Smart Missile X The Fairy's Kiss
2 year old Bay Colt
Sire: Smart Missile Dam: The Fairy's Kiss
Ellerton Zahra Racing has done extremely well to secure this terrific colt by SMART MISSILE out of a proven stakes producer.
SMART MISSILE only raced at two but he was an outstanding racehorse, going through unbeaten in a two-year-old season that included a win over the season’s champion two-year-old SEPOY and the subsequent Group 1 winner FOXWEDGE. SMART MISSILE returned at three to beat FOXWEDGE and HELMET in the Group 3 Run To The Rose before injury ended his career at the end of his spring three-year-old campaign.
A son of FASTNET ROCK, like successful sires FOXWEDGE and YOUR SONG, SMART MISSILE has proven himself a consistent sire of regular winners around the country, including stakes performers MAID OF HEAVEN, I’LL HAVE A BIT and the brilliant SMART MELODY.
This colt is out of the stakes-placed ELUSIVE QUALITY mare The Fairy’s Kiss, a 1200m winner that was placed behind Group 1 winner PLATELET at Group 3 level. The Fairy’s Kiss has had two winners from three runners, including this season’s Merson Cooper Stakes winner STEAL MY KISSES and the five-time winner & stakes-placed Butch Kissidy.
This colt’s grand-dam is the Group 2 winner BALLET SOCIETY and he hails from the same family as champion New Zealand galloper CENT HOME as well as the Turnbull Stakes winner STUDEBAKER.
This colt is by a proven stallion out of a female family full of stakes performers and his looks match his super pedigree.
