Brave Halo unbeaten, She's Extreme cracks the million
25 Oct 2022
The first and only runner for Aquis Farm's first season sire Brave Smash (JPN), two-year-old colt Brave Halo was an impressive debut winner at Ascot two weeks ago and backed it up on Saturday with an even more dominant 2.84L win under Jordan Turner.
Trained by Sean and Jake Casey for prolific owner Wally Daly, Brave Halo (ex Danish Bingo, by Sebring) was prepared at Willow Park and sold at the 2021 Magic Millions Weanling Sale on behalf of Aquis Farm, where he fetched $135,000 to the bid of Hancock Quality Bloodstock and was the second highest price for his sire at the sale.
The exciting colt has already earned $87,680 in his two starts to date and positions Brave Smash in and early second place on the leading first season sires list.
Star graduate She's Extreme (Extreme Choice x Keysbrook) took her earnings past the $1million mark on Saturday with another stellar performance for third in the Group 1 Spring Champion Stakes at Randwick.
Flying home from a less than ideal position, She's Extreme finished a closing half length off the winner, adding a third Group 1 placing to her record. With 10 starts under her belt, the tough filly counts a Group 1 win, a Group 3 win and five Group placings in her record.
Trained by Anthony Cummings, She's Extreme was sold at the 2021 Inglis Easter Yearling Sale for $275,000 and has proven herself to be among the top two and three-year-olds of her year.
