Horse Description:

SMART MISSILE has all the hallmarks to indicate he’ll match his dam’s terrific racetrack performance at the very least.

Smart Missile, a son of the champion stallion FASTNET ROCK, was simply outstanding in his two-year-old season, being the only horse to defeat the top colt SEPOY before bad luck prevented him from taking his place in the Golden Slipper.

Smart Missile proved superior to Sepoy and FOXWEDGE in the Group 2 Todman Stakes before returning at three to prove too good for HELMET in the Group 2 Run To The Rose before a fighting second in the Group 1 Golden Rose.

Smart Missile’s pedigree shows he was always going to be a star on the track before becoming a force at stud with his dam being a US-bred half sister to the super racehorse and wonderful sire before his untimely passing NORTHERN METEOR.

Smart Missile produced a stakes winner in his first few runners when SASSY ‘N’ SMART was too good for her opposition in New Zealand while Smart Amelia was also stakes placed for the Arrowfield Stud sire.

Annlea is a daughter of the Group I Golden Slipper winner CANNY LAD, a simply brilliant two-year-old that was good enough to finish third to Better Loosen Up in a Cox Plate before his great career a stud that resulted in him being the damsire to the amazing sire REDOUTE’S CHOICE as will as the top class racehorses DESERT WAR, MNEMOSYNE and MANHATTAN RAIN.
