Monday, 26th February 2007

Meanwhile Emerald Thoroughbreds principal Bell Benson announced Sly Smile (dam of current Gr1 Golden Slipper favourite Danehill Smile) is for sale (in-foal to Oaklands Stud sire Break The Vault) for $770,000 via agent Brett Howard from Randwick Bloodstock. Benson declared: "I'm a trader! If I sell Sly Smile & Danehill Smile wins the Slipper, then I will be the first to congratulate the new owner." Last start unbeaten 2YO filly Danehill Smile (Danehill Dancer-Sly Smile, by Crafty Prospector) defeated the males to score a decisive 5-lengths victory in the $500,000 Inglis Classic (1200m) at Royal Randwick in Sydney on February 10. Danehill Smile (a $50,000 yearling at the 2006 Inglis Classic Sale in Sydney) took her record to 3 wins (also including the $70,000 Listed Canonbury Stakes over 1100m at Randwick in her previous run on December 23) from 3 starts for $429,500 prize-money. Her dam Sly Smile (out of US Gr2-winner Raja's Delight) was herself a 2YO winner in the US & as well as Danehill Smile, has produced 4 other winners (including multiple Macau winner King's Power).
