Hit It A Bomb, winner of the 2015 Breeders' Cup Juvenile Turf, will shuttle from Spendthrift Farm in Kentucky to the stud's Australian base, where he will stand at a fee of A$8,800.

Spendthrift Australia will also stand Swear, the stakes-winning son of Redoute’s Choice.

Garry Cuddy, general manager of Spendthrift Australia, said: "We have a lot of big things on the horizon as we continue to grow our brand.

"We are particularly looking forward to standing our first colonial stallion Swear, who was a standout yearling at the sales for us. Swear lived up to his looks on the racetrack, and we invite everyone to come out and take a look at him. You won’t be disappointed.

"We are also enthused to offer breeders a new young shuttler with serious pedigree and race record. Hit It A Bomb is a son of a world-renowned sire from a wonderful running family. He was a Grade 1-winning two-year-old on turf with a big turn of foot, and we believe breeders are going to really like him."

Hit It a Bomb became the only Breeders' Cup winner for War Front when overcoming a wide draw at Keeneland.

Trained by Aidan O'Brien, Hit It A Bomb was undefeated from three runs in Ireland and the US as a two-year-old. Out of the stakes-winning Sadler's Wells mare Liscanna, Hit It A Bomb is a sister to the Cheveley Park heroine Brave Anna.

Having being bought for A$725,000 at the Inglis Easter Yearling Sale, Swear won on debut as a juvenile and was a stakes-winning three-year-old. He captured the Group 3 Ming Dynasty Quality Stakes, making him the first Spendthrift Australia yearling purchase to become a stakes winner in the farm's colours.

Swear is by Redoute's Choice, whose list of stallion sons includes Not A Single Doubt, Snitzel and Stratum, out of the champion New Zealand two-year-old filly Crossyourheart.

Trained by Michael, Wayne and John Hawkes, Swear retires to Spendthrift Australia at a fee of A$8,250.
