Stylish Winner for Brazen Beau

Tara Madgwick - Monday June 24
Darley young gun Brazen Beau sired an impressive winner at Scone on Monday with the Kris Lees trained Iconic Star galloping clear to win as she pleased.

Brazen BeauThird at her first run back from a spell when she did plenty wrong, it was a better behaved Iconic Star that stepped out at Scone.

She jumped fast from an outside gate to take up the lead and was never challenged in scoring an easy two and three-quarter length win over older rivals in the 900 metre maiden.

Iconic Star was an $80,000 Magic Millions purchase from the Coolmore draft for Lees Racing and her owners include her breeders Emaroo Bloodstock.

She is the first winner for Order Me (USA), a half-sister by Elusive Quality to stakes-winner Top Cross from the family of Group I winning sprinter Mozart.

Iconic Star is the fifth Australian winner for I Am Invincible's champion son Brazen Beau, who also has five winners in the Northern Hemisphere.

He stands at Darley Victoria this spring at a fee of $49,500.
