After Spilt (Choisir x Mycup Runneth Over) claimed the 2YO feature Northam reflected on the first time he laid eyes on the then-colt at the White Park sale in Scone 12 months earlier.

“He was a typical Choisir and had a remarkably similar build to Big Money – another son of Choisir – so I decided to buy him,’’ Northam said of the Lauri Macri-bred youngster.

“From that point on we targeted this race and it’s always a great feeling when long-term plans come off.’’

Northam said he hoped Spilt could turn out “half as good as Big Money’’, a fellow Scone Sale graduate who won five stakes races and more than $800,000.

Vendor Rae-Louise Farmer of Fernrigg Farm described Spilt as “such a dude’’.

“He was the best horse to prep for a sale, nothing was even an issue, he was such a good doer and I always thought he’d make it as a 2YO,’’ Farmer said.

“This is a great result for the farm.’’
