The most successful son of Spill The Beans, Ellsberg, is something of a people’s horse. Highly consistent from his debut win at three all the way to a record-breaking Five Diamonds win 24 starts later, he will now look to carry the legacy of his own sire, who died within days of siring his first winner in October 2019.

The busiest sire in Australia in his own debut season, Spill The Beans produced 144 live foals from that 2016 season. One of those was the chestnut colt out of General Nediym mare Love Of Liberty, a sister to Group 3 winner Electric General, who would go on to be named Ellsberg.
