Smart Missile X Sonic Queen

Sire: Smart Missile

Dam: Sonic Queen

Colour: Bay

Gender: Filly

Age: 2 year old

Foaled: Aug 28th, 2017

Country: New Zealand

Horse Description:

Ellerton Zahra Racing has had terrific 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.

Smart Missile was terrific on the track. A son of Fastnet Rock, Smart Missile only had six starts but created an enormous impressing, 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.

But luck deserted him in the 2011 Golden Slipper when 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, bought in New Zealand, is out of the Lope De Vega mare Sonic Queen and features a host of stakes performers in both Australia and South Africa. She has been to the breakers and had a look at EZR’s Flemington operation so her education has begun in earnest.
