Chinny Boom not for sale at any price: By Tony McMahon
Published 4 October 2022
Despite offers of “name your price” Chinchilla owner Mark Pascoe has no intention of selling his sensational filly Chinny Boom which shattered the Callaghan Park, Rockhampton course record today (Tuesday, October 4).
Pascoe confirmed this after his unbeaten Clinton Taylor trained filly scored an effortless 8.25 lengths romp becoming most likely the shortest priced race winner in the history of Callaghan Park TAB racing by winning at $1.07.
Even those official odds were a luxury considering Chilly Boon paid money back for a win and place dividend of $1.00 on the Queensland TAB.
Without doubt Chinny Boom (b f 3 Spirit Of Boom-Imanoremiss x Made of Gold) previously a decisive winner of her only three starts at Rockhampton, Townsville and Mackay is an exceptional talent.
After her demolition of the four horses contested $38K QTIS 3YO Handicap (1050m), winning jockey Ashley Butler, who had an armchair ride on Chinny Boom, revealed she had “another gear” left to offer.
Even though Butler never extended Chinny Boom on the grass track rated a Slow 5, she shattered the long-standing track record of 59.37 seconds established by Say I Won’t in November 2014 on a Good 3.
Chinny Boom ran 58.59 seconds while zipping home the last 600 metres in an extraordinary time of 32.24 seconds while Butler never encouraged or persuaded her to go any faster.
This raised the question what time would Chilly Boom have registered if fully extended?
“The biggest cash money I have been offered was $400,000. However, I have also taken calls from bloodstock agents to buy her while not stipulating a price.
They have said “tell us your price”, Pascoe said from Chinchilla not long after watching the win.
This the passionate owner and breeder did on his phone from his work Ute at Nutrient Ag Solutions during his lunch hour.
However, Pascoe also the breeder of Chinny Boom said he had turned down all the offers.
“I want to keep her and race her myself”, he confirmed.
He is in the fortunate position of having bred a half-sister to Chinny Boom a yearling by Encryption which will be sold at a Magic Millions Yearling Sale next year.
“Her mother Imanoremiss, lives at Eureka Stud, Cambooya and she is ready to drop (foal) a full relative to Chinny Boom”, he revealed.
The news that Chinny Boom so named as “Chinny, a shortened term for Chinchilla and that she is a daughter of Spirit Of Boom, is not for sale was joy to the ears for premier trainer Clinton Taylor.
“That’s good. I just don’t know how good this filly is. I have nothing that will go with her on the training tracks. She is by far the best horse I have trained. She will go to Brisbane next start now but they are always hard to win there. She will have to probably step up to a 1200 metres race’’, he said.
While Chinny Boom has won under her own steam using her natural brilliant cruising speed by leading, Taylor believes the best of her will be seen when she can be positioned just in behind the lead.
“I think we will see something really special then”, Clinton said.
That could well come about on Saturday, October 22 at Doomben when Chinny Boon may make her city debut in a $127,500 QTIS 3YO Fillies Handicap (1200m).
As an aside Clinton Taylor also trained a full sister to Chinny Boom named Holdin’ My Own with whom he won four races with at Emerald and Rockhampton.
