Desert Smile is a sensational breeding proposition, by Champion First Season Sire, Pride of Dubai out of a mare by Champion Sire, Fastnet Rock, that should develop into a beautiful broodmare in the coming years and provides multitudes of options for breeders.

Expertly bred by Sheikh Mohammed Bin Khalifa Al Maktoum, with sex-balanced crosses of of Mr. Prospector and Danehill within four generations, she is selling unreserved for astute breeders to reap the rewards of her future career.

Her racing career has unfortunately been hindered by regular injuries which have not allowed her to show her promise on the track.

Her recent trial second placing behind subsequent winner Patino Ruby and in front of subsequent winner Banju had her connections hoping for imminent success, but that was not to be.

Desert Smile’s page will grow nicely in coming years with her dam producing fillies by All Too Hard and Sooboog in recent years and her granddam still active in New Zealand being bred recently to stallions such as Vadamos and Reliable Man.

Desert Smile is on the market unreserved so that you can bid with confidence.
