Emerging stallion Brazen Beau’s freshman season just gets better with another exciting prospect unveiled at Terang yesterday.
Sartorial Splendor, a colt by Brazen Beau from the Rubiton mare Personal Ensign, made his debut for Caulfield trainer John Sadler and the result was a highly impressive win.
In spite of jumping from the outside barrier, Sartorial Splendor was heavily backed and he never gave his army of supporters any reason for doubt, showing great speed to cross over and lead before kicking away to win by more than two lengths.
“Sartorial Splendor is Brazen Beau’s third winner from his first crop of runners in Australia and his first runner in the Northern Hemisphere was a winner last week so he’s off to a flying start.
“I was really impressed by Sartorial Splendor when he was offered by Blue Gum Farm at last year’s Inglis Melbourne Premier Sale and it comes as no surprise to see that he’s grown into a lovely two-year-old.
“John Sadler bought him for $120,000 and he’s a half-brother to a very good two-year-old performer in Fontiton while his mother won twice at two.
“When you see the prices being paid for Brazen Beau yearlings this year, this colt looks to be a bargain buy.
“On what he did at Terang it’s easy to see him making the step to city company in Melbourne.
“We’ve bought some lovely Magic Millions yearlings by Brazen Beau this year and they are all shaping up well and there’s plenty of confidence in the industry to say that his second crop are going to be even better than his first.
“If that confidence is well placed, then look out for the Brazen Beau youngsters next season,” said Grant Morgan.
