When the hammer fell on KEEP THE FAITH he was on his way to the Lindsay Park stable with a price tag of $1.2m. The judges swayed by his amazing looks were proven correct as he consequently grew to be a stakes winning racehorse with brilliant speed.

The robust son of SUNDAY SILENCE was a top-class sprinter-miler in both Australia and North America. Lightly raced he clocked a tick outside Northerly’s 1600m track record to win the LR Schweppervescence Cup at Caulfield, before heading to the US where he also shattered the North American turf record for 1200m in a sizzling 1.06.82s at Belmont Park.
Already the sire of winners of over 100 races from his first two crops and with stakes winners DINKUM DIAMOND, LUCKY PENNY and SOCKS as well as stakes placed horses like Sayahailmary and The Counterfitter already to his credit, he is making a big impression as a winner-getting stallion!
The filly’s dam, SMOOTH AS SILK is a half sister to Alsatia, the dam of dual G2 winner WHITEFRIARS. With black type across the page, she hails from the family of G1 winners, ENGLISH WONDER, DR GRACE, ASIA and CALVEEN as well as stakes winners KOSI BAY and STRIKER.
On the racetrack, Smooth As Silk’s 12 start career, saw her placed in half of her runs and so highly regarded that she ran in both the LR Lindsay Park Guineas and then the G1 South Australian Oaks before her career was unfortunately cut short.
As a broodmare she hasn’t missed the mark either, from her 2 foals to hit the track so far, she has produced the talented Moonee Valley winner OUR INHERITENCE, and promising 3yo filly, HAI LIL, already a winner from just four starts.
With all of that on top of the fact that she was personally selected from the sales by Luke Oliver to race for himself, she really is a filly you can’t afford to miss!
