Tara Madgwick - Friday December 1

The lure of the $50,000 Super Maiden (1500m) at Mudgee on Friday did not go unnoticed by the Annabel Neasham stable with victory going to their lightly raced Brave Smash (Jpn) gelding Rush Attack.

Fifth and fourth at his first two starts, Rush Attack was sent out well fancied at Mudgee and controlled the race, appreciating a step up in trip to win by a couple of lengths over the Bjorn Baker trained favourite Way to Divine.


A $240,000 Magic Millions purchase from Highgrove Stud  for Tricolours Racing & Syndications Pty Ltd, Rush Attack was the second highest priced yearling from the first crop of Brave Smash, who has since relocated to Yarraman Park after standing his first four seasons for Aquis.

Rush Attack was a $240,000 Magic Millions purchase.

Bred by Highgrove Stud, Rush Attack is the third winner from Sponsored, a well bred Redoute’s Choice sibling to stakes-winners Order of the Sun, Beauty and Get to Work as well as to the dams of Group I winner Summer Passage and stakes-winners All That Pizzazz and Excitable Boy.

Highgrove Stud will offer the current yearling from Sponsored, a colt by Brutal, at Inglis Classic as Lot 734 ad this is a very prolific sales family with no fewer than 15 yearlings entered for upcoming sales from the Subterfuge family, click to see them.

Rush Attack is the tenth winner this season for Brave Smash, who only just missed siring his first Group I winner this spring with his star daughter Kimochi runner-up in both the Group I ATC Flight Stakes and MRC Thousand Guineas.
