The 2013 The Shorts will take place under set weight plus penalty conditions and is open to horses aged three-years old and upwards.

Scheduled to run as part of George Main Stakes Day, the race shares its program with the Group 1 George Main Stakes, Group 2 Tea Rose Stakes, Group 2 Hill Stakes, Group 3 Bill Ritchie Handicap and Listed Heritage Stakes.

Gun Queensland gelding Spirit Of Boom is scheduled to begin his spring racing campaign in the 2013 Spring Stakes.

Spirit Of Boom has won six of his 40 race starts and has earned more than $1 million in prize money during his horse racing career.

The Sequalo entire placed fourth in his most recent start in the Group 1 Stradbroke Handicap at Eagle Farm Racecourse on June 8, 2013.

Spirit Of Boom failed to win a race during his autumn and winter campaign, however, consistently featured in some of the top races of the carnivals.

Trainer Tony Gollan believes Spirit Of Boom will be back to his best in the race.

“I’ve had so much trouble with ‘Spirit’ for more than 12 months, but we’ve got him right now,” Gollan told TVN.

“He’s in terrific shape, this time he has come back really well and I’m looking to a big prep from him.

“This is the best I’ve probably ever had him and I’m expecting some good things from him this time in work.”
