I Am Invincible’s Group 1 winning son Brazen Beau has already proven his worth in Australia with smart winners Tassort and Accession and started his Northern Hemisphere stud career in a similar vein with his first winner in the UK.
The Bryan Smart trained colt Proper Beau is the first Northern Hemisphere winner for Brazen Beau an gave his sire the perfect start when scoring a determined neck win over race favourite Alminoor in the five furlong juvenile contest.
“I was over the moon with that. Proper Beau always showed us a bit at home and I’d have been gutted if he wasn’t in the first three. He hit the front and idled but came a long way clear with the second. I want to mind him. His next run will be in a conditions race and that’ll tell us how good he is, and whether we have a Royal Ascot horse,” said Smart.
Purchased for just 34,000 guineas at Tattersalls October as a yearling, Proper Beau is the fifth winner from stakes-placed Pivotal mare Olivia Grace.
He currently stands at Darley Northwood Park and the second crop of Australian yearlings by Brazen Beau has been very popular at the sales this year particularly at the Inglis Premier Yearling Sale where 17 of them averaged $285,294.
