Smart Missile

22,000 inc gst
Rated the best juvenile by Fastnet Rock. Unbeaten at two winning the Breeder’s Plate and then the G2 Todman. At three, a G3 winner and a close second in the G1 Golden Rose. Now the sire of G1 winner Maid Of Heaven, G1 placed Missile Mantra and G2 winners Smart Melody and I’ll Have A Bit
Smart Missile – higher-rated than his dam’s half-brother Northern Meteor – is from one of the great stallion-making families of the modern thoroughbred: the Rough Shod clan of Sadler’s Wells, Fairy King and Nureyev.
'A striking horse. A good size, slightly bigger than average, a lovely shape with length and power through both his shoulders and hindquarters. He moves efficiently and has a strong, masculine head with a kind eye. Plenty of bone, tidy through his knees and has good feet. Quite big, but so well-balanced.' Olly Tait
Impressive on debut. Devastating when he stepped up to G2 company against the cream of an especially talented crop. Then back at three for a major trial win – again, humbling multiple G1 winners. Smart Missile’s raw talent: unmissable...

One of Australia’s best young sires. Consistently in the Top 10 by winners and earnings. A yearling average of $80,000 for 73 sold in 2018 with huge crops yet to come.
