Ready to run New Zealand galloper joins Stable.
The stable has recently acquired an exciting racing prospect from New Zealand. He is a son of Smart Missile and boasts some impressive form.
Smart Missile recorded his 104th winner for the season last week, which has him leading the Australian third crop sire table by winners!
As a 2yo, Stephenstihls finished 4th behind G1 winner Luna Rossa. Returning as a 3yo he finished 2nd twice behind subsequent G1 winner Hall Of Fame, one of which at listed level, before winning two in a row and competing in the G1 New Zealand Derby.
Stephenstihls had his first trial in Australia recently, receiving positive reports from both rider and trainer. A high price purchase at Karaka and highly sought after as a yearling, Shea is very eager to see what Stephenstihls can achieve in Australia.
