Tosen Phantom
Tosen Smash (by Tokei Teio)
2022 Service Fee:
$22,000 (inc. GST)


The Sunday Silence sireline is one of the most powerful in the world and with the continued success of Japanese-bred runners in Australia, the inclusion of dual Gr.1-winning sprinter Brave Smash (Jpn) as a member of Aquis’ stallion roster is an outstanding opportunity for breeders.

Purchased from Japan as a tried horse by Australian Bloodstock in 2017, Brave Smash arrived with the reputation of being a serious sprinter and quickly made his mark finishing third in the inaugural $10m The Everest behind Redzel and Vega Magic.

Competing consistently at the top level, winning the Gr.1 MRC Futurity Stakes (WFA, 1400m) and MVRC Manikato Stakes (WFA, 1200m) Brave Smash also gained further elite level placings in the VRC Newmarket Handicap (twice), MVRC AJ Moir Stakes and MRC CF Orr Stakes.

The fastest entire to win the Manikato Stakes, in a time quicker than outstanding sprinters Lankan Rupee, Chautauqua and Redoute’s Choice, Brave Smash is the fastest son from the Sunday Silence sireline to stand at stud in Australia.

As the best offspring of Tosen Phantom, a grand-son of legendary sire Sunday Silence, from a female family which features Japanese Champions Daiwa Scarlet, Daiwa Major and Vermilion, Brave Smash was supported by many of Australia’s leading breeders in his first two seasons including Australian Bloodstock, Glenlogan Park Stud, Mt Hallowell Stud, Pencarrow Thoroughbreds, Rothwell Park Stud, Toolooganvale Farm, Highgrove Stud, Bhima Thoroughbreds, Bowness Stud and Holbrook Thoroughbreds.

To say the progeny of Brave Smash have been popular at the 2022 yearling sales with trainers, agents, syndicators and owners would be an understatement with purchasers including Ciaron Maher Racing, Australian Bloodstock, Tricolours Racing & Syndications Pty Ltd, Annabel Neasham & Brian McGuire, All Winners Thoroughbreds, Lindsay Park Racing, David Pfieffer Racing, Koolman Bloodstock, Matthew Dunn & Neil Jenkinson, Portelli Racing, Clarken Bloodstock, Richard & Chantelle Jolly, Flying Start Syndications, Pinhook Bloodstock, Ryan & Alexiou Racing, David Raphael, Strong Bloodstock, Robert & Luke Price, Nick Ryan Racing, Kym Waugh etc…

His yearlings sold up to $260,000.
