to purchase this filly if she ticked all our boxes. She did this and more.
This filly vetted out without any issues. She has a terrific presence and I fell in love with her the moment I inspected her.
Brave Smash presents a different profile to the other Japanese horses standing in Australia. Firstly, he was a fast precocious 2yo; winning twice. He was trained as a stayer as a young horse in Japan but once he came to Australia was eventually trained as a sprinter winning the Group 1 MVRC Manikato Stakes and MRC Futurity Stakes. He was also placed twice in Victoria's top sprint, The VRC Newmarket Stakes, and was 3rd in the ATC Everest. These are amongst our best sprint races.
I first started to take notice of them at the Magic Millions National Weanling Sale last year where I purchased a colt by Brave Smash out of the More Than Ready mare, More For Me. He has developed into a stunning horse and is with Lewis Page being broken in. Lewis is an excellent judge and has given the colt a high rating.
I was keen to secure another Brave Smash yearling at the earlier sales this year but the ones I liked were bringing more than I was prepared to pay for them. They fetched up to $260,000 at the Gold Coast Magic Millions in January.
This filly is out of the Street Cry mare Rambla De Flores. I purchased the first foal out of the mare at the 2020 Magic Millions National Sale. John Thompson trains her with her being by Pariah. She has come along nicely without any pressure being applied to her. I like Pariah but they were never going to be early 2yo's.
Street Cry is one of the world's great sires and broodmare sires. Street Cry is the sire of the great mare Winx.
As a broodmare sire, Street Cry has had a massive impact here in Australia with the Group 1 winners September Run, Con Te Partiro, Farnan, Pounami, Cascadian, Lyre and Daumier being out of his daughters. In total, there have been 182 stakes horses out of his daughters. This is out of 1637 starters. Any strike rate above 10% is exceptional.
Rambla De Flores is out of the stakes winning Anabaa mare Great Anna with the 3rd dam being the Sir Stristram stakes winning mare Great Vintage. She won the Group 2 Herbert Power Stakes and was placed 4th in the Melbourne Cup.
She is a ¾ sister to Riverina Charm which won four Group 1 races in the STC Rosehill Guineas, VRC 1000 Guineas, STC Canterbury Guineas, AuRC NZ Stakes. She was also placed in races including the VRC Oaks, AJC Surround Stakes and AJC Flight Stakes.
This filly comes from a great running family and heads to Kris Lees who trained Brave Smash.
There is an awful lot to like about this filly.
