoon Red first start 3yo winner by 6 lengths in Toowoomba. Trained by Kevin Kemp.

Red Dazzler sits 8th on Australia's Second Sire list by earnings and is equal second on the same list by winners with 25 to his credit, which is more than popular sires Artie Schiller (USA), Written Tycoon, Ad Valorem (USA) and Nadeem. 

Red Dazzler's service  for 2012  $9,900 (inc gst).

Spirit of Boom bred and owned by Eureka won GCTC Magic Millions Cup

Spirit of Boom by Sequalo is a half-brother to Gr 1 winner Temple of Boom.

Eureka rolls through the ages

One of Queensland’s foundation studs, ‘Eureka’ owned by the McAlpine family,  as a 70-year history in the tradition of breeding winners and standing signature  stallions.

As we roll into the next decade of breeding and racing in Queensland, Scott McAlpine with his three sons (fourth generation) runs the reins at Eureka and history repeats.

Red Dazzler has become the next best thing at Eureka and indeed Queensland, with him rolling out the winners in his first crop. Already, the colonial bred son of Red Ransom from the Australian champion families of Vain and Toltrice, has made his mark in the ring and on the track. With his first crop runners currently winning and his yearling averages remaining high. 2010 average at Magic Millions Premier was $85,000, selling up to $180,000, while 2011 Magic Millions Premier average was $138,333.

Eureka, a solid vendor at the Magic Millions sales since inception, brings another top quality draft to the QTIS 600 sale including 16 lots by Red Dazzler. After a stellar 2011 MM Premier sales performance where the Red Dazzlers’ sold up to $165,000, Eureka expects his progeny to sell well. Especially in light of his racetrack successes where his first crop winners so far were Eureka born and raised. Red Dazzler presently sits amongst the top performing first season sires in Australia.

Can he emulate the feats of the Eureka sires before him, the likes of Semipalatinsk,  Brave Warrior, Piccolo, and over the years Lumley Road, Midnight Cowboy, Emerillo and Messmate?

Eureka have turned out the winners (at a ratio of 80 per cent winners to runners) raised on the Darling Downs property, via hard-working horsemanship and family kinship handed down through the ages, beginning with Andy McAlpine in 1935, through to Colin, Scott and now his sons Harry, Angus and Charlie.

Most recent Eureka bred stakes winners include current runners Temple of Boom and Spirit of Boom. Then Express Air (Gr 2 QTC Guineas), not to mention Group winning Eureka raised who have made a mark at stud, Show A Heart (sire), Alma Mater (grand dam of sire Savabeel), Palatious (dam of Blue Diamond SW Danelagh, Just Now (AJC Oaks winner), Our Today (dam of Group 1 winner Now Is The Day) and multiple AJC SW Eureka Jewel, to name just a few.

For Eureka there is no giving up. Old fashioned hard work and horsemanship is the foundation to continue their role in breeding rock solid runners, sales horses, and now Red Dazzler winners. As the years roll on the next McAlpine generation learns the ropes to lead the way into the next decade of stud success.
