Smart Missile Colt Fastest at GC Breeze Ups
A colt by Arrowfield Stud stallion Smart Missile posted the fastest time during yesterday's successful breeze up session at the Gold Coast. Catalogued as Lot 58, the colt stopped the clock in 10.42 seconds for his timed 200 metre sectional in a performance that impressed the team from Kenmore Lodge. The Smart Missile youngster was one of five to break 10.5 seconds during the day with 2YOs by Star Witness, Love Conquers All, Rothesay and Nicconi also posting sub-10.5 second times. The times were impressive considering the warm weather produced a stiff northerly breeze in which the runners faced head on for their timed breeze.
