7/10/2018 First for Smart Missile

The Mark Newnham-trained Maid Of Heaven (3 f ex St Therese by Dehere) produced an impressive display to win the Spring Champion Stakes (Gr 1, 2000m) at Randwick yesterday and in the process provided Smart Missile (Fastnet Rock) with his first Group 1 winner and seventh stakes winner. The three-year-old filly was purchased by Dean Hawthorne Bloodstock for $60,000 at the Inglis Classic Yearling Sale from the Arrowfield Stud draft. Smart Missile stands at Twin Hills Stud for a fee of $13,200 (inc GST).
