Spontaneous success


Tough five-year-old Spontaneous outclassed his rivals in the 2000m handicap at Geelong on Tuesday.
Jumping well and taking an early lead, the consistent bay was always travelling well – Glen Boss (who celebrated his birthday last weekend) giving him rein at the top of the straight.
Kicking clear, he was strong on the line – proving a soft 1.3 lengths too strong for runner-on Blackbriar.
“He really wanted to find the line,” Boss reported, “that win should give him a nice confidence boost.”
A warmly supported favourite on the back of a gutsy Flemington third, Spontaneous has now won three races and over $150,000 in stakes for owners, the Karreman Racing Syndicate.
Gr.1 placed as a younger horse in New Zealand, Spontaenous is a son of the Irish bred Danehill stallion Spartacus out of the unraced Grosvenor mare Solanto. A half sister to the stakes placed Soelin she has as her grandam the Gr.1 winning Sobig mare Soliloquy - dam of the triple Gr.1 winner Solveig, in turn dam of the stakes winners Greig and Lady Solvil (dam of the dual Listed winner Lady Of The Desert).
Spontaneous can also count amongst his relations the big race winners Gallic, Cross Swords, Deferment, Culminate, Capitvate and Master O'Reilly.
