SMART MISSILE/CERTAIN PROMISE is your very own Ready 2 Race filly. Bred from the world-class Arrowfield Stud, by one of the most sought after young sires in Australia and purchased from the most prestigious sale in the country, the Inglis Easter Yearling Sale, it was hard to miss this girl, and even harder to believe she was so inexpensive, purchased for only $100,000.

SMART MISSILE, sired by the game changing FASTNET ROCK, won the very first race for 2YO’s, the Listed Breeders’ Plate before going on to record victory in the Group 2 Todman Stakes, the Group 3 Run To The Rose and just missed in the Group 1 Golden Rose by a nose to Foxwedge. Smart Missile was one of the best two-year-old’s of his generation with a World Thoroughbred Ranking of 116, and he has mirrored his achievements on the race track with his success in the breeding barn having secured the First Season Sires’ Title with his progeny averaging $700,000 for his first crop. His progeny continue to be of the highest standard and are sought after by some of the best judges in the business world-wide.

In our view, he (Smart Missile) was clearly the best two-year-old of a stellar generation, with the best of him not seen at three. Smart Missile made the impossible look easy, and in our view it’s the X factor which separates the exceptional from the merely outstanding.” - John Messara (Arrowfield Stud)

This filly has an International pedigree boasting Black Type winners & producers. Her dam, Certain Promise is a Stakes producer and is the full sister to Group 1 winner in France, SPANISH MOON & Group 2 Royal Ascot winner, SPANISH SUN. This filly also reins from the family of BOURBON GIRL who was a winner at 2 and placed in the Group 1 Irish Oaks, The Oaks and the Yorkshire Oaks.

The Smart Missile/Certain Promise filly has just completed her second preparation here at Tulloch Lodge. She has done full pace work both on the dirt and grass tracks, she flew the barriers in her recent jumpout on the grass and she is now enjoying a well earned break before she returns and aims for her first official trial.

If you are looking for an out and out 2YO type, oozing precocity and an abundance of ability for a fraction of the cost, look no further.

Nothing in life is a CERTAINTY, but this filly has PROMISED an exciting future for her lucky owners.
