Horse Description:

Trainers Mathew Ellerton and Simon Zahra found the brilliant filly Smart Coupe in Tasmania and this yearling by POET’S VOICE, a son of the international star stallion DUBAWI, is set to show plenty of speed when she hits the track.

POET’S VOICE was a Group 2 winner over 7 furlongs (1400m) as a two-year-old before returning at three to score at Group 1 level over a mile in the Queen Elizabeth II Stakes at Ascot, beating a field that contained RIP VAN WINKLE and MAKFI.

The stallion has produced the Group 2 Roman Consul Stakes winner VIRIDINE as well as the NSW stakes winner MY COUNTRY and TRAP FOR FOOLS, a dual Listed winner in Perth.

This fine filly comes from a terrific international family as a daughter of the US-bred but French stakes placegetter Sabkha, a daughter of GREEN DESERT, that has already produced the Melbourne Listed winner ZUBBAYA and six other winners from six foals to race.
