Horse Description:

Ellerton Zahra Racing continue to rack up the winners with the progeny of SMART MISSILE and have unearthed this terrific late-season ownership opportunity by the former brilliant two-year-old.

Ellerton Zahra Racing has had a hot run of success with Smart Missile’s stock in recent seasons with Smart Coupe becoming a stakes performer while his daughters Propelle and Club Tropicana have also made the grade as city winners.

Recent EZR winners by Smart Missile include the promising filly Lianne and the city performer Josephine Sea, who have shown the trainers have unlocked the secret to getting the best out of his stock.

A son of Fastnet Rock, Smart Missile was simply brilliant on the track. Smart Missile only had six starts but displayed plenty of class winning his first three starts, including becoming the only horse to beat Sepoy in his two-year-old season in the Group 2 Todman Stakes.

Sadly, Smart Missile didn’t get the chance to run in the Golden Slipper after he was scratched at the barrier.

Smart Missile returned at three to beat Foxwedge and Helmet in the Group 3 Run To The Rose before injury brought a premature end to his racing career. Smart Missile is also closely related to the outstanding sprinter Northern Meteor and has produced Group 1 winner Maid Of Heaven as well as Group 2 winner I’ll Have A Bit and Smart Melody.

This filly’s dam is the RESET mare Savsenga, a three-time winner over short trips in Queensland that has produced a NSW 1400m winner and another son by Hinchinbrook that is showing promise in Hong Kong.

Another half-sister was placed in a Randwick trial in early May and looks set to hit the track in the coming weeks.

Reset mares have shown the ability to produce a variety of types, including the speed machine HOUTZEN and the Grade 2-placed Space Talk, who ran third in a smart race in the US last month.
