Group Two-winning sprinter Spill The Beans will become the first son of Australian champion sire Snitzel to stand in Europe.

Spill The Beans, who stands at Aquis Farm in Queensland, will shuttle to the National Stud in Newmarket next year.

A son of Redoute's Choice, Snitzel last season equalled the stakes record of 26 set by his grandsire Danehill.

Trained by Gerald Ryan for his breeder Arrowfield Stud, Spill The Beans won five of his 11 starts and was retired after claiming the 2016 Gr. 2 QTC Cup.

He will be joined at the National Stud in England in 2018 by this year's All Aged Stakes winner Tivaci, who is serving his first season at Waikato Stud.
