Brave Smash(JPN)(Tosen Phantom), multiple G1 winner in Australia, becomes the first great-grandson of Sunday Silence(USA) to stand outside of Japan. 8-)

Image
“Physically, Brave Smash is built in the same mould as some of the most successful sires in the country right now and his bloodlines dictate that when he retires to the breeding barn he will be the perfect outcross for the huge number of Danehill line mares available.”

“He is unquestionably amongst the most elite sprinters in the land. He beat 8 Group 1 winners at his two Group 1 wins and was the first entire home in the initial running of The Everest last year.”
