90% SOLD! An early running type by Smart Missile out of a Group 1 winning 2YO mare. He is a half brother to SEEKING ASYLUM who was purchased by Elite Thoroughbreds – she went on to be a city winner of 4 races as a 2YO from just 5 starts!

Purchased from this years Magic Millions yearling sale, he is out of G1 winning 2YO, ASYLUM SEEKER, who has had six foals to race for six winners, including our very own, Seeking Asylum.

SMART MISSILE is currently one of the country’s most consistent stallions, having sired the likes of Stakes winners Maid In Heaven, Missile Mantra & Ballistic Boy.

He will be nominated for the Magic Millions race series and Golden Slipper.

2.5% = $2,925 – 5% = $5,850 – = $8,775 -10% = $11,700

The above share prices include GST on purchase, sale expenses, Inglis race series & Golden Slipper nominations, breaking in & education, syndicate & registration fees until June 2022. Insurance is also included in the share price until January 2023.

This colt will be trainer by Multiple Group One winning trainer, Gary Portelli. Portelli has trained the likes of Golden Slipper winner She Will Reign, Rebel Dane & Sejarden as well as Elite Thoroughbreds Stakes winners Testashadow, Sebring Sun, Straturbo & I’m All The Talk.

Dr Brett Warren conducted a physical, full x-ray review and scope pre-purchase. He was deemed as low risk.

We estimate that the following should be budgeted based on upkeep of the horse, being approximately $50k per year. This budget takes into account training fees, spelling fees, stable vet visits, floating cost & management fees. To ensure transparency, owners will be billed directly by suppliers according to shareholding. Figures provided below are overestimated:

2.5% = $30 per week over the course of the year

5% = $60 per week over the course of the year

7.5% = $90 per week over the course of the year

10% = $120 per week over the course of the year

Sale Comments: A real ‘up and run’ 2YO type. He was close to the top of the ‘shopping list’ as he resembles Seeking Asylum in many ways. Will not be surprised if he gets up and runs early,

Current Status: Currently being broken in at Bimbadeen Park..
