Eureka Stud-based stallion Spirit Of Boom (Sequalo) sired his 12th stakes winner when the Steven O'Dea-trained Jami Lady (4 m ex Bevico Girl by Easy Rocking) ran out a ready winner of the Bright Shadow Handicap (Listed, 1200m) at Eagle Farm. 

The four-year-old scooted home impressively to beat Fiesta (I Am Invincible) by two and a quarter lengths, while Pennino (Easy Rocking) finished another neck further back in third. 

"She has been so consistent and always puts in," O'Dea said.

"I have always felt that she would be best when she could take a sit. But as she has matured she has been able to lead if need be as you saw today."

O'Dea said Jami Lady would now head to the Gai Waterhouse (Listed, 1350m) at Ipswich on July 18.

"It will see whether she can win past 1200 metres in the 1350 metres of that race. If she can it opens up the opportunities for her."

The four-year-old mare is the only winner out of four-time winner Bevico Girl (Easy Rocking) and she is the first stakes winner for three generations of her family. 

Jami Lady's fourth dam is Western Australian Oaks (Gr 1, 2400m) winner Hasty Departure (Red Anchor), who in turn produced Group 2 winner Royale Exit (Chief's Crown). 

Hasty Departure is also the grandam of Group 3 winner Brorama Star (Brocco) and Listed-winning quartet Journey (Jeune), Verossi (Verglas), Lim's Objective (O'Reilly) and Zero Drama (Danzero). 

O'Dea - in conjunction with Proven Thoroughbreds - purchased the mare's Statue Of Liberty (Storm Cat) half-sister for $80,000 at the 2019 Magic Millions March Gold Coast Yearling Sale. 

In 2019 the mare produced a filly by Coolmore Stud's Pride Of Dubai (Street Cry) and she has most recently been covered by Telemon Thoroughbreds-based sire Sidestep (Exceed And Excel). 

Spirit Of Boom's stakes winners are headed by Group 3-winning pair Boomsara and Spirits Aubeer and he will stand the 2020 season for a fee of $44,000 (inc GST).
