Absolutely Smashing First Foals

In Bloodstock & Breeding, Brave Smash, Farm News by Dane Squance

When Australian Bloodstock’s Jamie Lovett contacted Aquis to let us know his feelings on the first crop of foals of dual Gr.1 winner BRAVE SMASH (JPN), the team were over the moon with his feedback.

“Based on the foals that we have seen to date, we have switched over a further five mares to Brave Smash. To date we have bred four robust, well-muscled, correct colts. We could not have wished for a better start,” stated Lovett.

Then more and more breeders continued to echo those sentiments including Davali Thoroughbred’s Alison Hush.

“The Brave Smash foal from Mead is a good size with plenty of strength and quality about him. He shows great scope and athleticism to develop as he matures. He has good bone and conformation, it’s hard to knock him on anything really. We are expecting quite a few Brave Smash foals this season and we will be very happy if they are all as good as this colt.”

Another high quality judge is Middlebrook Valley Lodge’s Verna Metcalfe, who was effusive in her praise of the Brave Smash x Meri Rani filly foaled in mid August, and as you can see from the below clip, she is an outstanding example of the quality Brave Smash is throwing.

As the only dual Gr.1-winning sprinter from the Sunday Silence sire-line standing at stud in Australia, Brave Smash’s ability on the track was simply dominant, and it appears his first crop foals are continuing that trait.

With astute breeders continuing to heap praise on his outstanding first crop foals, Brave Smash looks more than capable of continuing the successful global success of Japanese bred stallions.

The fastest ever male winner of the Gr.1 Manikato Stakes and successful over fellow Japanese stallion Tosen Stardom in the Gr.1 Futurity Stakes, Brave Smash showed his tremendous turn of foot throughout his racetrack career, running top three in the inaugural Everest, as well as top class efforts in the Newmarket Handicap (twice), Moir Stakes and CF Orr Stakes – all at the elite level.
