Stallion Brazen Beau’s first season just continues to get better.
The champion sprinter and dual Group One winner has got two talented colts from his first crop to race in Australia and today he had a smart winner at Scone in the Kris Lees-trained filly Iconic Star.
Iconic Star drew an outside gate but showed brilliant speed to cross to the lead and turned the race into a procession winning the 900 metres in a slick 51.55 seconds. She scorched the last 600 metres in 32.9 seconds.
“Brazen Beau has had a great start to his career in Australia and the Northern Hemisphere and it’s good to see his fillies starting to show form,” said Ontrack Thoroughbreds’ Grant Morgan.
Ontrack purchased Brazen Beau for $70,000 from the Inglis Classic Sale and syndicated the horse. He won two Group Ones, the Coolmore Stakes and Newmarket Handicap, before being sold to Godolphin in a multi-million dollar deal.
“He’s got two standout colts in Australia in Accession and Tassort and in the Northern Hemisphere he’s left a black type winning filly in Avengers Queen and the Group Two placegetter at Royal Ascot in Dubai Station.
“Beau has a light representation in his first Australian crop as he only had 86 foals and that’s a low number when you look at numbers left by many of the stallions he’s up against.
“To achieve the results he’s getting with such light numbers is great and many good judges will tell you that his second crop foals are going to be even better, so it’s full steam ahead for the horse,” said Grant Morgan.
