The Smart Missile Factor

Missile Factor

Duncan Ramage and Eagle Farm-based trainer Chris Anderson combined at the Inglis HTBA May Yearling Sale to secure an athletic colt by proven sire Smart Missile from the sprint-winning Bernardini mare, Admission.

Trained by Chris Anderson, Eagle Farm

This colt caught the eye of Duncan Ramage and trainer Chris Anderson at the Inglis HTBA May Yearling Sale. Purchased for $70,000 from Twin Hills Stud, he’s a strong, athletic type and very typical of what you’d expect to see in a son of Smart Missile.

Smart Missile is a stallion that has firmly established himself as one of Australia’s leading sires. He is consistently in the top 10 by winners, and his winners/runners strike rate sits at an impressive 70%.

His top progeny include G1 winner Maid Of Heaven, plus Group winners Smart Melody, I’ll Have a bit, Crosshaven, Missile Mantra and Ballistic Boy.

A $100,000 yearling purchase, Ballistic Boy is an excellent endorsement for DGR’s success with Smart Missile and Chris Anderson. He has won 9 races, including the G3 Rough Habit Plate and has banked more than $700,000 in prizemoney.

This colt is the first foal from the young Bernardini mare, Admission. She was a talented sprinter, winning twice between 1200 – 1400 metres and is a half-sister to Stakes winners Strat’s Flyer and Bauble.

Limited ownership opportunities are available to race him with DGR and top Eagle Farm-based trainer Chris Anderson. He won’t be on the market for long, so don’t delay in contacting Duncan for more information.

Duncan's Comments

“This colt fits the same mould as our Jan Magic Millions Smart Missile and Chris Anderson stable star Ballistic Boy. All three are athletic horses and were purchased at excellent value in a tearaway market. ”
